It's pretty genius actually even if I'm not a huge fan. I liked White Blood Cells a lot and even De Stijl but they kind of went more into blues on the next records which abandoned what made them so great... but I guess it made them superstars. I haven't liked the side projects, Dead Weather is ok though.
I guess he reminds me of Tool's guitarist. He does something new and different with the guitar which is cool. However, it's not like 90% of guitarists who have played for more then 4 years couldn't do that.
