Album Review: Jack White - Fear of the Dawn

Hey all, got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!

It is of Jack White's newest album Fear of the Dawn

It is no secret RtBE are super fans of Mr. White and eat up everything he does.  Sometimes we eat it up too fast as we over-hyped the exciting, yet flawed, Boarding House Reach. This new album is a super charged version of those sounds. On the first few spins it was not working to these ears at all, but the more it spun, the more it sunk in and the better it felt. 

It has issues for certain, but we shall see if it improves as we listen even more. The problem with reviewing in general is that you have limited time to listen, absorb and write opinions that are captured in digital amber. The 9 stars Boarding House Reach originally received would probably be 6 or 7 if we went back and reviewed it today, but the creative explosions like "Connected By Love" and "Over and Over and Over" just blew us away in the moment. 

There are no great songs up tot that level on this new album but the overall tone and feeling is probably stronger than BHR. The highs aren't as high but it is more consistent, does that make it better? You be the judge. 

Support the artist, buy the album, read the review and peep some video below:
