    They play compulsively listenable '60s garage rock draped in black lace and a sneer. Whatever they don't offer in originality, they make up for in commitment.

    Not to give the Belles short shrift (they play with skilled abandon), but the record sounds like White... straight-ahead crunching blues-based guitar hooks that sound as if they were ripped from Zeppelin II, staccato bursts of noise, oceans of feedback, driving back beats and howled vocals.

    This pet project of Jack White uses all the clich├ęs in spades on their self-titled release, The Black Belles.

    The pervading campiness of the music trumps any sort of real emotion that might be hidden underneath that ghostly-white group exterior.
