For all of you who recognise Jack as whisper from the past, keeping Page&Plant' s myth alive, the bonus song will make your day

The Denial Twist is the third, and possibly last single from The White Stripe's lastest (and excellent) album, Get Behind Me Satan.
"The Denial Twist" is a great uptempo song with Jack White on piano rather than guitar, Meg drumming as energetically as ever and even some tambourine. It is a really catchy song that might not perhaps be as interesting or complex as some of their songs, but is certainly enjoyable to listen to and has some great lyrics.
The b-side is a cover of "Shelter of Your Arms", which I think was performed originally by Paul Simon but has been covered by others since then. However The White Stripes do put their own unique stamp on it, and return to their more familar guitar based sound and Jack sings mournfully about seeking comfort in the "shelter of your arms". It is a really interesting song that builds to a very strong and memorable chorus, and there is a sinister, dark tone running throughout the song, it reminds me in some ways of their cover of "Lovesick".
I do think "Shelter Of Your Arms" is a great song that any Stripes fan should pick up, however for anyone else I would recommend getting one of their albums instead, especially as this only has two songs on it.
It's a shame that the videos for their singles aren't included on the CDs as they were with previous albums, because The Denial Twist video is great, very bizarre and funny, dealing with The Stripes going on the Conan O'Brien show, dodging giant feet, driving oddly shaped cars, whilst the perspective constantly switches so they change size throughout. It was directed by Michael Gondry who has directed a number of their videos, which were among their best, so it would have been nice to see it included on this disc to give us a little more value for money.

Surprisingly Good for a 2 song single 24 Jan 2006
By Olivier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well to be honest, there's only two songs and man, that's not cool. But the good news is "The Denial Twist" is probably the best track off Get Behind Me Satan and "Shelter Of Your Arms" is the first instance of Jack White using a wah pedal - and it rocks. If the single's price isn't too steep for you and you're going to pay for your music, then this track is worth paying for. Jesus its $13 American... Okay so listen to it at your friend's house. But listen to it!! Because the extra track is really good. It has some wah guitar, a cool driving backbeat, some piano and some hauntingly/appropriately distant vocals from Jack.
