Jack W hite


Australian T3 - - MUSIC TO YOUR EARS -

The White Stripes now long be­hind him, Jack White sounds like a man com­pletely at ease with his own abil­i­ties. Hav­ing carved out a par­tic­u­lar sound, he doesn’t seem in­ter­ested in step­ping be­yond the lim­i­ta­tions he’s set for him­self. He knows what he’s good at and he’s com­fort­able in his niche.

Lazaretto is more slick in its pro­duc­tion than the work of White’s iconic red and white duo, but it also lacks the un­pre­dictable cre­ative spark that al­ways made them such an ex­cit­ing lis­ten. De­spite this, White re­mains one of the world’s fore­most pur­vey­ors of spiky blues and coun­try-in­fused rock. Those who’ve fol­lowed the man up to this point – like many in the T3 of­fice – will find a good deal to like here.
