Boarding House Reach
Jack’s back! It’s his third solo album and his first in almost four years. Doesn’t seem that long does it? But then he does collaborate on nearly every song ever written.
Boarding House Reach was conceived in an apartment in Tennessee where he locked himself away and recorded on old school equipment. Some of the tracks sound as though he needed to get out more during this time – but in a good way.
He’s managed to come up with a dirty rock ‘n’ roll sound mixed up with electro-beats and, as always, heavy on the vocals.
The difference between tracks like ‘Over and Over and Over’ and ‘Connected by Love’ is huge and yet you can still tell it’s all part of the same work. ‘Corporation’ is instrument-heavy and full of anger but compelling listening.
Honestly Boarding House Reach is an experience in listening. It takes you through so many different musical genres that by the end of the album you feel like you’ve had more than your money’s worth.
