Album of the Day
Sea Of Cowards
When Jack White lost his voice at a Raconteurs show and Kills singer Alison Mosshart filled in, The Dead Weather was born. With fellow Raconteur Jack Lawrence on bass and Queens of the Stone Age axeman Dean Fertita, the quartet qualifies as an supergroup, though SEA OF COWARDS is far more unified than most all-star sets. A year on from their debut, the band's combination of classic rock power and primal blues dread is even more impressive, with some fine keyboard work sprinkled in among the raging guitars and a surer vocal balance between White and Mosshart. Featuring such standouts as “Die by the Drop,” “Blue Blood Blues” and “Hustle and Cuss,” the collection debuted at #5 on the Billboard chart and drew critical acclaim to match its commercial success. SEA OF COWARDS was released ten years ago today, and its bone-rattling intensity remains undiminished.
