The Dead Weather
"Sea of Cowards"

Jack White, discontent with ever being stagnant, welds this new ensemble together out of spare body parts and puts himself in the role of motorizing the band with his drumming.

This is the Dead Weather's second album, and I believe it is infinitely better than their first. The first wasn't bad, but I think the band just hadn't quite figured out how they could combine their musical sorcery most effectively yet.

This album is dark, sinister and is one of the hardest rocking albums of the last couple of years. Jack White's drumming is yet another opportunity to show the rest of music how it should be done.
