The freshman album from the Dead Weather's really hit the ground running. The album is a good solid rock album with a driving percussive sound. The really nice thing about the album is the use of an older sound mixed with back up synthesizer. The mix of different sounds makes the album easy to a whole and not just for singles. As with most Jack White side projects they always come out on top and The Dead Weather's are no different.
With a gritty female lead singer and old recorded sound makes this album great. Alison Mosshart's lead vocals and Jack White's back ups make the album what it is. The great thing about the album is how it still has radio appeal. I hear the song for sporting event commercial and even heard it as Muzak at the grocer store.
The album will give you everything you might be looking for in a rock album. It will also show you how truly great a musician Jack White is.
