The Party Ain't Over
Critical Mass
Release Date: January 25, 2011
Label: Third Man/Nonesuch

by Mikael Wood

The 73-year-old rockabilly trailblazer teams with Jack White, who weirds out in a way he seemed too bashful to do on Van Lear Rose, his 2004 collabo with Loretta Lynn. For "Shakin' All Over," White runs Jackson's goblin-queen croak through the analog fetishist's version of Auto-Tune, while "Rum and Coca Cola" rides the most lopsided punk-calypso groove since Kid Creole and the Coconuts. A faithful cover of Amy Winehouse's "You Know I'm No Good" is obvious NPR bait, but even that's legitimately creepy.
