Album Review: The Dead Weather - Sea Of Cowards

Wednesday 12th May, 2010 10:27AM

Sea of Cowards sounds like a bar fight. Each song is taut, muscular and scorching. Harnessing the raw intensity of the band - that was evident on Horehound's 'Bone House' - The Dead Weather launch upon a blistering thirty-five minute assault. Jack White has more of a vocal presence on this record, and on 'Blue Blood Blues' he sings 'Shake your lips at the door woman, shake your hips like battleships!' Alison Mosshart's vocals sound more whiskey-soaked and tobacco-weathered than ever - and it has an electrifying effect. Any restraint she has when performing in The Kills is utterly unleashed, and her savage mandate seems to be that listeners 'hustle and cuss' for the record's duration.
