What the Toll Tells

What the Toll Tells opens with a bluesy foot-stomper called "Las Cruces Jail" that sounds like Jack White's most infectious work. Two Gallants share some of the Stripes' garage-spare, lo-fi sound, but they consistently get right what the Stripes get wrong. Their often-epic-length numbers work so well because of singer Adam Stephens' narrative passages that, in their folk-tinged Delta blues, bear the holy stamp of Saint Dylan and actually originate ideas rather than regurgitate those of other musicians, like a certain Detroiter we all know.
