The Dead Weather, Dodge and Burn (Third Man Records) 

Eh, I don’t mind this. Jack White still seems to have an honest-to-God jones for wacky pseudo-Hendrix 1960s-delica (and for the stripped-down bass-less sounds of White Stripes, to judge by opening track “I Feel Love [Every Million Miles]”), and yes, it took him three rock-star-configuration albums to find the right stride, but Dodge and Burn is, no argument, a decent conceptual acid rock LP. The subtly dissimilar feel between “Million Miles” and its follow-up track, the “These Eyes”-remindful “Buzzkill(er),” should be enough to lure stubborn listeners of antiquated Zeppelin-age hard rock from their safety zones — OK, let’s say if any album could accomplish such a thing, it’d have to be something very much like this. Singer Alison Mosshart must wonder aloud to the heavens every day why she was chosen to be the Sheila E to Jack’s Prince, but for unapproachable rockout-ness, she’s completely there this time.
