I resolve to cut my use of exclamation points. Really.
|I don’t think he believes me.|
Anyway, let’s do this! You chose Jack White’s Lazaretto as our first record to listen to and there couldn’t have been one much hotter (except for Weird Al’s Mandatory Fun – maybe we’ll discuss that one in the future :).
Lazaretto – Jack White’s second solo album – set the one-week vinyl sales record with 40,000 copies (the most since Billboard started keeping track of vinyl sales in 1991) and sold 138,000 copies overall in its first week. Pretty impressive nowadays, considering that Weird Al took the #1 album sales slot with 104,000 this past week.
The album seems to have generally positive reviews – even Pitchfork gave it a 7.1 (which doesn’t seem like a ringing endorsement to me, but the words favor the album.)
What did *I* think of the record? I’ll post my reaction in the comments. You’re encouraged to do the same!
