Sound — 10
Dude, when I first heard about Jack White doing a new side project I wasn't to happy because I love The White Stripes but, I picked up this CD a few weeks early and was Amazed. Jack White's vocals along with the nifty guitar of Brendan Benson and Jack Lawrence on bass and we can't forget Patrick Keeler on the drums make this band one to listen to. It's sound is something different than most music made now but, it's refreshing to hear something new and different. The almost techno-like intro they have on a few songs is really neat and once again shall I say different.

Wow, Jack White is a song writing genious along with Brendan Benson makes the vocals on this CD amazing. The lyrics I thought were well written and flowed nicely. To me it all sounded great. The lyrics are indeed simple but, they make their point.
Overall Impression — 10
Gosh, this CD reminds me of The White Stripes only.. dare I say better. Songs that really stood out to me had to be "Steady As She Goes", "Hands", "Store Bought Bones", "Level", and "Blue Vains". I just flat out love this album it'll problay be one of my most listened CD's ever. If this was stolen, I would have to hunt down whoever stole it and teach them a lesson, then just to show them that they will never win I'll buy another 10 copies of this CD.
