The Raconteurs: Consolers of the Lonely

It’s easy to quantify this as my top album of 2008 by looking at its play count in my iTunes library (70+ at the last look, although it’s a somewhat unfair metric for those albums released later in the year). Even better than their debut in 2006 this album contains blistering guitars and vocals from both Jack White and Brendan Benson not to mention the solid rhythm section of “little” Jack Lawrence’s thundering bass and Patrick Keeler’s sturdy drumming. I had started listing and describing the standout tracks but realised the review was going to be too long as I would have to include almost all the tracks.
