Review: Blunderbuss by Jack White

"Blunderbuss" by Jack WhiteJack White’s done many things in his musical lifetime, and now he’s gone solo, something seems missing. Not that I’m dismissing Blunderbuss outright: it’s a fun romp through the former Stripe’s many influences, from 60s blues to 70s garage rock and everything in between. The best bit is White’s oozing confidence in every track; he’s doing the very thing I wanted Alabama Shakes to do – sound like they’re really enjoying themselves. While I admit I’m looking for more “Sixteen Saltines”-like rocking, standout tracks “Hip (Eponymous) Poor Boy”, “Missing Pieces” and his cover of “I’m Shakin'” made me forget that he’s not going to stomp his feet any time soon… but hopefully soon. | 4/5
