White Stripes – Get Behind Me Satan

This was an interesting 45 minutes spent in the Man Cave!

Sunday Man Cave Series, Part 5

I do like the White Stripes, but for some reason I never bought this CD. Oversiiiiiight!

Only Blue Orchid, Instinct Blues, and Red Rain sound like the Stripes of old. The rest is acoustic, wonky, experimental, just different. I like different. If they’d just remade White Blood Cells over and over, people would complain about that too. Blue Orchid, My Doorbell, and The Denial Twist were all singles.

This is a fun listen. I like it when bands branch out!

    I have this one. Have a couple of their albums, but prefer his solo stuff. I thought the whole White Stripes gag got old really pretty quick (right after Elephant – which I’m awfy fond of). Certainly by the time they released this one I was convinced they were mostly style and zero substance.

        Raconteurs not so much… I like a few tracks, but that’s about it. I do like the Dead Weather a fair bit, though (Mosshart and Fertita are the draws there).

            No? I’d totally recommend the Dead Weather. He’s the drummer in that one, but they’re pretty excellent (certainly the first two albums).

    After a while for me, all the White Stripes (I almost accidentally typed Shite Stripes, whoops!) albums tend to confuse me as to which songs were on which. But I love so many of their tunes. Jack White — utter genius.
