Setanta – 2005 – 42 minutes

Turn's self-titled third album is a disappointment from a band that we would have expected to show some more originality and savvy at this stage in their career.

Singer Ollie Cole proves that he can hold a tune and there are a couple of nice numbers like 'Stop' and 'It's About Nothing'.

However, the songs seem to have been grouped together for the sole reason that they were written at the same time. They don't complement each other or show any exceptional talent sprouting from this band.

Indeed given the fact that two of the titles on the album contain the words 'waste' and 'time', any likely purchasers could be forgiven for spending their money elsewhere.

The standard of the songs varies from the acceptable ('It's About Nothing' and 'Wildside') to the awful ('No One's Gonna Change Your Life But You').

A lot more had been expected after Turn gave a show-stopping performance at the Oxegen festival this year, however it looks like we will have to wait until next time out for the band to translate this to a studio setting.
