    I didn't expect this album to be as good as their following albums. I thought it would be pretty basic and raw, but this album is full on great. It's as if they've been working together for years. It is raw, though - in the best of possible ways. Stripped down awesomeness. They don't use much because they don't have to. You only need the basics when you're this good at what you do. With so little, it's so nuanced - like a close up look at a Rembrandt. Is this the sexiest music ever? Quite possibly. It is primal. It taps into something universal. It reminds me a lot of Hanni El Khatib in that sense. The album does weaken a bit at the end. It just gets a little less intense and runs out of gas. But otherwise it stands as a great first album in a slew of great albums.
  • Great band

    And while Midnight Boom was good, I think this is their best so far. Definitely get this "deluxe edition" as the bonus tracks are not only great, but they flow with the rest of the album, making it feel like the "full" album. Only complaint is I liked the version of Black Rooster from the EP of the same name.

    I’m a HUGE fan of The White Stripes & Jack White. When Jack came out with a new band, The Dead Weather, I was eager to hear. I thought it was merely okay, but something intrigued me about the lead female singer, Alison Mosshart (a.k.a. VV), whom I’d never heard of before. Turns out she came from a band called The Kills which has a similar (not identical, just vaguely similar) dynamic as The White Stripes: one dude and one chick, garage rock blues, etc. I listened to this entire album and loved it. But their dynamic also reminds me of another power duo. Jamie Hince’s (a.k.a. Hotel) musical style is rather similar to one Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits fame: the bluesy guitar work somewhat, but particularly his voice. While Alison does not exactly sing like Sting, her higher range vocal compliments Jamie’s lower range much as how Sting’s does for Mark Knopfler on “Money for Nothing.” That dynamic, mixed with very raw electric guitar sounds, mixed with very cool and totally unique beats, The Kills friggen kill. If you’re into that sort of thing, download this album. (I’m not as impressed with their newest album Midnight Boom, though I really like “Sour Cherry” and “Last Day of Magic.”) I see this is considered the “Deluxe Edition” and appears to have five more songs than the non-deluxe, so definitely go with this one (especially considering as of now the price is identical). Besides, I see the reviews from the non-deluxe have a number of listener complaints that iTunes messed up the order of the songs. Don’t know if they corrected it there, but the order on this deluxe edition is spot on as far as I can tell.
