I got the single, I got the album (elephant) and the single turned out to be a whole lot better. Mainly because the seven nation army is so unique compared to the rest of their recent music. With a good pulse on bass, great rhythm on the drums and twised lyrics makes my perfect song and at just short of 4 minutes it makes decent time for its catagory. The rest of their music is so much different to this which makes the single, at the much lower "single" price, a better deal if you only like this.
And why not the glorious 5 stars? Because when I first saw it it was on a music channel where they showed the hypnotic video too, but where is it? The vid isn't on the single, the album, dvd? It's a disspointment not to see the video again.
Thats not to bring the song down though. It's a work of art and I trully hope this is remembered.

Quite simply, it doesn’t get any better than this. You will have obviously heard the sinister genius that is ‘Seven nation army’ by now. Make sure you turn the volume up loud to really feel the haunting of the opening couple of bars and then after that place your hand under your chin to stop your jaw dropping in awe. Any one of these three songs could have been the A-side. ‘Good to me’ lasts slightly over two minutes, it’s about everything in one man’s life being good to him, but actually it’s about Jack playing some killer guitar rifts that have you jumping every which way and finally there’s Black Jack Davey (Why was this not on the album?!). Never mind ‘forsaking your husband to go with Black Jack Davey,’ you’ll find yourself wandering off, being led magically to wherever you can hear the White Stripes sound. Jack and Meg are your saviours now, just close your eyes and follow the blues.

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.

The first single to be taken from their number one album 'Elephant' '7 Nation Army' is right up there with the best releases of the year so far. The title track will be familiar to the many people who have bought the album but for those who are perhaps coming to the White Stripes for the first time, suffice it to say that Jack and Meg offer up an intoxicating brew of blues-rock, with an added depth to their sound courtesy of Jack's effects-riddled guitar line.
What really makes this an essential purchase however are the two additional tracks. The first, a cover of Brendan Benson's recent song 'Good To Me' taken from his 'Lapalco' album, outstrips the original. The Whites then rip through the old American Blues / Country standard 'Black Jack Davey', borrowing most heavily from Bob Dylan's version. Its incessant, chugging rythym is infectious and will have you reaching for the repeat button as soon as it ends.
All in all, a worthy addition to the collection of any Stripes fan, or indeed that of the general music lover looking for a taste of the hottest act around.

How will charging £2.49 for a legitimate MP3 download help towards stamping out illegal downloads. What are the overheads involved in this transaction? I'm paying up but I doubt many others would bother. Another example of how the 'music industry' rips off the public.

The title track sounds a little different to any other track produced by The White Stripes thus far. Where as they never have a bass guitar, this track does, or so it appears to. In fact, it is a de-tuned guitar that leads the song from beginning to end, giving the White Stripes a fuller sound, but still left rough around the edges thanks to Jack's awesome guitar antics and Meg's complimentary drumming style. Blues hasn't sounded this good since 30's.
This tune will help convert a few more into Stripes fans, but be warned that the usual Stripes songs are like the 2nd and 3rd tracks listed here. If you don't like this track, you don't like The White Stripes!
