The most stylistically sprawling record yet from Jack White! White's trajectory from Detroit garage-blues-punk wunderkind to Nashville record biz provocateur/
label magnate is pretty damn impressive – and he really lets his far-reaching impulses fly on Lazzaretto. Unpredictable twists and turns abound, but it's all held together by an undercurrent of pummeling, unpretentious rock and roll, with a rootsy swagger. Ever upping the ante on hella cool vinyl releases, Lazarretto is a 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with a 33 1/
3 main track list, and 2 hidden tracks beneath the center labels, one that plays at 45 and one that plays at 78. Oh, and also a hologram visual effect. We're thinking that maybe his next record will summon a genie that grants you 3 wishes. Titles include "Three Women", "Lazaretto", "Temoprary Ground", "Would You Fight For My Love?", "High Ball Stepper", "Just One Drink", "Alone In My Home", That Black Bat Licorice", "Entitlement", "I Think I Found The Culprit" and "Want And Able".
