Get behind me satan

Recommended Posts

so what is everyone's thoughts on the latest effort from the white stripes. I've only had time to listen to it once so far, but i was a little dissapointed, not many instantly enjoyable songs, but it may grow on me. Still I dont expect it to come close to topping de stijl.

I've only given it two listens, but i think it may well be their strongest album yet. Dunno what they were thinking releasing "Blue Orchid" as a single, though. It's one of the weaker tracks.

Only had one listen as well. I like the fact they have been a bit more experimental this time but a couple of the tracks just sounded made up on the spot and were pretty dreadful. Most of it sounded alright though.

Its quite a slow moving album compared to the others they've released. I'm not a big fan of this new album but I like the songs with glockenspiel parts and guitar overdubs.

I'm sure it'll grow on me someway or another.

I wasn't convinced when I first listened to it, but I wandered around on with it on repeat for a few hours and I really like it now. It's a strange mix of songs that would fit in with De Stijl and some that seem left over from Elepant. It isn't going to be as successful comercially as Elephant, but I'm willing to guess the majority of people bought the album on the strength of Seven Nation Army anyway.

Denial Twist, Take Take Take, Red Rain and The Nurse are all brilliant. Passive Manipulation is pretty pointless and Meg's voice sounds a bit ropey. Jack's voice has gone back to that yelp that he had in previous records :up:

Jack White plays his guitar sooo well, have you read interviews or anything, he plays with $100 guitars sometimes but makes it sound good cos he plays it so well. Good Band.

My mum said that too. Have you seen the video to Blue Orchid? It's wonderful, Meg looks all pixie-like.

I quite like Blue Orchid, but it just doesn't fit with the rest of the album at all. It's like listening to Blue Orchid and then the real album starts with The Nurse.
