Anyone who thinks The Strokes are the future of guitar music think again. I first heard about this band on holiday last August when everyone was being told they were a brother/sister combo. They're not of course, but it doesn't matter what relation they are - this is most stunningly adrenaline-filled band in a long long time. Combine Hendrix-esque solos, Clapton's blues and a voice at times like a cat being dragged through a lawnmower(but in a beautiful way). Add some 'Stones and Dylan covers, bump up the tempo 1000% and you've got this stunning debut album. From the opening "Jimmy..." thru "Breaking Down" and "The Big Three..." its clear this album is very special indeed. It has its mellower moments - "Do" and the Dylan cover "One more cup of coffee" being notable, but for me this revolves around tracks like "Broken bricks" and the sensational "Screwdriver". The closest anyone I've heard get to Hendrix, but, I hope, with enough mass-appeal to make them popular today. Even better than White Blood Cells, I hope this doesn't suffer for preceding it, cos it's simply fantastic. Words can't come close to doing this album justice - you must buy it NOW!!!

I was recommended the White Stripes by a friend who just said 'listen to this and be prepared to be blown away' I did and I was !
This is music that you feel and is a million miles away from the majority of the smooth, over engineered product available today. Yes, they do owe a debt to Blues artists like Robert Johnson (I defy anyone not to like 'Stop breaking down' and to Led Zeppelin for the vocal style). But having said that this is music with passion, more concerned with a feeling than how it sounds on a hi-fi. There is a version of 'one more cup of coffee' on this album and it is great to compare that to the version on Robert Plants 'Dreamland' album - this version could have been recorded on the coffee shop! Robert Plant is a lot smoother these days...
I recommend this album to anyone to wants to listen to music that demands your attention rather than music that is just background noise (Sade fans will not like this album).
So get a copy, turn up the hi-fi and let this album grab you.

All Hail The White Stripes!
Just as I was starting to lose faith in music, beginning to think that originality was dead and buried, I finally discover the White stripes. One guitar, one drum kit. That's it. The bare bones of music. De Stjil is widely regarded as The White Stripes finest hour, but I have always had a preference for this album. It has a more rough and ready feel to it, the rythyms just a little more brutal, it rocks just a little bit more.
The only weak track on the entire album is "the big three killed my baby" which I'm not overly keen on, but other than that, this is faultless music. I have run out of superlatives to lay upon the duo, The White Stripes are surley the saviours of real rock 'n' roll.

Debuts don't get much better than this. It's impossible to describe the power these two siblings from detroit have, and even the ones who don't like the White Stripes have to admit that they make a hell of a noise for two people. Admittedly, Meg is not the best drummer in the world, but fans will know that this was the desired sound that Jack chose, and any lack in drumming ability is replaced by a great ability in guitar playing and songwriting on Jacks part. It's hard to recomend a particular song from this album, they all deserve credit. Favorites for me include the opening song 'Jimmy the exploader' for its simplicity and hell raising amplitude, 'The big three killed my baby' for similar reasons, and 'St. James infirmary blues' which has to be heard to be truely appreciated. Another favorite is 'When I hear my name', the riff seems to lodge itself in your head, and you will find yourself humming it for days. Credit must also be given to their cover of Bob Dylans 'One more cup of coffee'. On every track Jacks unique voice soars over his raw guitar riffs, whilst Meg beats anthemically. It's true that Jack has one of the best voices in rock, yet he doesnt seem to realise. After listening to this album I am kicking myself for not realising this band sooner. It is easily their best album simply because it is their first. It is totally unblemished from the world of comercialisation and pop critics that nit pick every technical detail. It is raw and powerfull rock music at its best. In one word: Awesome.

I just got into this great band (can a duo still be..?) and this is the last album I bought by them. Perhaps not their most accessible (I'm sure most would say that is Elephant) and perhaps I should give this just 3/5 as I've only played it twice and it's not yet grabbed me as much as the others? Nahh - I know it will and will you too, if you already know of them. Actually, I bought a vinyl copy of De Stijl some years ago because I liked the look of it in that format - it was about the same price as the CD and I've always had a large collection of vinyl anyway... I'd heard a couple of their albums when they had not long been released and decided I'd like that in my collection; found myself playing it very often as I like the rawness and blusey, sometimes noisy edge of the music - and a little wackiness thrown in here and there for good measure too.

So now my 'studio' WS collection is complete (only 6 albums of course) it's onto live recordings next. Maybe I've given some idea of what to expect from this - but how do you describe any type of music unless you're fairly familiar with something similar in that style or genre in the first place? It's likely you'll know a few tracks (anyone out there who wouldn't know the riff to Seven Nation Army - even if you don't know what it's called? Nope.) So you usually (but not always) have an idea what to expect from these guys, but the quirkiness makes it all the more fun to me too.
