Jack White - Boarding House Reach - March 23rd 2018

Jack is one of few artists I follow anymore. I’ll be getting this for sure. Sort of thinking of going for the Third Man Vault Exclusive.

I have a third man subscription, and while this one looks a little light, I think overall they are worth it.

The Q1 2018 Subscription will be the only non-standard version of the album released.

I subscribed to the Vault for a couple years or so pretty consistently but have mostly stopped. The last one I got was the Pearl Jam one. I wish there was a bit more time for this one (cut off is January 31st) but I might try to get it.

I also see there’s a list of tour dates up. I haven’t seen him live yet and would like to so I might try to go to the Minneapolis show.

Think I'll pick up a concert ticket and just upgrade to the standard vinyl. Other than the demo 7", the vault package doesn't seem incredible (for $60).

Yeah the vault packages are kind of hit and miss. The single is the main draw for this one. Alternate cover is okay and the tri-colored vinyl is kinda cool but it’s nothing new. There’s also the early opportunity for tickets I guess. I don’t really care about the coin or pictures.

Re: Jack White - Boarding House Reach - March 23rd 2018

That song wasn't good either. I have very low expectations for this album now - the only song I like out of the ones released is Connected by love.

Oh well, there's still the perfect circle album to look forward to.

Pretty mixed review here on Slant: https://www.slantmagazine.com/music/...ng-house-reach

"A postmodern assault of freaked-out sonic ataxia, it's messy, wildly uneven, and at times even close to unlistenable, but its sheer audacity makes it utterly intriguing."

Re: Jack White - Boarding House Reach - March 23rd 2018

I find Jack to be pretty consistently good in his output so it’s a bit surprising that this new album is generating mixed reactions. I’ll still grab the album and would like to see him in concert.

This album is just awful. This review sums it up nicely:

Bring back The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather.

Re: Jack White - Boarding House Reach - March 23rd 2018

Yeah, a couple listens in, and I don't like it (I liked his first two, and I really like Raconteurs and Dead Weather), but this album... this album's lame and pretty boring.

I agree with Pitchfork's review.

Spoiler:
glad I didn't pay for it - never gonna listen to it again

Re: Jack White - Boarding House Reach - March 23rd 2018

I listened to it in full once. I want to go back to it but I just have better stuff I like to hear for now, that pretty much means I'll probably never go back to it.

Re: Jack White - Boarding House Reach - March 23rd 2018

I don't know now, I went back and listened to connected by love a bunch of times - it's one of his best songs actually and gets better with multiple listens (not meaning it take multiple listens to like it, it just keeps getting better and better).

Going to try this one again soon.

Spinning the vinyl right now. I like it better than the last one, but there is a lack of melodies, it's more like a jam record. Some of the songs are really strong, some completely forgettable.

Re: Jack White - Boarding House Reach - March 23rd 2018

This is actually a good album, what most people aren't use to is having to be patient with songs by Jack White as there are actually layers to his songs this time out. You're not going to get the immediate "Fix" his songs usually provide. The problem though is that he went a bit too far out there in a lot of spots but I honestly think this is just him trying to obtain a new direction.

Give the songs on this album multiple listens, be patient with it and you just may find yourself really getting into them, This is album is definitely better than Lazaretto - the below is my personal breakdown:

The good:

01 Connected By Love
02 Why Walk a Dog?
03 Corporation
06 Ice Station Zebra
07 Over and Over and Over
09 Respect Commander
11 Get In The Mind Shaft
12 What's Done Is Done

The Ok:

10 Ezmerelda Steals The Show
13 Humoresque

The bad and un-
needed:


04 Abulia and Akrasia
05 Hypermisophoniac
08 Everything You've Ever Learned
