The Raconteurs

The seemingly spontaneous nature of the release of their frankly tremendous second album, Consolers of the Lonely, might suggest this quartet, the brainchild of Jack White and his long-time best bud Brendan Benson, were trading in off-the-cuff sentiments. Truth be told, theirs is a scholarly, studied revision of the heady, glory-splattered corners of the rock canon with Benson and White trading big licks like Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynrd never happened. In short, a full on rock show. Woof!
