Not a duff track on it.,
This review is from: Broken Boy Soldiers (Audio CD)
A lot of people seem to be saying "better than the White Stripes". I'm not really sure about that. It's just less blues-based, less stripped-down and probably as a result, more accessible.
I saw The Raconteurs at Leeds Festival last year, and they were simply the best band of the entire weekend - that I saw. They just knocked the entire audience flat. So tight, and real heavy. The album isn't as heavy as the live performance but it's tunes are beautifully infectious and sing-a-long, inventive, and yes, poppy.
Now, since I got an iPod, I have been making a playlist of all my favourite tunes from whatever records I put on it. And the thing with the Raconteurs album is that I haven't put even one song on that playlist. And the reason for that is that I like them all. I can't pick one, two or even three that I like above the rest. So there's no point in putting the whole thing on a playlist. This is the only album that I have so far had this problem with. I think that's quite high praise.
