White Stripes ~ Get Behind Me Satan
Top Customer Reviews
The whole album is not dissapointing in the least. There has been doubt previous to the release after Jack White stated that he didn't much use his guitar on the album, but none of these people had heard the album.
Many were put off by Blue Orchid, saying it wasn't "Seven Nation Army", but why would we want to hear an exact replica? Jack wasn't making Seven Nation Army Part 2, it was a new track with a fresh sound.
The White Stripes albums are always slight different; their first, self titled album was ecclectic and noisey, brilliant of course and very very raw. Next up came De Stijl, which sounded quieter than their debut but still as energetic. The lyrics were more mature and the album sounded polished and well made.
Their third album, White Blood Cells was the most "studio-sounding", it featured excellent lyrics and a more folky background.
The big one was Elephant, made in about three weeks this album was a sweet mix of bluesy guitar and quiet, moving songs and of course Seven Nation army.
Their new album, Get Behind Me Satan is probably the most experimental, with the introduction of the Marimba as a prominent instrument (a sort of giant Xylaphone)and more piano than guitar; the album is almost shocking by the way it has been stripped down. The first song Blue Orchid is fantastic and feels very Stripesy, next up is The Nurse, our introduciton to Jack on the Marimba, this song is also very good, the lyrics and rhythm are excellent.
Next is My Doorbell, sounding very fifties and with a catchy tune this is probably their most releasable track after the single out now.
Forever for her (is over for me) is a song on the piano, very nice.Read more ›
The best thing about the White Stripes is the way you can analyse them to death. The artworks full of symbolism and religious imagery, engrossing! And JAck wrote a very thought provoking....thing...yeah, the artwork alone is worth the price, but people ain't like that! They want the music too!
Luckily it delivers, OH IT DELIVERS!
I WOULD say that "The Nurse" is the best track. Built around a Marimba with seemingly sporadic bursts of noise and lyrics about betrayal of trust, how those who you trust with your life could well be the ones to kill you. The White Stripes at their most experimental, adventurous, and best.
There are two other themes that seem to prevail. "Little Ghost" and "Take. Take. Take" seem to be about falling in love with a ghost that only you can see. What a lovely thought.
Meanwhile, tracks such as "I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)" toy with the idea of incest....intriguing, seeing as we're still not too sure if "they guys" are brother and sister, hmmm.
See, it's intrigue that makes them. They are...some of the mystics of music. As such it's quite hard to hate them. How could one possibly hate a band this interesting?
Ah, yeah, the music. It isn't to everyone's taste. Some will be expecting (DEMANDING) more Elephant, more riotous rock outs. They WILL be dissappointed, they will spit upon this album and sit in a corner, foetal position, gently rocking, caressing their dog eared copy of White Blood Cells. But for the more adventurous listener, who appreciates the place of the marimba in music, this is a treat, well reccommended.
Blue Orchid, the opener and first single, is well known to everyone, and opens the album at a brilliant pace. All albums should have a first track as good as this!
The Nurse is an odd fish. It sounds like Jack is playing the Xylophone (turns out it's actually a Marimba) and Meg is beating him at random intervals with a hammer. I was very worried when I first heard this, it sounded extremely wierd, but I'm pleased to say it's a grower.
My Doorbell is classic Stripes. Fantastic, instant hit. I love this song!
Forever For Her is different again. Pianos galore and not too bad for it. A very strong track.
Little Ghost is again odd. You probably won't like this at first, with some odd vocal harmonising at the end. The lyrics are wierd, but it's grown on me so it's now one of my favourite tracks.
Most people say that the Denial Twist is the best track of the album, but even though it's quite good there are better tracks here.
White Moon starts off softly and grows towards the end of the track. It seems to carry on the ghost theme of the album. It's not brilliant.
Instinct Blues is BRILLIANT. Jack finds his guitar again, and the song is all the better for it. This song reminds me of the Black Keys.
Passive Manipulation is the Meg-led short track in the middle of the album. It's difficult not to like this track. Its a breath of fresh air, breaks up Instinct Blues and Take, Take, Take.
The lyrics on Take, Take, Take are quality. And musically, it's a pretty strong track too. Very good.
As Ugly as I Seem comes out of nowhere.Read more ›
