The 1st Album Listening Club album is…

Jack White’s Lazaretto!

Most people know Jack as the former leader of The White Stripes, and he’s pretty much the god of indie lately, what with his Third Man Records studio and frequent & varied vinyl releases on his Third Man label. I know his songs fairly well, the singles at least. I loved White Blood Cells by The White Stripes. I guess I’ll hold any more comments until the discussion post.

The voting came down to the wire with the last vote cast on Sunday afternoon deciding between the two frontrunners. Here are the rankings of the 5 albums that were voted on:

  1. Jack White – Lazaretto – 7 votes (32%)
  2. Slint – Spiderland – 6 votes (27%)
  3. Mantronix – The Album – 5 votes (23%)
  4. Beachwood Sparks – Once We Were Trees – 3 votes (14%)
  5. Critters Buggin – Guest – 1 vote (5%)

I was all ready to be the tiebreaker between Jack & Slint, but a last vote put Jack over the top. I was leaning toward Slint, too, curious as to what had 6 people voting for that record (I haven’t heard it).

The album can also be found on Spotify , Rdio, Amazon, and Google Play. (No affiliate, boooo)
