In banding together to create the Dead Weather, Jack White and Alison Mosshart, of the White Stripes and the Kills fame, have struck gold. Having never heard much of either of thier former bands work, I bought this second offering from rock's biggest supergroup based solely on thier first album 'Horehound' which was never going to be an easy act to follow. But let me tell you, Sea of Cowards easily surpasses it's predecessor by a mile. It grows on the sound they explored in Horehound but cranks the bluesey funk-o-metre up to 11.

It's near impossible to pick one single highlight or standout track with each offering a convincing case. Blue Blood Blues is an excellent opener which flows effortlessly into Hustle and Cuss, a track that sounds like Horehounds "Hang You Up From The Heavens" direct descendant. Third track "The Differnece Between Us" is a synth and guitar infused popfest with Mosshart's vocals soaring in a terribly catchy chorus.

I'm Mad and Die By The Drop are both intensely haunting and gothic. I Can't Hear You slows the tempo right down but this isn't a bad thing as the bluesy feel keeps you hooked. Gasoline and No Horse are two of my favourite tracks with the former being a short burst of shrieking Mosshart vocals and squealing guitar riffs.

Looking at The Invisible Man is a strange track which failed to grow on me which is a shame as for me it is the only low-point of the 35 minute run time. Luckily Jawbreaker is a track made in the same mould as Gasoline and it rocks so hard it might just live up to it's namesake.

Lastly Old Mary is a return to some of The Dead Weather's first album with the tempo being slowed right down and the spooky eerie feeling returning. It's an odd way to finish, but it feels like it fits.

Jack White has so many bands and side projects, that arguably if you don't like one of them, there will be another one along in a minute - anyone who thought his most recent solo album was a little bit twee, and perhaps prefers the Raconteurs, should check this out. The aim of this supergroup seems to be to explore the concept of 'noise as music' fairly fully, and for the aforementioned Mr White to give an extensive work out to a couple of particularly dissonant guitar effect pedals. Add in the excellent vocal support of Alison Mosshart, who to my mind has some rather stronger songs to deliver here than on recent releases by her main band The Kills, and overall this is an impressive blend of post-punk and blues

Pared down rock blues, the way only Jack White knows how to do it. And he surrounds himself with equally talented musicians on this CD.

Enjoy.

I bought 'Sea of Cowards' through Amazon a few days before seeing The Dead Weather at The Roundhouse in their post-Glastonbury whistle-stop tour, having loved loved loved the first album 'Horehound'. I just had time to start absorbing the tracks before the live versions blew away any notion of listening to any other band for the following 3 weeks! In Alison Mosshart, Jack White has found his Muse, a perfect foil to fence and interchange with his own lyrical genius, blending and soaring with and above the excellent Fertita/Lawrence musicianship. Here is a band unfettered by the whim of self-important producers, unaffected by their own ego or the homogenous mass of same-sounding turpitude ushered in by 'r&b' factories for the less-discerning ears of the Cowell era. They are all excellent musicians who interchange effortlessly on stage, and therefore in the studio. They just love doing what they do! Alison Mosshart's stage presence when in this guise is jaw-dropping, the near-equal of JW himself. A no-nonsence approach to 'hit hard & then hit again' track sequences seen previously on Raconteurs' albums is again applied here. Sea of Cowards was continuously on play in my car, in the home and on my Creative Zen (accept no substitute)for at least 3 weeks, and I mean continuous. I even tried to get into other albums, I just could not do it - everything else (except Horehound) seemed just luke-warm for the best part of a month. Favourite tracks? All of them have been in turn (with the possible exclusion of Old Mary - but I still recognise its genius), however the enduring favourites now are 'Hustle & Cuss', 'The Difference Between Us', 'Gasoline' (both of which show Mosshart at her very best)and 'Jawbreaker'. Oh and play it loud!
