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.

In an era where it can take a band sometimes 4 years if not longer to follow up their debut album it comes as a refreshing change that The Dead Weather haven't even waited a year to deliver album number 2 "Sea Of Cowards", yes its just ten short months ago that debut album "horehound" was released. It was originally thought it was just a Jack White and Alison Mosshart(The Kills) collaboration but it soon became clear that Jack Lawerence(The Greenhorns) and Dean Fertita(queens of the stone age) also played a big part in the writing and preforming of Horehound.

So here we are with album number 2 with the same line up intact, and with the only concern is would it be as good as Horehound or would it end up being too rushed! Thankfully it doesn't suffer from any of these things and in many ways outshines Horehound! When the first single Die by the drop was released the minute you heard it you knew it was The Dead Weather with their signature organ opening(think Bone House on Horehound), so the next question would be was their any development in their sound or would they be happy to rest on their laurels and play it safe? Well as we know Jack White doesn't believe in playing it safe. Opener "Blue Blood Blues" proves this as it continues in the fashion of Horehounds I Cut Like A Buffalo which always had a funkier feel and Sea Of Cowards has much more of a funkier feel this time compared to Horehound , the Mosshart/White written "The Difference Between Us" see Mosshart taking over vocal duties and also includes that familiar organ sound.

Jack White knows how to deliver and with the Dead Weather's second studio creative explosion, the sea of cowards is one of the best sounding/performed/engineered/produced albums in the last decade.
Rarely does an album come where every song blows your mind sends orgasmic tones down your ears.
The bass and drums sound incredible!
Plenty of Moog Little Phatty synthesizer and of course wonderful hammond organ through the Leslie speaker.
This album is 2" 8 track Analog tape and is so phatt on every level. Third Man Studios is the best

Buy this album or the LP, drop the needle on.

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!
