    jack white jumps the shark. 'tis bland and uneventful. doesn't come close to anything the WS have done.

  1. It's brief and even a little slight, but it's almost as much fun to listen to as it must have been to make.
  2. Like so many all-star bands before them, The Raconteurs could be one and done. But don't place the blame on this fertile and genuine debut.
  3. Nothing is really very exciting here, or very interesting.
