Jack White, Boarding House Reach © ColumbiaThe Musical Wrap-Up closes another file as we compile the album and single reviews in one place for ‘Boarding House Reach,’ the third solo album from 12-time Grammy winner, Jack White.


Album Review

Published 3.27.18

Headline: Grammy-winning, alternative darling Jack White is wilder and more adventurous than ever on his highly-anticipated third solo album, ‘Boarding House Reach.’

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars: “Ah, what does one make of Boarding House Reach? On the positive side of things, this is White’s most adventurous, left-of-center album yet. So many years into his career, it’s impressive that he has so many tricks left up his sleeve.  Slightly less positive, yet not necessarily negative either is the fact that Boarding House Reachis ‘all over the place.’ A lack of cohesion hurts the effort a smidge, but more often than not, the eccentricity of Jack White is incredibly rewarding.”

Track Reviews


“Over and Over and Over”

Published 3.2.18 

Headline: Jack White strikes gold once more with “Over and Over and Over,” the fourth advance single from his third solo album, ‘Boarding House Reach.’

 

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars:“As previously commented regarding ‘Corporation,’ it sounds as if Jack White has become reinvigorated as a musician. ‘Over and Over and Over’ continues to up the ante in an extremely successful promo campaign for Boarding House Reach. Here, he gives another top-notch performance (pitch inconsistencies aside) filled with spunk. Early indications suggest Boarding House Reach will be among the best albums of 2018.”

“Corporation”

Published 2.8.18

Headline:Jack White continues his compelling comeback with “Corporation,” the brilliantly, chaotic third single from his forthcoming, third solo album, ‘Boarding House Reach.’

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars:“The remainder of ‘Corporation’ is nuts, which is incredibly refreshing in an age of predictability. It sounds as if Jack White has become reinvigorated as a musician – it’s a wonderful thing.  Boarding Hour Reach is on pace to be epic, judging by the advance singles.”

“Connected by Love” & “Respect Commander”

Published 1.19.18

Headline:Jack White makes a compelling comeback with “Connected by Love” and “Respect Commander,” singles from his forthcoming third solo album, ‘Boarding House Reach.’ 

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars: “Regarding both singles, Jack White sounds reinvigorated to say the least.  Lyrically, neither song is a masterwork, but musically, both have ample appeal. His forthcoming album should be intriguing.”
