I just wanted to take a moment to say that I think that the new White Stripes album, Get Behind Me Satan is a great freakin’ album. If you happened to have read the review of it in Entertainment Weekly, just ignore it. I usually respect the opinion of the guys over at EW, but this time they were way off. They essentially criticize it for being too varied and adventurous, which is exactly what makes it so good.
If you’re looking for an exact copy of past White Stripes albums, Get Behind Me Satan might be a disappointment… there’s not as much guitar. However, if you got into the White Stripes for the same reasons I did – because you found the music interesting, entertaining and at times, challenging in a good way – then you should like it as much as I do.
