On the dynamic duo's last album, they pull all their tricks- the rambling Dylan-inspired poetry, the explosive guitar riffs, and the use of foreign instruments to add complexity. They also use new tricks, such as political statements, middle-eastern jams, and abstract monologues read by the band's heart and soul; Meg White. It's their best work, save Elephant, and an album everyone should own, meeting stripped down blues with experimental rock. Now for my age review.
Positive Messages: It comments on how America has shunned immigrants and on the values of true love. It also sticks up for the minority, shining light on yet another important situation.
Positive Role Models: Not bogged down by trying to sell music (mass-appeal pop), and boasting low-production rates, it is really just about the music, showing that even if you're not rich you can start a band. Jack White's beliefs also shine through without openly trying to convert anyone.
Violence: Though his delivery packs a punch, the lyrics themselves aren't openly violent. There's a mention to someone being dead, but it's far from graphic.
Sex: Unlike Common Sense noted, there is no subtle reference to orgasms; the lyric they showed is meant to be about faking your personality. There is a not so subtle reference to "being the pimp and the prostitute too", as well as a reference to a woman's period. "I got a woman who says come and watch me bleed". Other than that just love not sex.
Language: Damn is used twice, hell is used four times. No f-bombs or s-bombs though.
Consumerism: If anything Jack White is against consumerism and the system, so I give it negative marks.
Substance Consumption: Just waking up drunk on a wagon to Mexico.
