5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Forget This Album!, 8 Sep 2004
This review is from: The White Stripes (Audio CD)
Although "Elephant" is the widely acclaimed, massive-selling album and "White Blood Cells" was their first flirt with the mainstream, "White Stripes" is a beautifully crafted debut.
The White Stripes' are now in the elite of rock and roll but I would suggest very few people own this classic. Reading an interview by them in which they called this album their favourite, I thought it right to post a review.
If you have only justattuned to this great duo, then go and buy this album. As far as debuts go, it doesn't get much better. It has all the creativity of "Elephant" but in a grimier, dirtier and evidently lower-budget way.
The White Stripes can only be perfectly respected by listening to all 4 albums. "Elephant" is genius and owned by millions. "White Blood Cells" brought is "Fell In Love With A Girl" and I would suggets is owned by many. "De Stijl" is probably the most under-rated work in rock and roll history and should be purchased by everyone for great tracks like "Apple Blossom" and "Little Bird". But "White Stripes" is the beginning of the phenomenal band we know now. Songs like "Suzy Lee", "Sugar Never Tasted So Good" and "Astro" lay the foundations for their emphatic rise to the elite of music...
All in all, this must be bought.
