The 2006 debut LP from the Raconteurs, "Broken Boy Soldiers," welcomed fans to the band and featured canonical classics such as "Blue Veins," "Hands," and the anthemic "Steady, As She Goes." The album marked Jack White's post-White Stripes era and saw him join forces with songwriting partner Brendan Benson. The result was electric, with "Steady As She Goes" evoking the White Stripes' prime and other tracks showcasing artistic opportunities unlocked by having more than two band members. Garage rock fans looking for something new would do well to check it out.
