Excellent pre-release CD. Special original recipient is named on the disc. Sold by originator on EIL and bought by me. So now it is OK for someone else to buy it. Very rare one-off promo release.

United pressed this (u). Bummer. Can always count on them to make trashy noisy vinyl. Surface noise and clicks and pops.

I believe there is also another release of this album with the fist LP on orange and white half and half wax. The etching is also on the other LP (Black). My understanding is 200 were released at the original release party. I have no numbers or editions, but have seen it. Any one else more info?

Excellent work,
entering kind of a stoner rock / old kyuss meets the seventies kind of feel with this.
way less poppy than his work with the raconteurs and with way more substance.
in my opinion the
best release of Jack white's since his white stripe days,
definitely maturing and growing as a musician.
seems to be able to hold his own as a drummer and
the lead vocalist is excellent

"Horehound" is certainly one of the most innovative and refreshingly brilliant albums of 2009. After the first listen it had the same effect on me as did "Trout Mask Replica" back in 1969, "Dummy" by "Portishead" in 1994 or "The Good Ones" by "The Kills" in 2005... Total Wow.

Right from the ambient discords that swell into the delta blues swamp-punk rhythms of the opening track "60 Feet Tall" the band stamp their genius over the following ten tracks with Mosshart's vocal delivery typical of her role in The Kills, delivered like a frenetic Patti Smith or Karen Orzolek. Fertita's guitar-organ and synth work add an uneasy and spectral aura to the work, giving a kind of Korn-like edge to tracks like "3 Birds" or the inner realms of "Treat Me Like Your Mother". Lawrence, seemingly joined at the hip with White from "Raconteurs" sessions plugs the holes, where the multi-talented White fails to play three instruments at once, such as the sweeping guitar work on "Rocking Horse" that wouldn't be lost in a David Lynch movie.

Whilst Mosshart may take center stage with lyrical input on all but two of the tracks, one of which is a cover of Dylan's "New Pony", it is White who is undoubted master of this eclectic foursome. His drumming is very much in the foreground of the mix and his guitar work retains all the spirit of blues traditions, seemingly plugged into the same inspirational sources as JJ Cale and Tom Morello at once. White also produced the album throughout a series of collective songwriting sessions in early 2009 and it's faultlessly engineered by Philip J. Harvey and mixed by Vance Powell & White. The album closes with the plaintive and slow-paced gospel blues style "Will There Be Enough Water?"

My question is "How long before 3 Birds pops up in a TV ad?" This is a 5-star album from a 5-star band. Don't miss it.
