 "The Dead Weather, always a hard-rock dynamo, adds even more muscle on its third album, “Dodge and Burn,” stark, relentless, unison riffs and drums that sock steadily between sudden well-timed salvos. As Alison Mosshart and Jack White take turns on lead vocals, yowling and wailing, each song traces a crescendo of hysteria.” — The New York Times

"...a wonderfully unsettled vibe." NME

...proof once more that if you want killer, bluesy rock, White is your man."Kerrang

“Dodge and Burn bristles with clarity of riff, hook and tune" — The Observer

“...the first album from his Alison Mosshart-fronted supergroup is outlaw garage-ruckus business as usual for White; but it’s business attacked with fractious vigour and a livid sense of joy in the job" — The Independent 

"12 tracks of heavy guitar riffs, heavier grooves, and vivid tales of ne’er do wells.”  — Entertainment Weekly

"...the same kind of punishing, black-hearted rock they’ve always made.” — Stereogum

"Theirs is a blues defined not by chord progressions but physical reactions, embodying the music’s storied tradition of howls and moans and demonic possession into a fierce, physical sound. There’s a restlessness to Dodge and Burn, from Mosshart’s seething vocals and Fertita’s spasmodic guitar solos to Lawrence’s corroded basslines to White’s abrupt breakdowns. Even when songs are built around a shopworn sentiment, they’re given a twist: on the opening 'I Feel Love', Mosshart answers the song’s titular declaration with a withering 'every once in a while.' 7.3/10"Pitchfork
