Basically a promo for the album...,
This review is from: Blue Orchid [7" VINYL] (Vinyl)
The White Stripes have returned in glorious fashion. This is the vinyl version of the single "Blue Orchid" which is taken from the new album "Get Behind Me Satan". This single also features another song from the album, "The Nurse".
"Blue Orchid" is a really unique song, The White Stripe's take on 70's disco rock. "The Nurse" is a revelation as it is driven by marimba chords, and this is one instrument that will feature very prominently on "Get Behind Me Satan". The whimsical sound of the marimba is broken up by short bursts of intense drumming and guitar, and accompanied by sinister lyrics.
Basically, taken at face value this is an incredible single. However, if you do buy the album on CD then there isn't much need to buy this. However the album hasn't been released on vinyl yet, and no-one is sure whether it will be, so this may be just the thing for people who prefer vinyl. If you intend to buy the album on CD, you may want to consider buying one of the CD versions instead for the b-sides.
