The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely. What a delight this album is! While not being a particular fan of The White Stripes or any of Jack Whites previous work, I picked this album up on a whim one day at the Library, and it has certainly changed the way I listen to music.

You see, I am one who takes my music very seriously, and I would rather have a huge 70-minute opus of an album that also takes itself and the listener seriously and crams your head with complicated riffs, deep lyrics and dark melodies. "Consolers of the Lonely" proves to me that great music can made with at least part of your tongue in your cheek. Not that this isn't a well though-out and meticulously crafted album; it is on every level. But it is refreshing to hear 4 men making incredible catchy rock music and having so much fun doing it.

White's influence is heard quite heavily throughout the album in the songwriting and guitar work, but I was pleasantly surprised that he had not just hijacked a band for his own purposes and taken over. This feels very much like a full band - the bass kicks butt, the drums are tight and thoughtful, and the other vocalist sings most of the album and does a fantastic job doing it. So if you don't like Jack White's other work, don't let that dissuade you - this is a very well balanced and thought-through album. There is a perfect number of kick-your-face rock songs ("Consoler of the Lonely", "Five on the Five", "Hold Up") mixed in with the mid-tempo rockers and a couple of great ballads. Overall, the album has a southern feel to it, and honestly the album cover feels perfect for the music. Overall, a very impressive and just straight out fun album; wish they would make another! 4.5/5
