♠   Produced by Jack White and recorded at his own Third Man Studio in Nashville, Blunderbuss has been described by White as “an album I couldn’t have released until now. I’ve put off making records under my own name for a long time but these songs feel like they could only be presented under my name. These songs were written from scratch, had nothing to do with anyone or anything else but my own expression, my own colors on my own canvas.”REVIEW
BY ROB SHEFFIELD April 24, 2012;  Score: ****½
•    On the excellent single “Love Interruption,” Jack White sings, “I want love to roll me over slowly/Stick a knife inside me/And twist it all around.” Ask and ye shall receive, Jack. By the end of Blunderbuss, the guy has knives sticking out of his heart like peacock feathers, yet he's hungry for more punishment. Blunderbuss is his first solo album; it’s also his most expansive and masterful record since the White Stripes' 2003 classic, Elephant, full of brilliant songs about how love tears your body and soul to shreds, slams your fingers in the door, grinds your face in the dirt.
•    Until now, White has always preferred to slip into the guise of a band, with other musicians as props for the movie he’s making in his head. That can mean the one–of–the–boys camara–derie of the Raconteurs, but this mama–loving Catholic boy’s favorite trick is turning women into rock goddesses: Meg White, Alison Mosshart, Alicia Keys, even Loretta Lynn. White knows how to make women feel like stars, whether it's the ladies in his bands, the ones he sings his tortured love songs to, or the ones in the audience.
•    But on Blunderbuss, the star is him, with a mostly female gang of musicians. The Nashville cats here are real ballers, with Autolux’s Carla Azar on drums behind Brooke Waggoner’s churchy piano, Olivia Jean's guitar, Bryn Davies’ upright bass and Ghana–born singer Ruby Amanfu. And to add to the overall mind–freak effect, the backup chorus on some of these love–ravaged songs includes his ex–wife Karen Elson, less than a year after the couple celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary by throwing themselves a raging divorce party.
•    White’s cohorts on Blunderbuss have the muscle to bring all his wildest musical ideas to life. There’s one vintage R&B cover, the 1960 Little Willie John classic “I’m Shakin’.” The other songs are all over the map, from the ace hippie funk of “Trash Tongue Talker” to the country soul of “Blunderbuss.” “Missing Pieces”  and  “Take Me With You When You Go” come on like hairy British prog–folk, complete with archaic time signatures; it makes you wonder if White has been studying Traffic circa John Barleycorn Must Die.
•    There are plenty of made–in–Nashville flourishes — fiddle, mandolin, pedal steel. White mostly strums acoustic, occasionally going electric for noise–splutter solos. But he power–riffs the Seventies stoner boogie “Sixteen Saltines,” his loudest and funniest tribute to the destructive force of passion and the healing power of overcranked guitars. “Spike heels make a hole in a lifeboat” — that could be White’s epitaph.
•    Yet through all the heartbreak, he remains a mystery man, as if Don Draper went to that Rolling Stones show on Mad Men and ended up jamming with the band. White has the Midwest con-man reserve of Draper, along with the flamboyant–yet–unknowable flash of Jagger. So Blunderbuss gets stranger and more fascinating the closer you listen. It doesn’t give up any of the man’s secrets. And make no mistake: That’s exactly how Jack White wants it. •    http://www.rollingstone.com/Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Allmusic.com
•    Blunderbuss is the debut album by Jack White, released on April 23, 2012 through White’s own label Third Man Records in association with XL Recordings and Columbia Records. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album received Grammy Award nominations for Album of the Year and Best Rock Album at the 2013 Grammy Awards, while the single “Freedom at 21” was nominated for Best Rock Song. The single “I’m Shakin” was nominated for Best Rock Performance at 2014 Grammy Awards.
•    Jack White leaves such an indelible stamp on any project he touches that a solo album from him almost seems unnecessary: nobody has ever told him what to do. He’s a rock & roll auteur, bending other artists to fit his will, leading bands even when he’s purportedly no more than a drummer, always enjoying dictating the fashion by placing restrictions on himself. And so it is on Blunderbuss, his first official solo album, arriving five years after the White Stripes’ last but seeming much sooner given White’s constant flurry of activity with the Raconteurs, Dead Weather, Third Man Records, and countless productions. Here, he’s once again placed restrictions on himself but they’re not quite as clearly defined as they’ve been in the past, as when he’s gotten great dividends by working with a limited palette. All the restrictions are entirely of a comforting variety: he’s abandoned the primitivism of the White Stripes, something that came easily with Meg White bashing away on the drums, and has chosen a quieter, polished route, rotating in different musicians for different tracks. Jack still pulls out some standards from his bag of tricks — clenched blues explosions, squealing guitars, and a cool breeze of electric piano — but musicians matter and this bunch of pro players tightens and softens his attack (sometimes to its detriment, as on a clumsy cabaret version of Little Willie John’s “I’m Shakin’”). When Blunderbuss gets furious, it’s hard not to miss the chaos Meg brought to the Stripes — with her at the drums, “Sixteen Saltines” would fly off the rails — but it’s a mistake to think of this album as a professionally produced White Stripes record as it relies as heavily on ideas White explored on his handful of old–timey acoustic cuts and the '70s guitar rock of the Raconteurs. If it resembles any Stripes album it’s Get Behind Me Satan, the dark, odd 2005 set written in the wake of a breakup and filled with songs of paranoia and recrimination. This too is a divorce album with every song concerning love gone wrong, yet it’s easy to ignore all the pain roiling underneath because Blunderbuss plays so sweetly, its melodies easing into memory and its surface warm and pleasant. •    Contradictions are nothing new for Jack White but he’s never been as emotionally direct as he is here, nor has he been as musically evasive, and that dichotomy makes Blunderbuss a record that only seems richer with increased exposure.Billboard Albums
