Lazaretto ($10) is everything you want from a latter-day Jack White album. Direct, catchy guitar riffs. Unexpected, eccentric touches like the eerie, theremin-esque backing vocals that underscore "Would You Fight for My Love?" A few stripped down, grainy ballads. And, of course, the fuzzy but omnipresent influence of Nashville. White has always been adept at mixing genres but it's never sounded more accomplished than on Lazaretto. Honky-tonk piano and fiddle aren't just integrated into White's garage-rock oriented style, they're all of a piece. Put this album on and you'll feel like you're racing down a dusty road on the run from the law in no time.

I can't be the only one worried about the fact that he isn't looking at the angels. Don't blink Jack!
