The Dead Weather - Sea of Cowards

It certainly might get loud. Jack White isn’t afraid to crank it up, whether it’s with his beloved White Stripes, his vaunted Raconteurs or co-starring in a documentary with Jimmy Page and the Edge. The Detroit rocker’s second album with the Dead Weather, in which he sings and plays drums, not guitar, is another display of raw, primal blues-rock. Featuring Alison Mosshart’s manic lead vocals, blistering songs like “Jawbreaker,” “I’m Mad” and “Hustle and Cuss” are wickedly good, but definitely not for the faint of heart.
