The first thing that strikes you about ‘Stop’ is its complete lack of balls. There was a time when Turn were well on their way to becoming the best rock band this country has produced since Whipping Boy. However, the days of tracks like ‘Face Down’ and ‘Beeswax’ are seemingly over. Given the snip, ‘Stop’ is a slice of radio friendly day-time pop very much in the vein of Snow Patrol. There’s even East 17-style Christmas glistenings at the track’s close. Far from their best work.
