Loved the video. Very moving. While I don't exactly know what Frank might have been going for with the video, I think a YouTube commenter had a good take on it:
Quote:
Seamus Heaney famously uses the image of digging as a metaphor for writing poetry and rediscovering his roots. The honesty and introspection involved in Frank's music is sometimes very resonant of this attitude, if not style. Thus the crowds and interest gathered around the digging becomes a metaphor for the strange relationship between personal reflection and public music. While I have no idea whether this was Frank's intentions with this video, but I still think that it's a beautiful image.

I don't know if it's because I discovered Frank Turner later in his career or what but I thought 'England Keep my Bones' was his best album... Until Tape Deck Hearts came out! I hear a lot of negative comments about this new album but I think it is one of the best pieces of music I've heard in a long long time! I love this new album, it will most definitely make my top 10 AOTY, I hope other people feel the same.

I thought the video was just basically him digging himself a hole deeper and deeper which seems like a huge deal at the time until he finally gets out of it only to show he's clearly done it many times before and probably will again. A metaphor for fucking up in relationships that would fit the general theme of the record.

Also I'd probably give Broken Piano or Plain Sailing Weather the title of best song on the album but this one's not too far behind.

some interesting interpretations on this thread, well done. I wouldn't put 'The Way I Tend to Be' as the best song on the record, but I'd put it in the bunch of the great ones. Plain Sailing Weather, Polaroid Picture and Recovery touched me more, so to speak.

Agreed. All three songs are great. Broken Piano is an absolutely beautiful track.
