More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks - Past, Present and Possibly Future

Ok, so roughly six months ago, I made up a list of ten things that I was hoping would come to pass in the year 2009. And since 2009 is half-over, I figured that now would be a good time to revisit that list and see how much of what I wished for has come to pass. ... »»

More Reasons Why Being Deaf Sucks/Rocks - The Resolution Recap

In February 2007, I set out on a mission; devote a week each to fifty-two albums that somehow got lost in the shuffle after I purchased them. I figured that by putting them in heavy rotation for seven days it would atone for the years of neglect they'd suffered. And here we are, a year and two months later and I'm finally done. I actually finished listening to the last album on the list a month ago, but somewhere along the line I'd gotten behind on the write-ups—a month behind. Still, when that last day rolled around I was pretty happy to clear that final album from my iPod. All in all, I think the project was a success. There were a few albums in my collection that were, up to that point, there just for show. But now I can not only say "that album sucks/rocks" but I can also suggest tracks that a person may enjoy. »»

MGF Reviews The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely

The Raconteurs - Consolers of Lonely Warner Brothers (3/25/08) Rock / Blues Let's call it, for now and perpetuity: It looks like The Raconteurs are going to replace The White Stripes as Jack White's primary outlet of creativity. While no serious rumors of a Jack & Meg split are swirling, no one pours this much effort into a mere "side project". Consolers of the Lonely is an early contender for Album of the Year, and considering the short amount of time it traveled from their synapses to our eardrums, it clearly comes from some other planet. This record shows that Jack's retro fixation isn't a gimmick or post-ironic drag; he's making music that is informed by all the best from the '60s and '70s and could still stand alone next to all its influences. Having a group of fellow retro geeks in Brendan Benson, Patrick Keeler and Jack Lawrence (the last two of the Greenhornes) gives Jack's brilliant musical autism a focus, and the backing of a full band shows how well White's mind functions when someone else is throwing ideas at him. It feels like treason for a die-hard White Stripes fan like myself to say so, but Jack White may have found his true calling with The Raconteurs. The bitterness and tension that permeated the last White Stripes record, Icky Thump, shows up again on the first few tracks of Consolers of the Lonely. The title track kicks things off with a laundry list of complaints, culminating with the chorus of "I'm bored to tears". The time signature sputters and lurches at different speeds all through this song, but it's never jarring. The breakdown at the end features some insane bass and guitar dueling that shows the Racs are all about chops, and they sound like the aural equivalent of a speed binge. "Consolers of the Lonely" launches headfirst into the first single, "Salute Your Solution", and the pace never cools off from there. No question at all that this song was birthed from Dee-troit natives, because it's pure Moblow garage trash that grabs hold quick and don't say please (see requisite pissy bitterness in the lyrics: "I got what I got just to spite you"). »»
