Produced by Jack White and recorded at his own Third Man Studio in Nashville, Blunderbuss has been described by White as "an album I couldn't have released until now. I've put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas."

Sound quality is outstanding for a multitrack recording with punchy lows, extended highs (not ear-shredding), and immediate sounding mid-range frequencies. No ridiculous over-use of compression here so it has extended dynamic range (not all sounds loud and in your face at all times). With a nice mix that showcases both acoustic and amplified instruments and places vocals just right. Good stereo separation, and ambiance (seems to be both artificial and natural). Kudos to the engineers and the producer. The vinyl is beautifully pressed and is very quiet. With exemplary quality control. This is a good example of why vinyl lovers prefer vinyl.
Packaging is absolutely top notch: great photography and layout, quality printing on nice cardstock, a gatefold presentation even with just one record, a black paper plastic lined sleeve (appears to be anti-static plastic), a separate folding lyric sheet, and a download card is included. Jack is offering a premium product to entice people to splurge on a superior format and I certainly appreciate it.
Needless to say, this record is getting alot of repeat play & should be in all Rock collections.
I look forward to more solo releases from Jack White, this one is a brilliant way to start!
But then I punched Jack White into YouTube and there were 4 full concerts of them performing songs from Blunderbuss. At a time when it seems that everyone is protecting their concerts Jack White changed things up and put quality produced concerts (one by Gary Oldman) for free.
And each concert there is nothing that feels like any of the other concerts though performed in the period of time. Even sings the same songs differently at different concerts. He's able to pull this off by having 2 bands backing him up - a all female group called the Peacocks and a all male group called the Buzzards. Plus he rarely even takes a break to catch his breath between songs. He's amazing!
If those that watch any of his concerts and don't pick up the songs I'd be very surprised. I know I was "awakened" to a incredible talent and have bought just about every CD and/or song he's affiliated with through Amazon. Grab the album - you won't be disappointed.

And that's what this record has, whether he succeeds or fails, a real musicality remains regardless... even on songs you might not like, there's something to enjoy... a solo, a keys riff, a bass line... something that makes you listen again. And it has a real sense of expression and fun...
It's a brilliant brilliant record. A brilliant artistic snap shot of man in transition and feeling a new found freedom to create.
