Great! Although Tape Deck was a grower for me, I'd put it up there with the best of his.

Heard him play three of these last weekend, expect an amazing next album. He put his soul out to bare in 'Little Aphrodite' and it's sequel. It was almost uncomfortable to watch, just because it seemed so personal . Can't wait to hear a recorded version and I hope he gets even more us airplay.

Wish he was recording a new album and not just demos. Really like Frank's music and storytelling. Hope this becomes a 2014 release.

It's been a year since Tape Deck Heart (and all the songs on the album were written well before that). I don't think it's out of the question to write 12-18 good to great songs in a year and a half+. He's also a solo artist (yes he has the Sleeping Souls, but he is the main writer). I say keep'em coming. Some artists don't require lots of time between writing like Brian Fallon, Dustin Kensrue, Kevin Devine, Andy Hull for example. There a lot who can like Frank and for multiple projects. Then you have guys like Brand New.

The Smiths put out 4 incredible albums in 4 years, sometimes quality comes quickly.

When you're inspired, write it down and record it.

yeah, i understand your point to an extent. it just seems like each album has gotten progressively not as good as the last one over the last 6 years or so. as for the other artists you mentioned, i wouldnt say each album theyve put out has been renowned. but i also havent been a fan of the gaslight anthem in like, 7 years. all of thrice's stuff is good, dustins solo and new stuff, not so much. the only artist i can think of off the top of my head who is a machine that has a near flawless canon is trent reznor and even he has his missteps.

Yeah, I definitely disagree. I think Poetry is easily his weakest and England and TDH were both better and his new stuff sounds great too. Plus The Beatles are pretty well regarded and they put out an unbelievable amount of music in a short space of time.
