180-gram vinyl with copper-embossed, gatefold tip-on jackets from Stoughton. Broken Boy Soldiers is the debut album from the Raconteurs. By pairing pop songsmith Brendan Benson with hard-rocking Jack White (the White Stripes) and backing them with the crack rhythm section of Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler (both of the Greenhornes) what resulted is a completely kick-ass album. From the anthemic volley of "Steady, As She Goes" to the sing-songy crunch of "Hands" and the downright sinister slow creep of "Blue Veins" this album covers the complete range of human emotion.Broken Boy Soldiers is the first proper vinyl reissue from Third Man (both the V2 and XL versions of this LP are out-of-print) with plans to tackle the rest of t+he White Stripes and Jack White back catalog already in the works. Third Man aims for these reissues to be the definitive, go-to versions of all their titles and this issue of Broken Boy Soldiers definitely earns that distinction.
