this is a great album by a great musician. great review.
As a head of three major rock outfits (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather) and a long-time favorite all three of LxL’s constituents, Jack White (and his debut solo album Blunderbuss) is a natural to get our three-way review royale treatment. As arguably the most hyped release of 2012, the amount of discussion and hype surrounding an album such as this often gets so bloated that the album itself turns out to be a bit of a disappointment, and I will say that upon first listen I thought that may have been the case. But Blunderbuss is not the sort of album that hits you over the head the first time you hear it (even if “Sixteen Saltines” does), but slowly crawls its way into your head and heart.
