Help Us Stranger arrives 11 years after Consolers and finds White at a very different place in his career from when the band first started. Hes created what can only be described as a musical empire of record labels, pressing plants and, not incidentally, a bustling solo career that included 2018s Boarding House Reach. Theres but one reason to explain the return of the Raconteurs after such a lengthy absence: it appears Jack White is ready to have some fun again. From the first notes of opener Bored and Razed, its clear that the mood on Help Us Stranger is an overwhelmingly playful one. You can sense the giddiness on Razed, where frenzied guitars carry the moment and the bands metropolitan muse, Detroit, gets an early shout-out. The tracks tongue-in-cheek title further speaks to the notion that while White and company arent positing that these songs should be taken as jokes, theres no need to be too serious about them either. Its probably safe to presume that most reviews of this record will make a special point of highlighting the contributions of Benson. Though hell never have the top echelon fame of his bandmate, Benson is just as integral to the Raconteurs as White. Not only does his presence serve as a foil for some of Whites more indulgent tendencies (look no further than the contrast between Help Us and Whites sprawling Boarding House for additional proof), but Bensons affinity for more melodic, pop-adjacent tunes gives the Raconteurs an added bit of sparkle.
