5.0 out of 5 stars Please DONT get a Bass player!!!!!!!!!!!!, 10 Jun 2005
This review is from: The White Stripes (Audio CD)
The White Stripes truly continue to inform the world of rock, soul and music in general the way they only know how to- with a guitar and a drum kit.
However, this first album is an absolute revalation and already a classic. The songs are fresh and diverse and most people can feel an affinity with it. The rhythms are simple and the monotony is what makes the White Stripes so complex. This is by far the best White Stripes album in terms of fressness, vibe and excitement. The lyrics are profound and dont play second to the catchy rhythms.
Highlights
Jimmy the Exploder: My favourite song on the album. And what do you know, written by Meg White- she needs to write more songs if this is what she comes up with.
The Big Three Killed My Baby: Second best song for me on the album. I'm still trying to find out the fascination with 3?
Astro: Love the 'ACDC' part
If I'm wasting My time: Excellent 'slow song' still classic stripes
One more cup of coffee: I have to start listening to Dylan, or White Stripes covers :)
When I hear My Name: So catchy, please don't disappear.
Actually, every song is a highlight. YOU WILL BE SPOILT FOR CHOICE. I URGE YOU TO LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM. IT WONT DISAPPOINT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Rock'N'Roll Album thats innovative genius!, 12 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The White Stripes (Audio CD)
Although many of my friends dont think much of this album they do not appreciate, that it is just different to there normal pop way of life. It is a Rock N Roll sound stripped down to the bear essentials influenced by a Blues sound. This is the best debut album since Oasis' 94 release Definitely Maybe. This CD really is a breath of fresh air and will guide the future of Rock 'N' Roll!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOH LORDY!, 16 Aug 2005
By 
This review is from: The White Stripes (Audio CD)
I have my theory that 'White Blood Cells' and 'De Stilj' were one album that got divided into an alt rock disc (WBC) and a blues(y) disc (De Stilj). If thats true it is safe to say each album has degressed in quality. Part of the evidence for my theory is like Elephant this mixes the bluesy side of the band and the 'other' side of the band. However, the 'other' side of Elephant was no longer wild, whacky and brilliant but fairly commercial to be honest. Whereas theres no sense of 'selling out' here, its totally wild and brilliant. so what if meg cant drum, Jack more than makes up for it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The stars and WHITE STRIPES, 8 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The White Stripes (Audio CD)
Very much a part of the newly emerging New York Garage scene the White Stripes show as much promise as NME favourites The Strokes.
This, their self-titled debut album is an exciting fresh breath of air. The brother and sister duo are making waves, and it's clear to see why.
Stripped down to the bare essentials, a guitar, drum-kit, and vocals are all thats needed to make a very fresh, catchy, and intricate songs, that flow well.
Sticking to short songs, the album is very accessable, and if you're looking for a cross between Clinic, The Strokes, and Mogwai then give this a try.
