TheAgeOfAnalog says:

Dead Weather. Check it out.

dubnessIII says:

Dude, if you liked this record, you have to check out all his other stuff. First two solo records, the white stripes. the raconteurs, and the dead weather. I envy you for getting to experience it all for the first time.

Gus Webb says:

Maybe you should listen to the White Stripes’ De Stijl as I’d say it’s the most similar in style to Boarding House Reach of all of Jack White’s records.

Jeff K. Meyers says:

Check out The White Stripes White Blood Cells! I think it’s they’re best work(with some great Orson Welles references, especially The Union Forever, with most or all lines directly from Citizen Kane. He obviously has a great appreciation for Orson Welles, as do I(i.e. Third Man Records, etc.). A very eclectic and interesting album!

Vinyl Rewind says:

Congrats to Michael of PA for winning this week’s pick!

sam8911sk says:

Have all his other work ( love or like them ) but this album not for me ( sounds artificial or out of space outside of the female singers )

Neutral Milk Motel says:

Raconteurs are the best jack white has ever done

coolmatthew213 says:

Congratulations you have finally done a review on Boarding House Reach

In Between says:

Nice review, this is definitely one of my favourites for this year. You should definitely check out Wide Awake! by Parquet Courts, another favourite of mine.

okieboy28 says:

Anything by The Cramps or Captain Beefheart and his Magical Band, like Trout Mask Replica? Or The Cure or maybe Gish by Smashing Pumpkins?

Jeffery Jones says:

I had a hard time with this one. I am a huge fan of Jack White. The White Stripes were my first truly favorite band from the age of 13. I love The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, and his other two solo albums. This one is just so different. However, I listened to it repeatedly and it’s grown on me. It’s a fascinating record. It has some pretty interesting experiments alongside some killer tracks like “Respect Commander” and “Over and Over and Over”

Shane Semler says:

Idk, I just can’t get excited about anything Jack White has done since White Stripes. This review hasn’t changed that. This stuff you’ve played mostly irritates me. :/

Ratchetfan321 says:

You have to try his last album.

Alex Borrego says:

If none of those bands are your cup of tea, I HIGHLY recommend The Dead Weather. That’s my favorite Jack White project

Bossboyy says:

I’d recommend to listen to Elephant and De Stijl, they’re his masterpieces

Carolyn Lozan says:

Abulia and Akrasia is a spoken word by CW Stoneking, not Jack White

Blixta Toe says:

Best this year,so far

Larks' Tongues In Aspic says:

Hmm my opinion goes completely the other way. I loved White Stripes, I loved The Dead Weather, I kinda liked his last two albums too. But God this record is boriiiing. It just didn’t work for me, it sounds like it’s trying too hard to be complex and experimental but it fails at it badly. He really doesn’t find a new sound in this record, Sounds 100% like Jack White except this time songs are not really songs it’s just a mess of pieces that don’t fit together. Lots of great riffs and drum beats and I love the loose drumming style. But as a whole, None of the songs work for me. And I gave it time because I bought the record, it’s expensive and I kinda tried to force myself into liking it. But after the 6th time listening I thought ” Nope. Nope. this isn’t working for me “

Mr. Johnson says:

Thank you, I’ve been waiting for this review.

Dazlidorne Jenkins says:

I got the special edition of the album through Third Man Records’ Vault subscription. It has a different album cover that I like more and the vinyl looks black on the turntable, but if you hold it up to the light or the sun, is an amazing translucent blue.

Ryle says:


Jack Ging says:

I don’t really like it. Nearly every song has something that I like, but also something I would change that keeps it from being a good song. The only track I can say I fully love is over and over

jessy vincent says:

jack white sucks

Michael Prescott, Jr. says:

This album is a sonic masterpiece.

RizeKrispy says:

Can you please review Love by The Beatles

carlos hildebrandt says:

Great video! can you review arctic monkeys new album, would love to know what you think about it!

watch my videos says:

What about Sex & Food by Unknown Mortal Orchestra?

Dazlidorne Jenkins says:

I was upset that my album didn’t come with a digital download code, because I believe that all vinyl should come with them these days. That being said, it forced me to hook up my record player to my computer and learn how to transfer an album to my computer, edit it with Audacity and create my own mp3s. Quite the learning experience, but now I have started transferring some of my older albums to my computer now. Turntable Lab has a great guide if this interests anyone.

Эмиль Мурзагалин says:

Отличный альбом от Джека Уайта)))

Pedro henrique barbosa says:

Wide Awake! by Parquet Courts. It’s the closest you can get to a punk band sounding funky in recent years

The Germanic Language Branch says:

Nice review

Purple Python says:

I feel like it’s pretty clear he’s talking about actual dogs in the second track

“somebody mated them and took their babies away, stuck a price tag on their nose. and now you’re buying it clothes”

Down Under Vinyl says:

Ice Station Zebra is a 1968 Cold War era suspense and espionage film directed by John Sturges, starring Rock Hudson amongst others.



Crazy prayingmantis says:

I think this is a love it or hate it album.
I love odd, weird, out there music but I can’t stand this, I feel its trying too hard.

Stephen Kater says:

WoW, i have to get this if you love it that much !! It must be beautiful !!

Chip Williams says:

Humoresque was written by Al Capone to his girlfriend while he was incarcerated at Alcatraz.

Nofuture10 says:

If you’re looking to get into white stripes De Stijl is a really great album. So are the others, I started with Elephant (I stuck with only listening to it in the Jack White department for years) it’s pretty damn great too but I was really impressed with De Stijl and regretted not listening to it way sooner.

Down Under Vinyl says:

Might give this one a listen. I was a big fan of The White Stripes but not so much of his solo work. I just can’t get into it.

Kraus Chandler says:

See you switched to that Fluance back there.

Opaque Visions says:

Not a fan of Jack White, White Stripes, or Raconteurs. Blasphemy!!!

biggestfanofroger says:

Worst album I‘ve heard this year

Dave Davis says:

not into jack white . but he knows to keep it pure . old tube amp sounds , vintage cheap guitars , all analog recording process . shows to me he really cares . glad he took so long between records . like all his videos

peterpansie5 says:

If you liked this one I’d say The white stripes album that are like this the most are Get Behind Me Satan or Icky Thump in terms of pushing the boundaries of jacks music. If you are looking for the overall best white stripes album I’d say De Stijl which is imo one of the best blues albums ever

Charles McBrian says:

So damn underrated
