Boomkat Product Review:
When The White Stripes first made their appearance in Peel's Festive Fifty a few years back you'd have been a brave man to place a bet on them ever denting the album Top 40 let alone headlining the main-stage at Glastonbury, yet five years on and here they are; Jack & Meg the chartbusters. Recorded in 14 days and finished a mere six weeks ago, the self produced 'Get Behind Me Satan' has been hailed by many as the band’s masterpiece, seeing a slight departure from the tight guitar/drums “Dogme” style restrictions the band have placed on themselves up until now. The album opens with the current single 'Blue Orchid', a song which belies a familiarity with Marc Bolan and comes across like a less histrionic Bobby Conn. 'The Nurse' follows and is just immense, this is a track that sounds more and more like the Rentaghost theme-tune (honestly!) with every listen, but that unleashes itself with pure spasmodic venom at random points throughout – one of the tracks of the year for me, and with headcrushingly bitter/inspired lyrics to boot.'My Doorbell' pops in fine style while 'Forever For Her (Is Over For Me)' goes for the 'knock it down, build it up' overdub sound, 'The Denial Twist' blends a heady concoction of piano, staccato rhythms and swampy vocals, whilst album closer 'I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)' sees them refreshingly taking it down for a lovely piano led torch song. 'Get Behind Me Satan' (along with it's hilarious Dali-esque cover art - see the booklet picture with Jack seemingly sharing a bus shelter with Trisha) suggests The White Stripes might start living up to their reputation. Really good stuff.
