Mr Furious Heartily Recommends...

The Raconteurs "Old Enough"


Entertaining enough as a music video, but I really think this song is the best single—by anyone I've heard—in years. At least back to My Doorbell. The best part? I love the organ. The keys are the unsung hero on this second Raconteurs album—promote that guy to full band member status already.

As if I hadn't made this clear by now—Buy. This. Album.

"Old Enough" is great.

Of course, so is "Switch & The Spur." And then there's also "Salute Your Solution."

Man, I love this album.

Yep, its an awesome awesome album. Rickey approves.

I was down on the last Stripes album, and when I first threw this in the player, I was like "Shit! Too much like Icky Thump, and not enough Brendan Benson."

It didn't take long for me to grow past that. It's even better than the first album—and I didn't think that was possible.

I'm into "Attention" these days...

Totally agree in regard to the first album. At first this one didn't come close . . . but now it's opposite.
