Jack White - Fear of the Dawn

Jack White clearly made good use of the time when live shows weren’t possible. He completed not one but two studio albums set for release this year. As he explained, he reserved the first one, “Fear of the Dawn” - our Record of the Day - for the heavy stuff while the second one (which will be released in July) is expected to show his mellower side. White likened that one to a Sunday morning album. Now that we had some time to spend with his first offering of the year, it’s clear that he wasn’t joking. It’s a ferocious, wild ride. The riffs keep coming, there’s constant twists and turns and his trademark howl is in full hysteria mode pretty much all the way through. The abundance of ideas thrown into the mix result in a manic, maybe at times a bit whacky, but always highly entertaining album. As deep into his career he is, it’s great to see that he’s still putting out music this exciting and full of life.
