RE: NME.COM REVIEWS THE NEW LIVE ALBUM

NME.com has reviewed the live album, Under Great White Northern Lights, and they sure hit the nail on the head with the below text:

"The duo's new DVD and live album makes you realise how much you miss them"

Here's the partial review:

"As (mostly) fun as The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather have been, boy does this little DVD/Live album package makes you miss The White Stripes something rotten. The beautifully shot doc follows the bandís 2007 Canadian tour, and itís a reminder that while Jack White may enjoy his less pressurised roles in his other bands, heís a shadow of the rock star thatís unleashed when itís just him and Meg. The first piece of concert footage is a thunderous version of first single ĎLetís Shake Handsí, and as Meg plays one-handed with Jack whirling wildly in front of her, it all comes flooding back: theyíre the most violent, sexiest live band of our times.

The melding of Led Zep rock glamour and the rough-and-ready spirit of the blues is, of course, at the heart of the band, and the film contrasts the full-colour theatre shows with black-and-white footage of them playing bizarre impromptu free gigs. All the best moments come from this stuff, as Jack and Meg play to passengers on a bus in Winnipeg, rock out on the back of a fishing boat on a river and do a gig in a bowling alley during which Jack pauses in the middle of one song to bowl a ball (he scores eight)."

There's more to this review. You can read it all right HERE.
