I'm impressed by Jack White. From the White Stripes to his project with Loretta Lynn to his new blues album and everything in between is a broad range of styles and he really seems to immerse himself in each genre he tries. He doesn't come across as a shallow poser to me but more like a kid in a candy store exploring all the different ways to express himself musically. I'm heading out to pick up his new album today. I agree with the Ryan Adams recommendation, too. I think these two guys are deeply intellectual in their approach to music and are going to be around for a long time and produce huge and varied bodies of work similar to what Randy Newman has given us.
