Thats some of the best sound I've ever heard from a late night show. Strong.

Any Radiohead tattoo is the worst Radiohead tattoo.

Fair enough, Dick Litman, on my first point.

A few takeaways of my own 1. Long sustained barely in tunes notes can easily fool bloggers into thinking someone is a talented singer 2. I wish that goofy bass sound was as even half as awesome as the bass players shirt 3. I never knew that Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana had a boring lovechild 4. I never again need to wonder if Wavves is something I'd be into.

I dont mean to be an a-hole, but *UGH*, this article is so poorly written. I almost don't even know what this is saying, until going to the Soundcloud page and reading the very concise explanation of the project. And why do Albini and Amanda Palmer even need to be mentioned? The song however, is beautiful, and makes me very excited for 7 more new tunes from one of the best songwriters living today.

Arguably the thickest heavy guitar tone I have ever heard on a late night TV/SNL appearance.

People still care about this band? I liked them when they were Paul Simon's backing band on "Graceland", but after that it just got old.

He should just rerelease the Zwan record as a S.P. record. Its the best thing he did that hardly anyone heard.

The sound here is a million times better than when Jack was on SNL, which is great for Colbert and sad for SNL.

I was just about to say the same thing. What a great way to pay tribute to one of the best drummers and vocalist to ever play rock and roll, right? I'm guessing the dude who wrote this had to youtube "Levon Helm" and "The Band" when he got asked to cover the story.

Bands still use myspace? Or is it just you and your Charlie Sheen cover band on there, all alone? And BTW, you are ruining Back To The Future by using that quote as your album title.

Jack has played custom Gretsch models in every project he has done outside of The White Stripes, and even seemed to force his bandmates in The Dead Weather to do the same for their album/live shows. Allison Mosshart had a rectangular Bo Diddley style model, Dean Fertita had a big old hollow body and the other Jack had a matching hollow body bass, all of them white with gold appointments. AND, Mr. White played a matching Gretsch drum kit as well. First Act Guitars, on the other hand, run the gamut from $75 made-somehwere-in-Asia acoustic guitars, to slightly less cheap Paul Westerberg endorsed model, to the hand made in the USA custom models that all the metal bands seem to endorse these days. The latter being probably equal in build and sound quality to a custom Gretsch. Yes I am a gear nerd. Its something I'm struggling to overcome.

Brief Analysis of SNL's "Bad Sound" Pros: At around 2:08, Jack kicks into one of the most gnarly guitar sounds ever on SNL. Cons: There may as well have been just Jack, the organ dude and the drummer on stage. Upright, fiddle and mando were non existent. Conclusion: While I agree that Bon Iver and The Black Keys sounded fairly balanced, the second song was a failure. A good sound engineer can achieve the artist's desire to put his signature wooly guitar tone on display, as well as serve the intended instrumental balance of the song.

It'd be nice to have a jam room like that. It would also be nice to have James Mercer's melodic sensibility.

The single is great, but the rest of it sounds like more of a joke than the Coldplay cover they did.
