saw jack white last night in phoenix- spectacular-  played this tune
cool  (photo is sweet too : )
This was the last new album I remember Tower Records hyping with a big record release party before they collectively threw up their hands and locked the doors for good.
Hot Damn!
I really appreciate how Jack loves to go as far as he can with everything he has, like Byrne and Belew and so many other unorthodox wildcats jammed for our perpetual enjoyment on RP!
RP rarely converts me.  I used to dismiss all his albums as whatever.  But I ended up getting Jack White's latest album — totally in love.  The one with the vulture sitting on his shoulder on the cover.  It's crazy, but I hear the over-pedalled piano minor scale riffs in my sleep - it's become a brain obsession that I just can't shake.  
Funky? More like gunky. Junky. Spastic Monkey. Check yoself out some soul music. This ain't it.

RP is so great consistently, I end up logging in for the occasional jarring Sucko Barfo. Yuk
Dang, this is funky.
What initially turned me off about The White Stripes was Jack White's near-hysterical vocals - always reminded me of "Ballroom Blitz" by The Sweet.  I must be getting older, or maybe more mature in my listening habits, because this song didn't have me lunging for the mouse to click on the mute button.  Hmmm. {#Dancingbanana_2}

It's crude, but I like it when I'm in a mood...I'm just not in it right now.
RIP Stripes

Yet another nice retro sound from the Stripes.  Great groove.


Hottest drummer since Karen Carpenter.

ETA:  And I don't mind saying, *this* has got a good beat.
Quite interesting interpretive style! {#Devil_pimp}

Thanks for that.  Your comment to a previously unknown artist (to me) sparked a trip to Wikipedia, then a half hour of youtube...

P.S.  Actually, I've heard 'Do You Know What I Mean' many times, just didn't know it was him...

Agreed. Well said.

so glad to hear WS again on RP.  Seems to have been a big lull.

I must be one of the last people in western civilization to have heard their first WS tune.  Based on this initial experience, I like what I hear.  It seems another band whose work I have recently encountered, The Raconteurs, has been heavily influenced by Jack Black's vocals and WS stylings, in general.  {#Ask}

 
This post made me laugh.

(Jack White not Jack Black, and Jack White is in the Raconteurs. But for some reason I think you already know that. If not, sorry for laughing!)

I just saw "Walk Hard" last night and Jack White makes a pretty funny Elvis.
thank you RP for some rockin White Stripes - my XM-in-the-car seems to know only one tepid WS track, i mean they tried hard to find the worst one to play constantly XM sucks - can we PLEASE have RP in the car?? now?
Every time I hear the White Stripes a I love them a little more! :dancingbanana_2:
This one always makes me happy...and, um, deaf, too...

Well I am about as far from a musician as you can get, tone deaf engineer, but I USED to agree with you. Subpar instrument playing and singing, but to catchy tunes. But after listinging to them alot, one of my brother's faveroite bands, I have changed my mind. I used to get hung up on the no bass, sorta hollow sound, with the sloppy guitar. But they have gotten better, and the piano on 'Get behinde me Satin' really filled in their sound so I started to listen to that album. Then I started to like their other music. They have an AC/DC, or Franz Ferdinand, appeal to me. I really have no reason to like it on a musical level. The songs are just really catchy and great to listen to.
"Get Behinde Me Satin"? Is that on the latest CD at Victoria's Secret? Maybe that's "Get me Satin Behind"...? :think: :think:
Great album top to bottom IMO.
Went to get a cup of coffee and we're back to the good music now.

Add me to the list of those who "don't get" the White Stripes. amb599 called them "poster children for bad music", and I would agree with that if I could see any semblance of music in their work. Out of curiosity, are there any real musicians who think the WS are worth the plastic their CDs are pressed from? I can see how the raw, untamed sound could appeal to some of the masses, but does anyone who knows and competently plays music actually like this band?
I haven't listent to the WS much, but I have liked what I heard. I can tell you about my buddy Scott who was a big WS fan, a total music snob, and a fantastic musician. He played primarily ragtime and pre-war blues guitar, and really well. He constantly bemoaned the lack of skill and poor taste of modern music, but the WS apparenlty made it into his good graces. As a mediocre musician, I really appreciate skill, when it isn't just skill for skill's sake (can't stand Satriani for example), and I really appreciate creativity. I think the WS seem to be trying to do something interesting, besides just selling records. But I'll have to spend more time listening to them to really judge.
I've been thinkin' about the doorbell, when ya gonna ring it, when ya gonna ring it! I like this song, but it's definitely too close to "My Doorbell" to be on the same album IMHO.
This song always catches my attention and makes me squeal with glee when I hear that first note. :bananapiano:
Sweet! More White Stripes please!! One of the very best of 2005...
this is a decent song, but they really make alot of junk.

I dont mind hearing them, but yet to have purchased any of their albums. As a musician I would only say that all music has it's place. To understand the music is to know the writer alittle more than you did just before you heard it. Would you ever walk up to your child who gave you a drawing and say that sucks, or do you take into consideration the meaning? Are you people out there in the world more about format or content?

I was rocking to this album yesterday on the way from work. NPR got bumped.

Jack is amazing because he creates music the way it used to be. WS may sound like bands from the 70s but they have more of an edgy twist that make them an original that I can listen to anytime I want to get into a groove.

They can hardly carry a tune on album either, but like the Velvet Underground, it's that chaos that makes them kinda cool. Haven't seen or heard them live tho.

:bananapiano: :jump: I love this song!!! Makes me want to dance everytime I hear it! I adore the White Stripes. Best band to come along in too long a time! Makes me love rock n roll again.

This album is great - I think that it really shows how good this band is and will be. Plus, Meg needs a spanking (in a good way).
Bleh, the White Stripes have to come and ruin my otherwise enjoyable RP groove. The vocals in every single song of theirs are absolutely atrocious.
The lyrics are something to behold: . . . Just because she makes a big rumpus She don't mean to be mean or hurt you on purpose, boy Take a tip and do yourself a little service Take a mountain turn it into a mole Just by playing a different role . . .
I like this "boy". :dancingbanana_2:
Can I give this a 20? A 10 just isn't enough. Love the White Stripes, LOVE THIS SONG!
I just want to get up and dance!!!! It's amazing
really good album. i like the song on the album about even the dog gets it. sometimes the best music is the simplest.
I saw The White Stripes at the end of January 2006 and I was struck by what a great showman Jack White has become. A very, very sexy man, and refreshing to see someone choose his own look instead of regarding Spinal Tap as a style bible. I cant remember him speaking more than a dozen words, but he held the audience in the palm of his hand. The audience displayed a very wide demographic range, showing the appeal of the band is very broad. Not sure Meg has much of a solo career ahead of her, however, when Jack pursues his 'other projects'!

Poo Poo. I can hear a piano too. :bananapiano:
The first song on this album is pure madness!
Moved from a 6 to a 7. Pretty good when played loud.
Heard a very thoughtful interview with Jack White on NPR recently. He was an upholstery apprentice for a while, and almost went into the biz. It taught him persistence, detail, and style, according to him. He's intentionally created the WS to be predicated on the concept of "three." (Because three legs is the most stable furniture structure) So, the band is simply drums/guitar/voice. And the color structure is red/white/black. You can poo-poo this, but it's a hellofalot more thoughtful about what the band should be that I would've expected.
want to hate them... just can't... love love this song...

Or even NOMEANSNO another Canadian two-piece, bass and drums. Though they added a geetar player later on.
Relatively tolerable, for these two.

But I think it would never be played on RP though. Oh, and listen to DFA1979 as loud as you can. When the plaster on the walls start to crack, you are doing well. on topic: WS are nice too btw.
This song is soooo infectious... I hate to love it... but I do.

i am really surprised at the number of thumbs down on these two - they have fantastic timing
hum, interesting . . .
I know RP are White Stripes fans....but RP can really do without this awful stuff. The voice :puke:
Good grief. This is the most annoying duo that has come along in decades.
would be enjoyable were it not for the drummer. terrible drumming.
I'm relatively new to WS, but it gets better on every listen!
The Doors never had a bass player until the end, when they used Elvis's old bassist: Jerry Scheff. But before Jerry, Ray Manzarek was a wiz at filling in the bottom of the rhythm section with the Fender Rhodes and flying feet working those foot pedals. But remember that the bottom line can be provided by piano, organ--even tuba!
White Stripes is one of the best bands (duo)!!! I love the video of this song w/ Conan O'Brien. They got a great imagery.

I'm with islander on the WS. Couldn't figure out what the buzz was all about and picked up a couple of their CD's in the used bin. Am hooked. The last two (including this one) are very nice.

Good watchin: KRCW set (click here) (64mb) Technically, the white stripes are poster children for bad music. They break the rules to make it work. For some, this doesn't make it, but if you can keep up it's very good stuff. One oddity about WS is that ryhthm and timing is not supplied by the percussion.
I agree. I don't get it. I want to and I come close, but never quite get there.
I try to listen to this one every time it comes on, and every time I wind up either muting or fleeing the room to get away from it. I want to get it, but it ain't workin'.

Nah - nonsense. I saw them live a couple of years ago - so before this song - but they were absolutely storming. Not sure what Meg adds to things, but Jack was in virtuoso form. It was definitely not wienerless!
A few listens have revealed that this is a bit of a crib of their earlier "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground."

Wonderful. Let's express this as an SAT question. vagina is to woman as... soul is to man beer is to party engine is to car gravy is to thanksgiving turkey weiner is to hotdog I'm not sure which response would paint you in the least unflattering light, but all are troubling comparisons. Glad a two-piece band can elicit such a reaction from you. And jump on me all you want anti-PC police. I posit that I'm responding in exactly the way one should when one disagrees with the views of another.
his voice just gets me all fired up! I love their sound.

:lol: I'm kind of with you. Though with all the distortion and simple drums, they sort of manage to do without. Morphine left out the guitarplayer but at least kept two bass strings!
