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.

Jack has packed loads into this album for us.
Do yourself a favour and search YouTube for Lazaretto Ultra Album and you can see Jack explain all the records tricks.
IMPORTANT side A plays from the INSIDE to the OUTSIDE of the record. Side B is as normal.

I love this album, I really do, for many reasons, but most of all it's a showcase of Jack White's incredible talents. The style of 'Lazaretto', his second studio album is so varied that you just can't categorise it under just the one genre. Here we have rock music that dips into garage, alternative, blues, folk and country. The songs were partly inspired by a collection of short stories, poems, and plays that Jack wrote when he was in his late teens, which he rediscovered in his attic a few years later.

With simplistic but masterful guitar and drums, each track is noteworthy in it's own right, but there are two haunting songs which stand out as my 'favourites'. 'Alone in My Home' is a lovely song with a sweet melody but dark lyrics, where Jack compares himself to a 'ghost', and towards the end I feel like he is practically daring the listener to understand him. 'Would You Fight For My Love' is stunning, with honest and open lyrics expressing how afraid he is of getting hurt in relationships and how he wants his promiscuous girl to 'fight for him' and love him as much as he loves her, it opens with a piano and guitar and is one of the most 'meatiest' songs of the album.

I regard 'Lazaretto' as Jack's best work yet, and that includes those amazing albums he did under The White Stripes. This is a record that you need in your life. Quite rightly, an awesome album should have an awesome cover, and as you can see, this one certainly has that. Well done Jack, looking forward to the next one!
