Released:
Label: Warner Bros.
The Raconteurs join Radiohead and NIN in throwing their weight in front of sluggish record companies with their second album, rushing its release only a couple of weeks after its completion. It's a move that minimizes leaks but also jukes any sales-impeding critical disapproval. The latter point, however, can be put to rest: from the first skronky strut of the album's title cut to "Hold Up" and "Rich Kid Blues," it boogies, shrieks and flails with a level of down-home rock stank (the good kind) never before imagined by the super-group.
