Listen to songs from this album?
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
"Your Pretty Good Lookin'" is an average song for the White Stripes. In my opinion, not a very good song to start out the album. But, it does feature some fairly good lyrical composition and Meg's usual (thump, thump, thump) to identify it as a Stripes song. - 3/5
"Hello Operator" was a classic Stripes work, featuring one of Jack's infamous lyrical peices, and giving a nice second start for the album. Meg goes crazy in this one, actually forming leads and doing something on her percussion (thump is this time on the symbol). Great song but in relation to the CD, was unneaded, and should have been released on a different album or released as a single.- 4.5/5

"Little Bird" is another on of those classic Stripes songs. Though less heard on the radio and not nearly as well known as "Hello Operator", Little bird is easily one of the best on the album. Though jacks skill in guitar isn't well shown in this song, the rhythm and melody are catchy and play the theme out strongly - 4.5/5

"Apple Blossom", one of the better songs on this album, featuring a glimpse of White's piano skill and a very good look into his lyrical skils. Though not a specificly great song, this is a border-lined classic for your White Stripes Collection. - 4/5
Sry guys, no time to write reviews for all the songs, editing in two or three songs a day.



Don't write posts on this review against me personally, and if you did please delete them! I'm a little new to writing reviews, so if you see something that you don't like, PM ME!

This is not what this forum is supposed to be about.

Giving a good, overall review of an album, that you feel represents the way you feel about an album. Look at one of Don's album reviews, that it what this forum is for. Not this.

You should wait to submit reviews once they are fully finished.

I don't see the problem with this review structurally.

I will say that "Southern Can" is a cover and, I think its pretty good.
