Once again Jack White, lover of blues, funk, soul, and good old fashioned rock and roll, has dipped into his bag of inventiveness and has created an album more eclectic than his 2012 release "Blunderbuss." It's taken him a year and a half to make it, and if the rumors are true it is said he destroyed the original versions and started from scratch.

In interviews he has said the lyrics were inspired by old stories and writings from his 13 year old self. He said some of it was laughable, but I listened, because... it's who he is and not what he does, at least not that much. He's a truly independent artist, and rarely asks for anyone's help, unless he's recording in digital, which is NOT what he does. You DO know Jack records strictly in analog (on two old 8-track recorders), because "it just sounds more real."

Here's my 30 second gut review of each song - the album is only 39 minutes long...

01 - Three Women - 1972 called but is FINE with you re-creating their sound, fuzzy guitars and dirty soul organ grinding and all, about his love for the number one subject of every rock and roll teen boy playing his guitar - times three!

02 - Lazaretto - I like this song, not just because it's an instant guitar player's classic, but the music and lyrics are top notch and reminds us why we like Jack and his unique sound - he's everywhere on this single and it shows. From Catholic rites to Jack Chick religious tracts and several philosophers, he circles the globe in your mind.

03 - Temporary Ground - this duet with Nashville artist Lillie Mae Rische (who also play a little fiddle) takes you on a ride around the block to the country side of his world, and it's it's pretty good.

I didn't buy this as a fan of Jack White's music (I'm not in general) but because of the bells, whistles and general kitchen sink of novelties that this vinyl pressing has had thrown at it.

As it turns out I do like the album, and I may grow to like it a lot. There is variety, yet consistency too. Some of the lyrics are religiously controversial/arguably disrespectful, which some may find offensive or hard to stomach. But how are the quirks that the vinyl offered?

THE NOVELTIES:

Side 1 is cut inside to out, and has enough distance from the end of the side so that those with an auto player should still be able place the stylus without kicking the auto return into gear. What is a little frustrating is that the first track has no lead in groove, so it is hard to get the very beginning of the track. If you are able, you may find the best route is to get the stylus in the groove and gently rotate backwards to cue up the beginning of the track.

Instead of inner groove there is a moving hologram, which can be hard to see in normal daylight. I was able to see the upside down angel by shining the lamp on my mobile phone at the area, the correct way up one was harder - strangely it was easier to see on the display of my phone than on the record. The hologram area looks like a randomly cut/damaged by misshandling mass squiggly groove(s) until lit up correctly. Clever.

The last track on side 1 has some oomph in it, so is well placed to finish on the outside of the record. The locked groove is nothing special or particularly musical - a guitar whine, which in just a few rotations was sounding very worn on my copy. (Tracking at around 1.4 g.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why Jack, Why! 25 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Jack White, no!..........I don't think you understand......I really love Jack White.
So it's breaking my heart having to rate this as 3 stars.
Music wise, it's perfect as usual, but lyric wise........it stinks on a lot of the songs.
I thought maybe the album had been rushed out, but I have since found out that he used lyrics
that he had written when he was 19 in some of the songs.......and you can tell!
It's a real shame as well, because the first single Lazaretto is up there with his best stuff.
So Jack, please burn all of you old note books pre White Stripes and nothing more will be said!
I can't wait for his next album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant, just a tad on the tame side though! 27 July 2014
By TOOTS
Format:Audio CD
While this isn't a bad album in any way, I cant help but compare it to Blunderbuss and I think the former was more fun and satisfying overall. "Freedom at 21" is gonna be a tough cookie to beat and there's nothing here that quite reaches the same heights! "I'm shakin" was also a favourite during the very start of taking in the first listens and quite rightfully ended up being a single. So, back to this album, the title track is most likely going to be the people's favourite. Track 9 is quite an interesting listen, probably will be my second favourite on the playlist. Not much left to add really... I'm not sorry I forked out for this album!

Unfortunately I found this CD a bit of a let down. A lot of the tracks sound like they haven't quite been finished.
The opener Three Women is a classic example, cool track and then it gets to the chorus. I would've preferred to have waited another month for it's release so Jack could've finished the lyrics and sprinkled a bit more fairy dust on each tune.

Some tracks are great though, Temporary Ground is one particular favourite, and of course the track Lazaretto, but I find this CD falls well short of Blunderbuss which was by far my favourite album of 2012.
