I bought this album after only hearing Blue Orchid and The Nurse, and also because i am a huge White Stripes fan.
The whole album is not dissapointing in the least. There has been doubt previous to the release after Jack White stated that he didn't much use his guitar on the album, but none of these people had heard the album.

The album has two surprising tracks, firstly "Ripchord", a song similar in style to the snippets of "How i choose to remember it" that you hear between the tracks one second album "The execution of all things". Secondly "I Never" A very surprising style for the band, a sassy soul song with Lewis' beautiful voice… Read more
