Consequence of Sound

What makes Dodge and Burn such a terrific and complete listen is how much ground it effectively covers and how furiously it does so.

80
Clash
'Dodge and Burn' is a sassy ball of madness coming at your ears at 120mph and, while it might not be the most together record these peeps have recorded, it succeeds due to its pure will to do so.

American Songwriter
Hang on for a wild, careening drive as the Dead Weather take you on a searing ride through gutsy, fiery rock and roll that’s powerful and relentless, not to mention well played and tautly produced.
80
Spin

Dodge and Burn is one of their greatest.

80
AllMusic

Perhaps the first time the Dead Weather have truly lived up to their promise, Dodge and Burn is a joyride of an album -- sexy, fun, and dangerous, it upholds the tenets of rock & roll.

Drowned in Sound

On Dodge and Burn, Mosshart really makes the album her own and consigns White to the shadows.

A.V. Club
While The Dead Weather’s gothic grime-noise and electro-smudged blues certainly feel of a piece with the rest of White’s catalog, their songs are decidedly looser and less beholden to expectations.

Pitchfork

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.

Paste

White certainly knows his way around a kit and does a fine enough job leading this quartet through its third album. But ... he also forces the rest of his bandmates to play their parts with a clipped inflexibility that makes these songs feel more algorithmic than rhythmic.

70
Rolling Stone

Dodge and Burn ... is all business: 21st-century grindhouse blues metal with blood on its fangs and railroad hooch on the breakfast menu.

60
The Guardian
If the Dead Weather haven’t changed their approach, there are intriguing moments here.

musicOMH

As comebacks go, Dodge And Burn is a solid effort and possibly The Dead Weather’s most cohesive record to date. It’s just a shame that the band leave it so late in the day to delve into their box of tricks.

60
Under The Radar

Dodge and Burn is nothing if not heavy-handed in its attempt at conjuring up the same gothic witchcraft The Dead Weather once mastered.

60
NME

Such playfulness is sadly lacking elsewhere ‘Dodge And Burn’, a record largely comprised of sulphurous gothic rockers such as ‘Lose The Right’ and ‘Be Still’, both of which sound like a band working from muscle memory.

60
The 405

Dodge and Burn is the first Dead Weather record to provide genuine, progressive evidence that this most shoehorned of musical arrangements is perhaps finally beginning to bear fruit.

"Dodge And Burn" is probably The Dead Weather's heaviest, most consistent record yet. Guitar distortion surrounds you while you're trying to pick up whatever the hell Alison and Jack are trying to say! I like it!

Fav Tracks: Open Up, I Feel Love (Every Million Miles), Three Dollar Hat, Cop And Go, Impossible Winner, Buzzkill(er), Be Still

Least Fav Track: Too Bad

Wow. Catchy hooks, memorable performances, and a more consistent sound while still keeping that manic energy that has made their previous records so much fun to listen to. It's a punchy, memorable and exciting record that could have only come from the mind of Jack White and company, with even the lyrics being much better then previous records. And everyone on this record is playing to the top of their game: Jack Whites drumming has becoming more punchy and direct, Alison Mosshart's vocals are ... read more

Great rock album! One of the best of the year.

Amazing album! Great lyrics and fuzzy bass parts. The only track I didn't really like was "Three Dollar Hat".
