I've been listening to the new White Stripes record for the past day or two and I like it better each time I play it through. It's definitely an album meant to be played all at once, one song after the other. It's sort of thematic and has a story arc that works really well with the music.

I've been very into piano rock lately, so the lack of guitars that others are complaining about actually suits my current mood quite nicely.

This one feels to me like maybe Meg had a bigger hand in it. There are definitely more of her vocals on this record.

I have the Cold Mountain soundtrack and also the Loretta Lynn record Jack White produced since the last White Stripes record and I hear some of both those albums lurking around the corners of this one.
