Classic of the Week…..The White Stripes!!!

This is how Rolling Stone describe this album:

 

“The third album by Jack and Meg White was the right dynamite for a mainstream breakthrough. Jack's Delta-roadhouse fantasies, Detroit-garage-rock razzle and busted-love lyricism, as well as Meg's toy-thunder drumming all peaked at once.”

 

I like the review of  Dan Kilian & Ryan Schreiber, they said: "It's been a long time since I've wanted to hear an album every day, let alone more than ..."

 

For me the best tracks are Hotel Yorba, Fell In Love With A Girl  and We're Going To Be Friends....and for you???

This is the only White Stripes' song that I listen to.

 

It is also the soundtrack of the upcoming Justice League movie.

I can’t believe it @rossi1911, you’re telling me that you don’t listen to this hymn….

I know that is not in this album but is part of the soundtrack of Suicide Squad also DC movie, but you said that Icky Thump is the only one you listen to

I'll never forget the first time I heard 'Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground'... The opening feedback made me jump, and before I could get to the stereo to turn it down, the riff hit me. 

 

One of my favourite bands of all time, this. Great choice!

Great shout, @AutoRaptor!

 

'Elephant' is certainly up there as a key album for me. 'Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine' and 'Black Math' will always be huge hitters.

 

When I was 15 drumming in my first band I reaaalllllly wanted to cover the latter. I begged my friends to listen and learn it! But they said they "didn't like The White Stripes".

 

I no longer talk to those people 😉
