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.

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!

I got this record as a present for my husband, he loved it. It has many crazy features that you won't find in ANY other records. My husband said it complemented his collection as it is very rare. My favorite features are that you can play an acustic and electric version of the same song in the same place (it's kind of like a game.... When the needle touches down you don't know which you gonna get) and I liked the Angels that appear when you point a light right on op of it! Never seen something like that.
I would recomend as a present or an extra top off you collection.

I’ve been a fan of Jack White’s music pretty much from when the rest of the world discovered his talent, after The White Stripes’ “White Blood Cells” was released back in 2001, and have followed his largely impressive career closely ever since, so any new album is always something I look forward to. White started working on the follow-up to 2012’s excellent “Blunderbuss” whilst he was touring his first solo album, taking the inspiration for many of the songs from short stories and plays he wrote when he was a teenager, despite the ridiculous nature of some of them. With a large and varied cast of musicians, “Lazaretto” is a full-sounding album and, although this is an unmistakeably Jack White release, it feels more like the product of a band, rather than the stripped-down sound that was the trademark of most of The White Stripes’ work. Strangely enough, it starts off a little shakily, with White bragging over a bluesy riff played on guitar and organ that he has “Three Women” on the go and the chorus of “Lordy, lord!” repeated over and over again doesn’t help endear it to this listener either. It’s a shame the lyrics are so puerile, because the music behind it is actually quite good; it’s just difficult to switch off from the lyrics and enjoy it on a surface level.

The title track and lead single “Lazaretto” is also a fairly standard blues-riff-based Jack White track and, although thoroughly decent, is an odd choice to promote the album as it’s the sort of thing you’ve heard several times from him before. You could be forgiven, at this point, for thinking the album isn’t going to be anything special.
