Jack White is divisive musician. Mayo is a divisive condiment. For some people it’s the only thing that ties a sandwich together, while for others it’s a boring, expensive quest to achieve some dated form of rock-and-roll authenticity that totally overshadows its musical talent. ...Yup!
What is the sound of a bass without strings? No, that’s not a Zen mystery invented to challenge your preconceived notions of existence.
