About this item

Rolling Stone (p.226) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "If you have a favorite Foghat album or if you can name a single member of Deep Purple, you will love BROKEN BOY SOLDIERS....Expectations were sky high, but the Raconteurs exceed them all."
Rolling Stone (p.106) - Ranked #28 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 50 Albums Of 2006" -- "The Raconteurs are a side project that rocks like a main dish."
Spin (p.59) - Ranked #19 in Spin's "The 40 Best Albums of 2006" -- "[T]he boys have done Jack White a world of good. Brendan Benson and the Greenhornes are just the kind of journeymen a retro visionary needs..."
Entertainment Weekly (p.74) - "[I]t's clear that the Raconteurs are bound by a love of gut-crunching classic-rock riffs....White and Benson trade vocals on most tracks, and obviously enjoy spurring each other on to see who can get the loosest..." -- Grade: B-
Q (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- [With] instantly memorable melodies and crunchy riffs....Music that's as elegant as it is raucous. Keeler and Lawrence, a soulful and punchy rhythm section, are the key here."
Q (p.124) - Ranked #13 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "Nothing could dent Jack White's second band."
Alternative Press (p.202) - "They deliver the straight-ahead rocking tunes...with a one-two punch of scrappy enthusiasm and unmatched musical proficiency."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.49) - "[A] diverse set of tightly-constructed power-pop and, given White's presence, a wild and fevered spirit abounds..."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.67) - Ranked #11 in Kerrang's "20 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "Lean, versatile and obscenely entertaining..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is truly a band recording, which perfectly blends Jack's rawness with Brendan's sweetness, all of it toughened up by the aggressive underpinning of the Greenhorne duo."
