"Third Man is ecstatic to induct into the standard catalog Consolers Of The Lonely, the critically-lauded, fan-adored, Grammy Award-winning sophomore LP from the beloved quartet known as the Raconteurs. Before surprise releases were common, the Raconteurs ambushed the world with the sudden, unannounced release of Consolers Of The Lonely on March 25th, 2008, a time when coordinating a worldwide physical and digital surprise release was even less easily accomplished than it is today. Consolers finds the Raconteurs at their mightiest, exploring what it means to be a contemporary rock band in a classic sense, full-on bombastic horn arrangements and gut-wrenching murder ballads sit side-by-side while the swagger and confidence of riffs and licks for days firmly establish this album as one of the pre-eminent releases of the 2000s. Stoughton gatefold LP jacket, 180g vinyl."
