    All in all, The Party Ain't Over proves to be a bold success.

    Most artists her age would be content to release a greatest-hits compilation and wait for the checks to roll in, but Jackson's willing to let White guide her through new territory. After all, they're trying to say the same thing. They just say it a little different.

    Jackson's gritty mobile-home-park vocals elbow their way through a mix where the outcome is as much punk as it is rock and the Queen confidently executes both with unexpected exactitude.

    For "Shakin' All Over," White runs Jackson's goblin-queen croak through the analog fetishist's version of Auto-Tune, while "Rum and Coca Cola" rides the most lopsided punk-calypso groove since Kid Creole and the Coconuts.

    Gentleman Jack White does his Loretta Lynn production thing for another grand old lady. [Feb. 2011, p. 108]

    This Jack White-produced comeback album suggests there can be few septuagenarians keener on raising hell.

    The Party Ain't Over makes a great Jack White LP, but Wanda Jackson should've taken a page from Rosie Flores' Girl of the Century and roped in Jon Langford.
