4. Live At Electric Lady (2020)
“What makes this such a great record is that it further shows Brendan Benson to be a great song writer with an ear for a melody and combined with Jack White their initial heavy metal thrash songs reveal themselves as power pop gems.”
3. Help Us Stranger (2019)
“My favorite song is “Thoughts and Prayers”. This is a song about struggling to communicate with God and trying to make a spiritual connection. This is the most heartfelt song I have ever heard from Jack White. “Somedays I Don’t Feel Like Trying” is another song about struggling to make through life for about two and a half minutes, but the other half of the song has a positive message about hanging in there and not giving up. “Now That You’re Gone” is a break up song with great electric guitar riffs. These three songs are proof to me that Jack White is a talented song writer as well as a singer. “Live A Lie” is a song that sounds groovy. The song reminds me that the truth often hurts. This is a meaningful but rather short song. The piano playing on the song “Shine The Light On Me” makes me feel good.”

2. Broken Boy Soldiers (2006)
“Every song on “Broken Boy Soldier” is great! The songs have a British 60s feel (Beatles, Led Zeppelin)in a timeless sort of way. The CD sounds like “classic rock” and it is hard to imagine the songs are newly written.”
1. Consolers Of The Lonely (2008)
“There is energy and power in this album unlike many other bands are even willing to attempt. The opening track alone provides a perfect feel to the record. Then throughout the rest of the album that same energy balances itself out with the proper amount of relaxed musicianship. Honestly I don’t think I can really write a cohesive review of what I would like to mention. Whenever I try to think of something specific, my mind simply jumps to other things that stand out to me.”
