Album Of The Week: JACK WHITE’s LAZARETTO

Jack White is a genious! His latest project is sensational, in which he brings rock together with blues, and it all feels like a mixture of what music has to offer. It’s raw, and at the same time full of instruments and amazing vocals; it’s a tour in one of music’s finest artists.

"Three Women", based on “Three Women Blues” by Blind Willie McTell, opens "Lazaretto" at full throttle, and the songs that follow only add to the magic of this album. Smart lyrics are throughout this masterpiece. In "Just One Drink" he goes "You drink water, I drink gasoline. One of us is happy, one if us is me. I love you but, honey why don’t you love me?". "Alone In My Home" is likely to appeal to the die-hard fans of The Raconteurs, such as Yours Truly. "Temporary Ground" is beautiful (what? seriously?) due to a touch of heartbreaking country music female voice by Lillie Mae Rische, and violins, of course. He even gets a bit Rolling Stone with "That Black Bat Licorice",  a track that resonates “Paint It Black” somehow.

Everything in “Lazaretto” sounds carefully thought of. The instruments, the lyrics, the vocals, all contributing to his best effort up to date. A must-have album.
