The Raconteurs - Consolers Of The Lonely

This release came to a surprise to me, it really snuck out of the industry without much push or hype, but I guess that was Jack White's plan. Anyway haven't listened to much of it, as I was severely disappointed with the "super groups" first release, which was basically a bland rock n roll album that some kid with a 80's muscle car would listen to. Actually to say I was disappointed is an understatement,the music from Broken Boy Soldiers was something you'd expect from a local bar-fly band. Anyways let me know what you think, upon my first quick listens it sounds better than its predecessor.
