I first came across the white stripes in a store while shopping for my weekly surply of music, i listened to them instore and after listening to the first few songs i dimissed them as not being my sort of sound. A few weeks later my cousin insisted i bought the album White Blood Cells, and ive been hooked ever since. They have a very hard sound to describe, but its a kind of southern drum hitting guitar struming greatness, with the very distinctive vocals of Jack White.
This is the first single from their latest album, and as fantastic as it is, the album contains in my opinion far better songs, and you cant really go wrong in the purchase it or any of their other albums.
So if you want something original fresh and ground breaking, the white stripes are for you. Superb.

The amazing Jack and Meg White have done it again,their amazing talent of writing the best blues/punk/rock songs has enabled them to write this fantastic mixture of acoustic country guitar, warbling vocals(provided by Jack)and raw rythms(provided by Meg).
Unlike most of the The white stripes other songs which provide screetching electric guitar and screaming vocals this song has a very gentle and jolly,american country feel to it and the lyrics are genius,with Jack singing about his stay at the infamous Hotel Yorba.

I heard about this band around the same time that I heard about the Strokes. At first I did not know what to think of them, the gimick of always appearing in red and white - was a clever marketing tool, and their strangle kind of southen american state sing along/barn dance style, at first sounds a bit 'silly' but soon you will find yourself tapping your feet and singing along to it(it is a very feet tappy song). All in all a quality single, it seems at last that the Americans are again producing gutiar based music that is not rap metal. Buy it as soon as you can, until then buy the self titled album!

Standard Great White Stripes 24 Jan. 2006
By Monsieur Valentine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The album version of Hotel Yorba plus a performance at Hotel Yorba. Rated X is a nice song about our double standards about women who get divorced and try to have fun afterwards. When the song's over, Jack says "Let 'em talk, Meg." Hmmm, inspired by their own divorce? Maybe. The live version of Hotel Yorba is a different sound with Meg singing back up on the chorus. This is a fun EP to own.

Good stuff - nothing groundbreaking 19 Dec. 2005
By Dennis Mitton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For some folks (me) the Stripes can't do much wrong. There's nothing groundbreaking here but a good old romp with Hotel Yorba. A must have if you're trying to keep the library current.
