Album Review
Rafe McBride
Reviewed 2009-04-07
Straight-ahead Rock’n’Roll with some southern / bluegrass flavor. This CD is a ‘single’ off the Raconteurs latest album (Consolers of the Lonely), with Jack White on guitars. They end up sounding a lot like Bluegrassy Led Zeppelin in spots. FCC CLEAN

1) Rock with some Slide guitar, banjo, sounds a Lot like Zeppelin
2) More of a bluegrass spin on track 1
3) Bluegrass flavored rock with Ricky Skaggs on mandolin and some female vocals
4) Live “unplugged” version of you don’t understand me
5) Sounds a lot like Mott the Hooplesque 70s rock
