Jack and friends just fooling around?
on 17 May 2006
I must admit I bought this ALBUM because the premise looked good and the 2 songs I had heard were rather good. However, I find myself a little disappointed by it. It all seems a little rushed and half-baked. There are some terrific songs on here such as the title track, the opener, "Steady, As She Goes" and "Level" but there are also some clear fillers which is criminal for such a short running time.
To me this is Jack White having fun with the boys, which is great and why shouldn't he, but I feel he could have put a bit more effort into it.
It is a good, rollicking ALBUM full of eclecticism which recreates a great late 60's early 70's vibe but it is not the classic debut that everyone is gushing about either.
