Stand outs for me are:
Help me Stranger
Bored and Razed
Don't Bother me
Sunday driver
Live a Lie
Thoughts and Prayers

Edit: What's Yours is mine sounds like a Dead Weather cut to me.

I thought that about WYIM, too!  But it's even better as a Racs song.

For those daring souls who feel like pulling the lenticular cover off their Vault variant, there is a very special, Beatle-y surprise...

 

What is it? Is it that photo on yor blog?

Yup.  Variety caught on and wrote about it, too-- https://variety.com/...ody-1203251055/

Very cool. Now what do to when the Vault-LP finally gets here?

 

On another note, does anyone else think that "Shine A Light On Me" sounds a lot like Blunderbuss-era Jack White solo stuff? I find it funny that they specifically state in interviews that both Jack and Brendan thought this song had a Raconteurs vibe to it...

Yeah. That has been mentioned here, and it was one of the songs descarted for one of Jack solo albums. 

 

It reminds me a lot of Pink Floyd in the beginning, also.

Oh nice! Where abouts are you? I'm North East. Having my first listen at work (via Spotify) on my crap headphones. Probably not the best way to listen.

Middlesbrough, but my friend in Newcastle hadn't had hers on Friday. So annoyed I missed out on the white version, it seems to have sold out super quick -  my local shop's all went on pre-order. Reflex in Newcastle completely sold out of all their copies over the weekend too!

Jack did a track-by-track playlist of the album for Pandora, then Pandora pissed me off by allowing me to download it onto my phone but not onto my PC so I recorded Jack's spoken bits. It's 30 seconds or less for each song, but some good stuff.  Here, enjoy, link is good until July 3rd but I'm happy to upload again for anyone who wants it--  https://we.tl/t-UXTKk7Wupf

Fuck cell phone culture.

Man, I hope the CD arrives in the mail soon.  You'd think for genuine fans of an artist, who spend a good chunk of cash on concert tickets, they'd send those out a day or two before the street date, so they actually arrive no more than a few days after said date.

 

Oh well, oh well.  Oh well.
