5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 31 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
I first saw the Raconteurs at Reading two years ago and was completely blown away by their set. I liked White Stripes before that, but this was much, much richer and more varied. It seemed as if JW had really found had found the perfect context for his mercurial talent...

So I bought Broken Boy Soldiers on the strength of the concert and was mildly disappointed. Sure, Steady As She Goes is catchy and Intimate Secretary or Store Boght Bones are terrific tracks but they kind of paled in comparison to the live performance.

So when Consolers of the Lonely came out, I wasn't entirely sure whether I really needed another Raconteurs studio album. However, the love of my life bought it for me and I will be forever grateful that she did!

The album is an absolute gem from start to finish. It is more varied and confident than SBB and it doesn't have a weak track on it. There are some standout tracks such as You Don't Understand Me, Rich Kid Blues and These Stones Will Shout, but really you'll want to listen to all of this over and over again.

One of the albums of the year without a doubt!

5.0 out of 5 stars Restores my faith in rock n roll 20 April 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a bloke in his mid forties who grew up in the seventies on a diet of music ranging from Cream to Joni Mitchell,Led Zeppelin to Nick Drake and David Bowie to Free.

I own 1000 vinyl albums and about 600 CD's. Do not write reviews on here very often as find most are written by people only interested in a particular genre rather than a love of complete range of music.

And now to the point. This is a truly astonihing record. The best thing i have heard in years. White and Benson have combined to create a mini masterpiece. Raw powerful blues based rock n roll.

People moan about it being derivative, but heh what isn't or ever has been?

From the kickass rock of Attention to the blues/soul of Many Shades of Black this has it all.

Come on Britich bands. We made the best rock and roll in the sixties and seventies. We can do again. Am i the only one bored with a string of mediorce post punk wannabees? Rather than listening to The Velvets,Gang of Four and Joy Division....put on some Cream,Stones, Zeppelin and this and make our music more interesting again.

BUY BUY BUY. You wont be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the Year 23 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those albums I put on if someone complains that music 'is not what it used to be'. It is a rare moment where brilliant musicians and song writers find themselves in the studio at the top of their game. No pretensions. Pure, honest Rock and Roll. All the influences are there. Townsend, Page etc....
It's a shame the first single was 'I salute..' because this is the weakest on the album in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far better than their debut 13 April 2008
By Sparky
Format:Audio CD
This is just a quick review for the White Stripes fans that, like me, thought the first Raconteurs album was boring in places - this second album is absolutely superb. After about five listens, I can safely say that there is not a single duff track here.

Consoler of the Lonely - 4/5
Salute Your Solution 3/5
You Don't Understand Me - 5/5
Old Enough - 3/5
The Switch and The Spur - 4/5
Hold Up - 3/5
Top Yourself - 3/5
Many Shade of Black - 5/5
Five on The Five - 4/5
Attention - 5/5
Pull This Blanket Off - 3/5
Rich Kid Blues - 4/5
These Stones Will Shout - 4/5
Carolina Drama - 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best sounding album ever. 11 Dec 2009
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
The vinyl edition of this album sounds amazing, with everything sounding realistic and natural (except Jack White's distorted guitar of course). It just goes to show that with todays technology music with exceptional sound quality can be made when it is not aimed at ipod users. The songs on this album are generally very strong and represent a true partnership between Jack White's bluesy rock and Bredon Benson's melodic pop. The album explores an impressive variety of styles and is always interesting. It is also great to hear Brendon Benson sing melodically in a Jack White rock song and a great guitar solo in a Brendon Benson song. This is in my opinion the album of the decade but you will probably need the vinyl edition and a decent stereo to understand why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtakingly Diverse 12 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well done guys. A very special album that manages to have so much of what is great about Jack White without sounding like more of the same. I never grow bored of it and it often makes me smile. There are also a couple of the most striking real-life love (without a hint of slush) songs on this album that frequently raise a tear. They alone convince me of the brilliance behind this album. Go on...at that price...do yourself a favour!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lonely no more 31 Dec 2008
By J.J.
Format:MP3 Download
Should get six stars when I can only give it five! A powerful mix to appeal to those with a taste for a spendid blend of rock/country/folk....with more than a little hint of the 'White Stripes' perhaps a dash of Frank Black this is the Raconteurs at their best - well until their next album perhaps. Lock and load and blow those eardrums away..enjoy.
