The Raconteurs released the completely Unpromoted album, "Consolers Of The Lonely ", on March 25th, 2008. This highly irregular method of bypassing critics and getting the music straight to the fans is the word that I would use to describe the album itself, Genius.
"Consolers of the Lonely" opens up with a song of the same title (Minus the "S"). It becomes almost immediately apparent that you are going to be taken for a spin with this wild ride of randomly planned time changes, uniquely performed wah-wah guitar, and an ending concept song that will blow even the most analytical critics away.
The Album continues to bring more interesting work to the table, doing one of the most superb jobs on a slow song that I have ever heard in You Don't Understand Me.

"Consolers Of The Lonely" overshoots The Raconteurs last album Broken Boy Soldiers by far. With almost every song on the album being a hit, the Money-Value exchange is unbelievable.
With only the exception of the "just slightly not as good as the others" Pull This Blanket Off, the album brings only the highest quality tunes to the table. This was that "the album gives a great taste of what is to come from the Raconteurs in the future" I was talking about in the Last Review.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
