Everybody go buy it. Restore my faith in the music board by not letting this sink to the bottom.

No shit! That swing-ish section in the middle? Tight as hell.

Anybody that knows my taste in music should know this record is a total wet dream for me.

Fantastic, too. Jack's voice sounds different. In a good, way, though. High On A Mountain Top is great. Family Tree is 100% Loretta. That stands with all those other tough bitch songs she's done quite well. Great stuff. Women's Prison sounds just like 10 other Johnny Cash songs but its still really good. Yeah.

yeah. i've never heard a single song by her before and am not making any claims to knowing my shit about country, but this is on a higher level of music in general. i thought jack white was good at producing grimy garage... the fact that he made his best albums on 8-track recorders and then produced this is mind-blowing.
