after the introspection of 'tape deck heart', the winchester folk-punk star goes back to air-punching basics on a sixth album that further defines his emotional libertarianism and rabble-rousing melodicism.

Like much of Turner’s work, it is a record that takes Life’s Big Issues – triumphing over the darkest adversities – and places them inside a mix of beguiling, intricate vignettes and sweeping anthems. 'Josephine' is a punky singalong and 'Mittens' is a fist-clenched song of defiance whilst tracks such as 'Glorious You' and 'Demons' pack a bittersweet emotional punch. That it begins with 'The Angel Islington', a tribute to his current North London home, and ends with 'Song For Josh', a touching eulogy recorded live at the 9.30 Club in Washington, is an apt reflection of the journey Turner has made over the past 10 years. 'Positive Songs For Negative People' is Turner at both his most reflective and celebratory. "confrontational yet communal" 4/5 - q. "arena-sized melodic hooks" - mojo.
