The songwriting here is brilliant. There are other live versions of this song that I prefer. But Jack White is the real deal and then some.

Others below have commentated on Jack White's voice as being... 'unique', 'borderline annoying', 'tonality and inflection' etc.

From a purist singing point of view his voice wanders all over place and that is not necessarily so bad - think Robert Smith of The Cure.

The trouble here is that JW does double tracked harmonies with his own voice and while that is common practice in the music industry production when you have a wandering voice then getting harmonies of yourself is a hit and miss affair.

Having had many years singing lessons as a boy I hear any imperfections in pitch and tone and unfortunately this song grates on my ears.

Not a fan of Jack White, who seems to think he's way better than he is. Also not a fan of this song, as it's over-repetitive, in my opinion. Just my two cents...

Those who think he's over-rated need to watch the documentary, "It Might Get Loud".  He's a musical genius, along with Jimmy Page & The Edge.  And if you like those guys, "It Might Get Loud" is mandatory!

 
VERY VERY good documentary! Worthy of viewing for sure{#Cheers}

I'm hearing some borrowed phrases from Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man"...

As with almost any vocalist of global renoun, you have to listen past surface and hear the unique inflection that makes them popular. It's nice when God given tonality, voice coaching, regional dialectic and accent and personal soul (comprised of affect, attitude, emotion...) all come together in one, but the great thing about pop is its function of promoting the central spirit fire of the worthy so we can hear it even when the lovely decorations don't all fall together as we would wish.
