Born as a one-off collaboration between friends and tourmates, The Dead Weather has since evolved into one of the most vital and provocative bands in contemporary rock ‘n’ roll. Together Jack White, Alison Mosshart, Dean Fertita, and Jack Lawrence have created a dark magic all their own, a heady brew of melding heavy riffs, thick beats, and blues snarl with raw soul power and unrelenting sexual energy. Dodge and Burn – the band’s third album and first full-length release in five years – sees The Dead Weather pushing their creative line of attack to its very limits on ferocious tracks like “I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)” and the brutally beautiful “Buzzkill(er).”

Recorded in Nashville during breaks in each member’s ever-busy schedules, Dodge and Burn was heralded back in October 2013 as the band and Third Man Records announced an innovative long-term plan that would see a series of Dead Weather 7-inch singles released via The Vault (Third Man’s one-of-a-kind subscription mail-order service) in the year and a half leading up to the album’s 2015 release.

A strong third effort by the Alt rock super group. Alison Mosshart of The Kills exhibits surprising range here - she reminds me of no one so much as Robert Plant in late-era Zeppelin. The powerful rhythm section is right there with her, channeling psychedelic blues from 40 years ago, but Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age goes his own way on guitar, chiming in with edgy, distorted fuzz reminding you of all the noise the cool kids were into circa 1991.

So yeah, it's nothing new, but it's music that knows the entire history of rock and roll and feeds it to you in manageable doses. Probably the tightest and most confident thing this band has done together, which should come as no surprise. Independently, Jack White is coming off a couple classic solo albums, and The Kills are working on something good - I saw them preview some new material at Metro in Chicago in August, the songs rocked and Mosshart was very aggressive and assured there as well. This album seems to have caught them both at the right moment creatively to do something raw and powerful.

Billed as a Super Group, The Dead Weather feels more like a band whose members have played together since the guitar first met the drums. The Dead Weather delivers as expected on "Dodge and Burn." Read: distorted electrics courtesy of Dean Fertita (six-string) and Jack Lawrence (bass), pulsing drums via Jack White, and wailing vocals by Alison Mosshart. Third Man Records has not disappointed. I am a fan of what Jack White is doing with music, so color me biased. He cares about the craft, and this project seems to allow him the luxury of "just having fun playing."

I enjoyed both previous releases: "Horehound" and "Sea of Cowards." Those records improve listen after listen, and this record had that same energy as I first spun it last night. "Dodge and Burn" was forged in the same fires as its predecessors: bluesy, distorted, soulful, technically sound rock 'n' roll.
