Jack's Back! And he's causing trouble again! Since going solo he's beaten an unpredictable path and Boarding House Reach has its fair share of un-Jack moments.
BUT there's also lots to love about this album-from the wonky synth line that kicks off album opener Connected By Love or R & B hotshot Why Walk A Dog? There are traces of funk, soul, gospel and (gasp!) pop all over this album-but it's also rooted in blues rock. Respect Commander is a prime example of White Stripes era freakout-ery.
All in all Boarding House Reach is one hell of a ride. Jack's not exactly ripped up the rule book here, but he has added another chapter to his ever-interesting career.
