The White Stripes Live


Source: All Music Guide

The White Stripes formed on Bastille Day in 1997, aiming to create simple, vigorous rock & roll with little more than Meg White's percussion and Jack White's guitar-and-vocal attack. Meg's drumming was deliberate and straightforward, while Jack's formidable guitar skills paid homage to garage rock, blues, and punk. A former drummer for the ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Genius. But somethings missing.... 18 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
I got the single, I got the album (elephant) and the single turned out to be a whole lot better. Mainly because the seven nation army is so unique compared to the rest of their recent music. With a good pulse on bass, great rhythm on the drums and twised lyrics makes my perfect song and at just short of 4 minutes it makes decent time for its catagory. The rest of their music is so much different to this which makes the single, at the much lower "single" price, a better deal if you only like this.
And why not the glorious 5 stars? Because when I first saw it it was on a music channel where they showed the hypnotic video too, but where is it? The vid isn't on the single, the album, dvd? It's a disspointment not to see the video again.
Thats not to bring the song down though. It's a work of art and I trully hope this is remembered.

It starts with an infectious guitar loop that sounds like (gasp) a bass, but is actually Jack's electric lead played a few octaves lower. It unfolds with Jack snarling "I'm gonna fight 'em off, A Seven Nation Army couldn't hold me back", with Meg's metronomic drumming underpinning the menace. It is The White Stripes' first single from the incredible LP "Elephant", and it is excellent.
The lyrics to "Seven Nation Army" suggest that Jack White is delivering a controlled attack on the media - a fair assumption considering the hype that greeted the band in England during the release and tour of "White Blood Cells" in 2001. However, if this is the message of the song it hasn't frightened off the music press, who, in turn have turned The White Stripes into this year's darlings of 'New Rock and Roll'.
Whatever the message and whatever the reaction to it, this is good ol' fashion rock and roll played with such ostensible simplicity that it oozes accomplishment. Tap your feet to that swaggering hook and bask in the shrill of Jack's delivery. "Seven Nation Army" heralds the start of The White Stripes revolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Chills 5 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply, it doesn’t get any better than this. You will have obviously heard the sinister genius that is ‘Seven nation army’ by now. Make sure you turn the volume up loud to really feel the haunting of the opening couple of bars and then after that place your hand under your chin to stop your jaw dropping in awe. Any one of these three songs could have been the A-side. ‘Good to me’ lasts slightly over two minutes, it’s about everything in one man’s life being good to him, but actually it’s about Jack playing some killer guitar rifts that have you jumping every which way and finally there’s Black Jack Davey (Why was this not on the album?!). Never mind ‘forsaking your husband to go with Black Jack Davey,’ you’ll find yourself wandering off, being led magically to wherever you can hear the White Stripes sound. Jack and Meg are your saviours now, just close your eyes and follow the blues.

5.0 out of 5 stars rip off 16 July 2012
By rbuxton
Format:MP3 Download
How will charging 2.49 for a legitimate MP3 download help towards stamping out illegal downloads. What are the overheads involved in this transaction? I'm paying up but I doubt many others would bother. Another example of how the 'music industry' rips off the public.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their most chart-ridden moment 10 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
In the true spirit of keeping a good and lo-fi thing going, The White Stripes return with another broken down, infectious tune that is bare bones but full of life. Jack White's vocals whilst being similar to an early Robert Plant are distinct, as the crunchy guitar laced with Blues-Rock soul carries the stripped and sometimes offbeat drumming onward, and is honestly exciting. The hype surrounding them is valid when broken anthems like these are produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant collection 11 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
Seven Nation Army itself is a strong single, even if it's not The White Stripes' best effort. But it's the B-sides that make this a must-have. Good To Me is a wonderful slice of simple old-school pop-rock, while Black Jack Davey is a masterful reimagining of the traditional country song. Excellent guitar work, nice vocals and the rock factor make it a version worth owning; it may seem sacrilege to say, but it's better than Dylan's effort on Good As I Been To You.
Buy this. But not for 8.
