Editorial Reviews

'Sea Of Cowards' is a robust and vigorous second act, filled with primal, bone quaking rock rhythms and the same stellar urban blues and throbbing sleaze as its predecessor; but this time The Dead Weather push their sound even further, brilliantly building upon their raw chemistry to create the most vital sounding album you'll hear all year.

It hasn't been long since Jack White first announced the formation of his new side project, The Dead Weather. In 2009, after an extensive tour with The Raconteurs, Jack White brought the Kills' singer, Alison Mosshart on with "Little Jack" Lawrence on bass from the Raconteurs and Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Dean Fertita for an experimental project that would inevitably succeed thanks to Jack White's golden touch.

That summer, the band's debut album, Horehound, was released to typically stellar reviews. The Dead Weather remained hard at work for the rest of 2009 touring and even finding the time to record additional tracks. In March, the band released a new single, "Die by the Drop," giving fans the confirmation they needed that The Dead Weather would indeed be returning for another run.

A low, distorted rumble opens Sea of Cowards with White's trademark musical force. "Blue Blood Blues" is most closely reminiscent of "I Cut Like a Buffalo" from Horehound, but that is sure to do nothing but delight fans hoping The Dead Weather would continue with what works instead of try to make too many changes. Like The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather's sophomore release is even better than their already solid debut. Jack White has an impeccable ability to take a successful sound and manipulate it just enough to keep it fresh while not taking away from the aspects of the music that made it enjoyable and unique.

"Blue Blood Blues" is followed by "Hustle and Cuss," a track that lays down a great groove before Mosshart is given her first chance to shine on Sea of Cowards. There seems to be even more of a vocal timeshare on this album than their last.

I'll do my best not to repeat what other reviewers have said.

Straight up, Sea of Cowards is chalked full of some good rockin jams. I can't say that the Lyrics are ground breaking in any way, but the attitude and style in which they are delivered demands your full attention and greatly adds to the overall vibe of the record.

I was kind of disappointed that the record is only 35 minutes, it was so good that i didn't want it to end.

Sea of Cowards is an album so full of character that it stands out like no other rock album i've heard in a long time. The band does an excellent job of pooling together all their talents in to a cohesive and refreshing use of their instruments. Its about the song, and not the musician, and every part that is played creates a full bodied jam full of chunky riffs and analog lushness. The groove they lay down on these tracks is undeniable. you can't help but check your lips and the door and shake them hips like battle ships...

The Guitar work on this album is very reminiscent of the greatest Leppelin and white stripes tracks with a more rhythmic approach. The Bass lines hold down a hearty power groove that's as mean and seductive as any thing claiming to be rock music. The heavy use of analog synth/organs on this album really sets it apart (in a good way) from any other rock album i've heard. It really is one of the highlights of this album's texture for sure. And the Drums... well, the drums are so well crafted that they rock steady and never step on any toes. I don't think i'm alone in saying that there are too many drummers out there that step on every beat of every song and kind of drown out any finesse that attempts to reach your ears. Jack does an excellent job of supporting the song and not his ego.

The Dead Weather's new CD is just as you'd expect it to be; blistering Blues/Rock songs with squealing/screeching guitars, loads of distortion, and screeched/screamed vocals, all somehow coming together to make great music.

"Blue blood blues" is a perfect example (vaguely similar to "I cut like a buffalo"), it features Jack White on lead vocals. "All the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service" he snarls. "Hustle and cuss" has groovy guitars as well as deep and dirty bass with Alison Mosshart on lead vocals and aggressive call and response with White in part.

More melodic and immediate is "The difference between us" (Mosshart on vocals), while "Die by the drop" is buzzing/blistering with both sparring vocally again. "I can't hear you" is one of the calmer moments, "Jawbreaker" is bouncy fuzzy and Poppy, while The experimental "Old Mary" starts off all Catholic with parts parodying "Hail Mary"; spare repetitious lyrics, organ, baby noises, vast musical expanses, and great guitar licks.

Much heavier and messier than their debut "Horehound" and just as good.

I bought it cause I am a huge Jack White fan and I'm glad to see that it's not only a different sound than what he normally does but as a band, They are very good. I love Alison Mosshart's vocals, She kills it on this album.

I love Jack White's work. If you're deciding between this album and Horehound, I'd recommend the latter. But if you love Horehound and want to expand your library, this album is a must. It's not Jack White's best material, but it's certainly worth buying.
