Lazaretto breaks stereotypes and textures visual and otherwise. The latest album from White takes his modern interpretation of psychedelic guitar rock paired with a soul underbelly to reveal that there’s much more behind the curtain of Jack White’s “serious” demeanor than meets the eye.
Singles rarely give reflection to a full album’s glory, and Lazaretto is full of great singles. The whole album jives with White’s ever-flowing creativity of sound textures and vocal challenges to pop culture understanding. The video for the title track attacks us with this thought. And breaks it.
