I would consider myself a Jack White fan and I really wanted to like the new material but god it really is awful. It took about 30 seconds of listening to Connected by Love to come to this conclusion. I'm also a little disappointed that a ticket to go see Jack White now costs $80 plus for GA. I could pay it but won't.
His last albums have been good. But this is so confusing what happened to his unique style.
For all the haters who are saying these songs are garbage, you obviously are not true Jack White fans! He is a musician first! Listen again. He is evolving and if you can’t understand that than maybe you should go play your one hit wonders playlists!
What happened to Jack?
By Wooden Cox
Hasn’t been the same since the end of the White Stripes. His last three projects have been horrible
What is he smokin?!
This is nonsense
The material just isn't strong enough...
The sound of Connected By Love seems somewhat flat and inorganic.
Maybe it's the musicians or perhaps the production either way it has lead to some wholly uninspired track. And Respect Commander is an overindulgent mess. Not really a song at all. Just terrible.
In all not as spontaneous, fresh and cohesive as his previous releases.
What is going on?
Not my taste
Another step forward in the evolution
By Old School NWA fan
He has to mix it up to keep himself from getting bored. Great songs. Video for Connected is great too
Always have to listen to something a few times b4 grading it fairly. It's very different and may take awhile to warm up to. Jack's songs are meant to be heard as a complete album. He's not really a singles guy. That being said,I hope the other songs a bit more melodic and heavier.
“Connected by crap”

Song is garbage. The other song is better but still forgettable.
