I hope it`s just a blip & we have a back to basics album coming out from them next.
I'm hurt. The songs are there. Blue Orchid. Denial Twist. Take, Take, Take. Red Rain. I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet). It was a lot different for Jack, he took a step back from electric guitar. But this album rocks. It is something new and exciting for the White Stripes, and just as they managed to kick ass on Elephant, they completely reinvented themselves and still kicked ass on Satan. It is the album they needed to release to be set apart from the 'garage rock' talk. They will entertain you whether it's electric guitar, piano, marimba, mandolin, or acoustic. I think you need to listen to the Stripes first three records (Elephant was well-produced) and realize how huge of a progression they've made, from being a Detroit garage rock duo to rock and roll idols.
