About this album

Broken Boy Soldiers is the debut album of The Raconteurs, released on May 15, 2006 in the United Kingdom and May 16, 2006 in the United States. The album was generally favored among critics and spawned the hit single Steady As She Goes.

Critics were generally favorable towards Broken Boy Soldiers. Rolling Stone said of the album “Expectations were sky-high, but the Raconteurs exceed them all.” People magazine gave the album three-and-a-half stars, making the album the Critic’s Choice of the week; they commented “Broken Boy Soldiers incorporates just enough weirdness to show that he (White) hasn’t completely changed his stripes. ” More conservatively, Billboard remarked “No one is breaking any ground here, and White fanatics looking for a new White Stripes record should temper their expectations. But as far as side projects go, this is as good as it gets.”

    this is the best album ever! i am like the skater girl that's totally into rock and everything, and this is my fave thing to listen to when i get home. that and i love to listen to KISS and AC/DC. I am going to the AC/DC concert on Jan. 19 but i wish it was the Raconteurs instead. AC/DC is ok i guess but it's not my favorite. my absolute fave is either Aerosmith and i love Europe. my fam is like totally into rock and we HATE rap. rap is retarded. hope no rap lovers were offended.

    A very solid album that I never get sick of. I don't know what happened to them on their new album, but this one is very creative.

    It takes about three weeks for me to catch with that album. It's not what I expected from J.White, but still it's so different and cool.
