The Raconteurs

Salute Your Solution

The Raconteurs
Oddly, ‘Salute Your Solution’ is the 13th-best song on the ‘Consolers Of The Lonely’ album, and there are only 14 tracks on it. That’s not to say it’s a duffer, goodness no. Indeed, it’s a deliciously crunchy, raw slice of what oldies call “Southern-fried rock’n’roll”, let down only by Jack White’s occasional need to sing like a twat. They should have probably released ‘You Don’t Understand Me’ instead, not least because it sounds a little bit like Elton John. Release schedule mishaps notwithstanding, The Raconteurs continue, in a very real sense, to rock.
