Jack White: Blunderbuss

Jack White's debut album as a solo artist comes bearing the pressure of a heap of expectation from fans of his three other bands (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs (Saboteurs in Australia) and The Dead Weather. Devotees of White who have followed him through all of his groups will proclaim this to be the best album of the year and will not acknowledge any weakness in it. Committed opponents of White will still find a lot to hate in this album as it does build upon the foundation of his work with other groups, particularly The Raconteurs and mid-career White Stripes.
