4.0 out of 5 stars The single that will make The White Stripes a household name, 10 April 2003
This review is from: 7 Nation Army (Audio CD)
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.
