Jack White – Lazaretto

Jack White - Lazaretto

 

Lazaretto is Jack Whites second solo album since his breakup of The White Stripes. I went into this album hesitantly, as I didn’t enjoy his first album as much like I had hoped to considering I was a huge fan of The White Stripes. While Lazaretto didn’t blow me away, it also didn’t disappoint me at all. It has some amazing songs, with “I Think I Found The Culprit“, “Temporary Ground” and “Would You Fight For My Love” being the standouts. Musically, Jack bounces all over the place on this album, incorporating blues, folk, and even some country stylings. He definitely wears his influences on his sleeve, which suits me just fine. On top of being a great musician and lyricist, he is also a great salesman. Like I said earlier,  I had been disappointed by his first solo album. Even knowing that, before I even heard this album I bought Lazaretto based on the vinyl “gimmicks” alone. I’m a huge record collector, and this one was right up my alley. There are too many features to list here, but check out this link for the rundown. Thankfully, the money spent on the vinyl was money well spent for me. This will definitely be on my end of the year list, and I would encourage anyone looking for a starting point with Jack Whites solo work to start here.
