5.0 out of 5 stars Vulgairs, 5 July 2007
This review is from: Era Vulgaris (Audio CD)
I think Nick definetly needs to come back now, i think the robotic riffs are getting a little bit old! i must say i enjoyed this on the whole, more than Lullabies, i thought it was a bit dreary, but dont get me wrong had some great stuff on it. Anyway i think that the Stone Age have just gone a bit soft to be honest, i dont really get why they put 'make it witchu', a dessert sessions song on here, and left off the song they did with reznor! Lullaby's and Era Vulgaris fail to inspire the same way their debut, Songs for the deaf, and mostly, in my opinion Rated R did. Ask any fan who listened to Rated R and SFTD when they came out and the effect they had on them, because they changed the way i listened and appriciated music forever!

Anyway i know i drifted from the point, so here it is...This album is alright its most definetly worth buying cause there is some great stuff on here, but just dont expect another ' i think i lost my headache' or 'Avon'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great...not surprisingly really!, 21 Jun. 2007

cant believe the way people knock white stripes records. i think they forget they produce these albums in a matter of weeks, when other artists take years to produce material half as good as this! this is a great record and yet again they are a step-a-head of the trailing pack

5.0 out of 5 stars Take,Take,Take, 25 May 2006
This review is from: Get Behind Me Satan (Audio CD)
The 5th album from the white stripes sees them delve into the more acoustic side of things to say the least.

If your like me when you first heard Blue Orchid you where neither shocked or surprised by its power and intensity.I personally thought this eratic energy would flow through the whole album, this was not the case, but with this album that wasnt such a bad thing. This album brings new concepts and ideas to the table most noteably 'The Nurse' and 'White Moon'. They dont stand very tall on the album in comparison to the other tracks on the record, but its refreshing to hear a new dimension to Jack's music. The slow acoustic numbers are great most noteably 'As Ugly As I seem' and 'Forever For Her', which echo the 'old days' of De Stijl. Little people, Little Bird, Little room, Little acorns, and now 'little ghost' a light breezy folk tune sung by both Jack and Meg, before the fantastic 'denail twist' dont have to say much about that, fantastic!.

For me personally the highlights of the album are the fantastic 'Take,Take,Take' and the thunderous 'Red Rain'. 'Take,Take...' is a cool acoustic guitar/piano number about Jack seeing Rita Heyworth in a 'seedy' bar and the lengths he goes to get 'close to her' including 'looming around her table for a while'! its a great, fun concept. 'Red Rain'sees Jack turn up the volume in a 'Death Letter' esque assault on the ears with the haunting chimes at the start. (this song is also unbeliveable live!)

Overall i think its a fantastic album, it just needs your patiance and acceptance that all things have to change eventually, and they have, for the better???, you decide!
