5.0 out of 5 stars Confounding expectations, 26 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Get Behind Me Satan (Audio CD)
This record surprised me. I am a fan of the White Stripes, and awaited this new album with anticipation. I knew it was going to be something of a departure from their previous albums, but was still surprised not to love it straight away. Even Blue Orchid took a few plays for me to get into. But it's well worth the effort - this is a grower of an album. The standout tracks for me are My Doorbell (instantly hooked on this one - very catchy) and Passive Manipulation (charmingly sung by Meg), but I now love them all. It's refreshing to hear more piano-based songs and quiet ballads as well as a couple of tracks heavy on the electric guitar - on this album I actually prefer the former. And as far as comments from another reviewer about Meg being an "extremely untalented drummer" go - technical expertise is not the point! You need to have more than just a surface interest in music to appreciate this album. In conclusion: intriguing and ultimately beautiful.
