The Denial Twist
Label: XL Recordings
So long, guitar solos; hello, piano and marimba! Not that it makes a difference to Jack White: his role as spastic preacher man is no less explosive. The hard-hitting, piano-driven soul of tracks like "The Denial Twist" and "My Doorbell" propels this album, along with some desolate pop and Zeppelin-style blowouts.
