It gets to that point where you'd rather be listening to almost any other band to get past those moments where its dribble. A classic white stripes album. Not their best, but certainly awesome in its own magnitude nevertheless. One person found this helpful. This album, along with "De Stijl", proves that not only are The White Stripes here to stay but that they are true modern day legends.
The Stripes prove once again that a duo can rock just as hard as any "full" band with their catchy and thought-provoking garage rock. Whereas other 5-star albums I've given received the rating due to either very interesting or very catchy songs, this one and "White Blood Cells" contains both which is very rare.
Jack White shows once more that he has a great singing voice which perfectly matches the songs he's got a lot of charisma and charm. The lyrics are, once again, extremely well-written and quotable and they reward analyzation.
Musically I don't think they're necessarily great musicians, but it's the WAY they play that makes them so wonderful the songs are hardly complex musically but they somehow strike you as amazing.
They use the limitations of their skills to a great advantage in creating extremely hard rockin' tunes most of the time. To have track each be a catchy song is one thing, but to also have exceptional lyrics gives these two albums a longevity most bands would KILL for. Any self-respecting music fan ought to own this album along with the other four Stripes albums out right now.
Highlights include: the whole album! I had reservations when I purchased this album. Normally a fan of the classic rock genre, I usually have trepidations when it comes to newer music. I wasn't let down by this youthful duo. First, the DVD is a nice bonus. Though I would not have paid too much extra for it. It contains several very fun and lighthearted music videos and some audio clips. All tracks on the CD are great. When listening to this CD, its hard to believe that this band only consists of Meg and Jack.
Very rich sounds, playful melodies, and inspired lyrics. This in one up and coming band to pay attention to. A phenomenal album by the brilliant Jack White. I would recommend this album to every rock fan alive! All these songs sound similar to the other White Stripes stuff.
I not an expert but they just sound the same. The hard driving beat and the guitar parts. I mean its good and all, it gets me motivated and pumped up but after awhile its just like one song.
This one came in super fast and bran new I am very happy with it :. Images in this review. Great sound from Vinyl, one of their best albums. A must have for any White Stripe Fan. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. One of The White Stripes' finest albums The songs are quite short one lasting under a minute and it doesn't take too long to play through the album; The one other good thing about the songs is that they sound as good 10 years on from when I first heard them Personal stand-out song though many would disagree is 'Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground' Jack White repeats certain key lines, straining his voice to impart meaning and feeling.
Again, the state of the relationship in question is uncertain. The closest thing to a dud on this record is "We're Going to Be Friends," a gentle, nostalgic ditty of innocent love and childhood. It's a little too pleasant, lacking any of the fear and confusion of those pre-double-digit years, but its softness gives the record's midpoint some time to inhale before another six exhalations of fire. Finally, at the close of the album, Jack sits alone at the piano for "This Protector.
It's the floating resonance of the moment, the intensity of the feeling, that gives these words meaning. White Blood Cells doesn't veer far from the formula of past White Stripes records; all are tense, sparse and jagged.
But it's here that they've finally come into their own, where Jack and Meg White finally seem not only comfortable with the path they've chosen, but practiced, precise and able to convey the deepest sentiment in a single bound. It's hard to know at this point in the game where they'll head from here, but what matters is right now.
And right now, I want to listen to this album again. Skip to content Search query All Results. The album was ranked on many "best of " year-end lists, including being ranked among Blender ,  Rolling Stone ,  Mojo ,  and Kerrang!
