Final Grade: B+
I really enjoyed this album, it was much different than I was expecting. That being said, I think I would've preferred what I was expecting. "Blue Orchid" really set the tone - a great opening track - and I wish that the album had more of that style from start to finish. But that's not to say that I didn't like the album, because I definitely did. I loved how they juxtiposed the soft, sweet tones with mini bits of heavy rock put in them. It gave a really cool tone to a lot of their songs. I got a little tired of the saloon feel, but that wasn't til I got to the end of the album. Overall, really good stuff from Jack and Meg White - it's unfortunate The White Stripes are no longer.
