I seem to be referring to the wife a lot these days (don't want people to think I actually like the woman ) but when she first heard 'Consolors of the Lonely' the Led Zep comparison was the first thing out of her mouth.

I tried to point out a few comparisons when Icky Thump was released, but Big3 got all stroppy...so I dropped the subject.

Before anyone gets the wrong idea (Big3)...I love Jack White.

Just watched Jools Holland from last night. Bon Iver was stunning and the Raconteurs were tight but I am still nonplussed. I certainly don't dislke them but if they all had long hair and added a couple of Hammond solos we would be calling them retro rock and ripping them to buggery.

It's no secret they have Led Zep influences...surprised you haven't noticed...
I never notice such things until other people point it out.

I think overall the recent album was a disappointment. I really wanted to like it but it was just simply too uninteresting and unremarkable.

People have been saying that ever since The White Stripes started.

hmm I need to listen to them more. I mostly just play the song "Level". Any recommendations for other songs by them?

Steady As She Goes
Broken Boy Soldier
Intimate Secretary
Five On The Five

The whole 'Broken Boy Soldiers' album is worth a punt though.
