And Dead Weather's second record, Sea Of Cowards, targets anonymous online folks. Considering the hate-on rained on Dead Weather's sucky jam-session-like premiere, Horehound, you can see why they felt stung enough to fight back. The good news is that much of that response is channelled into a much tighter effort here. Alex Denney 2010 The Dead Weather’s first album offered ammunition aplenty for those disinclined to doff their caps to Jack White’s alleged genius. Cobbled together in little more than two weeks on the back of jamming sessions with rock star chums Alison ‘The Kills’ Mosshart, Queens of the Stone Age’s Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence of White’s own Raconteurs, Horehound was a largely unlovable affair that shaded White’s ever-present Zep-ophilia with hints of voodoo hokum and – gasp – nu-metal.
If anyone thought the Dead Weather was going to be the project where Jack White let someone else take the lead, those notions end a minute and 38 seconds into Sea of Cowards opener "Blue Blood Blues", when White tears into one of his most nonsensically badass couplets ever: "Check your lips at the door, woman!/ And shake your hips like battleships!/ Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service!" It's fantastical tough-guy gibberish worthy of Bo Diddley, and it's the sort of line that only an extremely confident singer would ever attempt, let alone. And even if Sea of Cowards sounds more bashed-out than labored-over, it works. It's a heavy, snarly, physical rock album, and it feels like the work of people so secure in their ass-kicking abilities that they don't have to sweat the details.
The good thing about The Dead Weather is that they're loud, just really loud, both live and on record, you can just hear, yet they rarely loseThe good thing about The Dead Weather is that they're loud, just really loud, both live and on record, you can just hear, yet they rarely lose melody or venture into metal ( as the queens.

Too many times, supergroups are disappointing. A good example was one of the three supergroups of last year, Chickenfoot. The sound of this album is influenced by 70s hard rock, with additional blues influences and synth to keep things interesting. Songs where synth plays a vital role are "The Difference Between Us", "Gasoline", and "Looking At The Invisible Man". The obvious reason they included synth in this album is to keep things fresh and interesting. Not that the tracks would be boring without, but it is a definite perk of this album. Another element that keeps things interesting are the traces of blues spread across the album
