Albums I’m Digging: Consolers Of The Lonely

But who is the fool, the fool or the fool that you are fooling?

That’s one of my favorite lyrics from The Raconteurs’ Consolers Of The Lonely and can be found in the song You Don’t Understand Me. (If that doesn’t remind you of another quote, click here.)

The album is definitely one of my favorites thus far in 2008, even though it does get a little soft in the 2nd half. I think it was Nol who said he liked the fact that you couldn’t really tell Jack White’s songs from Brendan Benson’s. Their first album, Broken Boy Soldiers, was exciting just because it had Jack. The new album is just good.

Right now I like The Switch and the Spur and You Don’t Understand the best, but I’m sure that will change over time.
