50 Best Albums of 2012
Jack White, 'Blunderbuss'
White's solo debut is our first chance ever to hear him truly cut loose, unencumbered by anyone or anything other than his forked imagination. A down-home freakout recorded with a killer band in his adopted hometown of Nashville, Blunderbuss bursts with mutated Memphis soul ("Love Interruption"), crunk-Kiss swag ("Sixteen Saltines") and hippie jazz folk ("Take Me With You When You Go"). The recently divorced White uses his self-made soapbox to shout about the wages of love – and every hypocritical kiss on the record hits like a hammer.
