JACK WHITE "Lazaretto"

Jack White

After his restrained solo debut "Blunderbuss" Jack White finally shows himself in all the splendour of his ingenuity. The sound world of "Lazaretto" is deeply rooted in the seventies. Blues rock bands like the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin or Cream have been godfathers, but also the suspended Memphis Blues has left its mark. Every now and then the playful brilliance of White flashes up, but needle-sharp guitar provocations like with the White Stripes clamp the mature bard.
