amazing watching people freak out negatively over the new Black Keys single and freak out positively over Jack White’s new single

Subjective opinions aside, one group is actually exploring new (for them) sounds while sticking to their established aesthetic of 60s styles and production equipment,…

Guess you didn’t hear Get Behind Met Satan or the many songs Jack never released as singles. The quieter songs. The country-tinged and melodic songs. Guess you didn’t pay much attention to his lyrics either, many of which are quite beautiful and incisive. The new Black Keys song sounds like Franz Ferdinand. 

The album Meg White wrote? Nah, I didn’t include it for a reason.

If you were trying to diss the Black Keys you might not want to start by comparing them to a quality band.

As for Jack’s lyrical talent, I’d say he’s decent but not necessarily outstanding. Him and Dan are probably even in that regard.

I don’t know if you’re being facetious or not, it’s hard to tell over the net, but Meg White didn’t write that album. Maybe lyrics aren’t necessarily appealing to you since you’re a guy, but songs like I’m Finding it Harder to Be a Gentleman and The Denial Twist exhibit a real knack for word play and witticism. There are songs of his that convey so much with such simplicity. I find the line “I’m proud to be you” from I’m Slowly Turning Into You incredibly moving. That is a beautiful thing to say to a person, but the whole song is kind of backhanded which again displays his knack for wit. It’s apparent to me you’re more into guitar heroics than affective songwriting or else you would not have mentioned John Mayer. He may be a great player, but he has no soul. He makes some of the most insipid, passionless music I’ve ever heard. Jack wears his heart on his sleeve. His stuff is visceral. I would much rather hear an imperfect piece of music played with passion and vitality than perfect music played by the book. Also, I wish people would quit calling Jack a bluesman even though he is obviously incredibly fond of and inspired by the blues. I think of Jack as Americana. His music ranges from straight up rock, garage rock, folk, country, bluegrass, pop, some punk, and yes blues rock. 

The Black Keys comparison to Franz Ferdinand was made because, in my opinion, it is much more of a compliment to be compared to artists from the past than contemporary artists. When current artists make music that sounds like other current artists it seems like they are capitalizing on their sound.

I’d like to add: I wish Jack would get more recognition for his talents as a lyricist and vocalist than his ability to produce a badass riff with his whammy pedal. I think Jack’s guitar playing is pretty thrilling, but there is so much more to him and his music than guitar hero stuff. If you were to judge Jack’s output based on all of the singles he has released I can see why you might think he lacks range, but he has so many songs in his repertoire that have nothing to do with riffs.

You made a tiny copy of Scarlett and Henry’s hand prints too? That’s kind of weird.
