Editorial Reviews

Jack White presents his new album Lazaretto, on Third Man Records/Columbia. Lazaretto inhabits an exciting place in White's expansive discography as the follow-up to 2012's Gold-certified international #1 Blunderbuss, and will be preceded by first single and title track "Lazaretto," to be released later this month.

Once again Jack White, lover of blues, funk, soul, and good old fashioned rock and roll, has dipped into his bag of inventiveness and has created an album more eclectic than his 2012 release "Blunderbuss." It's taken him a year and a half to make it, and if the rumors are true it is said he destroyed the original versions and started from scratch.

In interviews he has said the lyrics were inspired by old stories and writings from his 13 year old self. He said some of it was laughable, but I listened, because... it's who he is and not what he does, at least not that much. He's a truly independent artist, and rarely asks for anyone's help, unless he's recording in digital, which is NOT what he does. You DO know Jack records strictly in analog (on two old 8-track recorders), because "it just sounds more real."

Here's my 30 second gut review of each song - the album is only 39 minutes long...

01 - Three Women - 1972 called but is FINE with you re-creating their sound, fuzzy guitars and dirty soul organ grinding and all, about his love for the number one subject of every rock and roll teen boy playing his guitar - times three!

02 - Lazaretto - I like this song, not just because it's an instant guitar player's classic, but the music and lyrics are top notch and reminds us why we like Jack and his unique sound - he's everywhere on this single and it shows. From Catholic rites to Jack Chick religious tracts and several philosophers, he circles the globe in your mind.

03 - Temporary Ground - this duet with Nashville artist Lillie Mae Rische (who also play a little fiddle) takes you on a ride around the block to the country side of his world, and it's it's pretty good.

It seems to me as Jack White's career progresses he realizes more and more that he can pretty much do whatever he wants. Here on "Lazaretto" we get some of Jack White at his best with an interesting mixture of sounds that combine the garage rock blues of earlier albums with a lot more of an old time country vibe as many of the tracks feature a seemingly out of tune old-time honkey tonk piano.

Here is a breakdown of the tracks on "Lazaretto":

Three Women - A funky, bluesy tune that sees Jack showing off his guitar chops in between trying to figure out which of the three women, a blonde, a brunette and a redhead, that he wants. We all wish we had that kind of problem!

Lazaretto - A garage rock with White's famous warbly vocals matched with some excellent rocking guitar riffs. If you like you're music greazy (yes, greazy) you'll love this track.

Temporary Ground - Big change of gears for this track which sees White going into full country mode here with the help of Lillie Mae Rische on the fiddle.

Would You Fight For My Love - The track opens with a duel between piano and guitar then moves into some etherial voices before the meat of the track comes in for an honest and open White expressing how he's afraid of getting hurt in relationships.

High Ball Stepper - A fun instrumental tune that features a honky-tonk piano, fiddle and some heavily distorted guitar work.

Just One Drink - This song is 2:36 of awesome. Jack's got woman problems and he's turning to the bottle of rye, and one hell of a rocking track, to fix his problems. "You drink water and I drink gasline, one of us is happy and one of us in mean." That's rock and roll.

I confess to liking Jack White's music quite a bit. From his days in The White Stripes to side projects and now his solo records it's clear that he's a driven performer and producer who exudes a passion for music. That being said, his music rarely catches me by surprise. By now most of us, regardless of whether you enjoy his output or not, have a good idea of what he does and you either love his noisy, rock-blues sound or you don't. He's a bit of an acquired taste but I like enough of his music to consider myself a fan, even if it often feels like he does variations on the same thing most of the time. I approached Lazaretto expecting some good songs that didn't stray too far from his usual blue print. What I got instead blew me away.

Jack is in full-blown country mode here. That's not to say it's a country album but it contains so many Southern touches that it's the closest he's come to fully embracing an old-school Nashville sound on his own. He's played with it before but now it feels fully realized---and the results are excellent. The ballads are perhaps the album's brightest moments, with tracks like "Entitlement", "Want and Able" and "I Think I Found the Culprit" blending traditional country with subtle pop sensibilities. "Alone in My Home" is one of the best examples, taking a country flavor and sprinkling it with a poppy hook to straddle the line between old and new. Arguably my favorite track, "Temporary Ground", leans further toward folk. Jack throws fiddles into the mix and some female backing vocals round it out into one of the best songs he's penned in quite some time.
