Jack White, for me, is like a cake made out of some of my fave ingredients yet tastes a bit shit. I feel like I should like his work but don't, really. Even the stuff of his that I have enjoyed doesn't seem to ever pull me back to listen to again (with the exception of Broken Boy Solider - I do jam that from time to time).
Yeah so, um, not a fan really :(
He hasn't done anything interesting in a long time. All the White Stripes albums up to Elephant are great, but now he's turned himself into an industry and just churns out repetitive stuff. I like what he's done with increasing interest in rock and philanthropic stuff as well as helping to put Nashville back on the map, but musically I can't get interested in his newer stuff. It's like so well-done and tasteful, with all the right analog gear and mixing decisions, it's too well-done and comes off as mere homage. I guess you can't be both rich and still rock n' roll.
