well, lately ì've been hearing a lot of them, VMA, new single "steady as she goes"( nice video) and i wondered what you guys think about them, i like them ( not really my style thought) and i think they will go pritty far...


sorry for the crappy grammar..

I think they are pretty good, and its the perfect way for jack white to prove how good he really is, with a band that is decent. I like their music to some degree, but as you said as well, its not really what I'm in to. It definately doens't suck

The white stripes were really just jack white with a bad drum machine. The raconteurs are Jack White with a good drummer, good bassist, and good second lead guitarist. And I love the White Stripes. So yes, I too love the Raconteurs.

Oh, and I'm predicting Jack White will make one more White Stripes album, call it quits and move on with this band. Call me wrong.

i think he should stick with the white stripes.
raconteurs are just meh.

Yea, a friend of mine had it the first week of August, and he'd had it for a while before then too. I'm not sure of the exact date though

The White Stripes are better, but I like the Raconteurs.

Steady As She Goes has two different videos. It's weird. One their in a house, the other it's like a soapbox derby race.
#11
"Steady As She Goes" is a catchy song, and I was pissed that at the VMA they didn't get much screentime. Of course, rap and hip/hop fillers were more important to MTV

I think they're really good, and sorry to be cliches, but I still prefer the stripes rawer sounding albums.

Raconteurs I prefer to GBMS though.

Broken Boy Soldiers is my favourite song by them.

I like them. I thought the Stripes were better but The Raconteurs are gonna release some good albums.

I just saw them live at Austin City Limits and they were incredible. I haven't heard their album but I was just blown away, probably the best show I saw next to Muse.

The albums is a bit short, but it's very good. Each song is completely different. I think i still prefer the Stripes though, but I don't mind. The Greenhornes and Brendan Benson are good artists too.

Raconteurs are a great band. The CD is great at the first few songs then kinda drags along with a few gems in between. Broken Boy Soldiers and Level are the best songs on the cd. Too bad Level is really short, it could have been even better if there was another minute or so added to the song.

bit boring i think. its fun to rewrite the lyrics to steady as she goes though

I'm downloading it right now. I'm almost certain that it's not gonna be very groundbreaking but it will most likely be quaility stuff.
