I really wasn't expecting this. A stone cold classic from Jack White. I mean he's had a good track record but it seemed he was spreading himself too thin. Playing in a couple of bands, lending his guitar to other people's records, producing iconic artists was overexposing him and diluting his image. I was thinking it would water down his own material.
I was wrong. Jack White's debut solo album Blunderbuss, put today, is a fantastic record. Hooray for Mr. White to prove that rock and roll is far from dead. In his hands it is a living, breathing force to be reckoned with.
