I have to agree, unfortunately, with "A music fan" on this one. I am an avowed, obsessed Candy Cane child myself, but when I heard this single (well, the B-sides at least) I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. "Blue Orchid" is an incredible, thumping rock song, but the B-sides "Who's A Big Baby" and "Though I Hear You Calling..." are simply bizarre.
When I listened to "Who's A Big Baby" my first reaction was "What the fudge?" (or something like that...). I was embarassed just listening to this song; I cannot believe that Jack White -- musical genius that he is -- had the balls to actually release this appalling piece of claptrap and to admit to having created it... But on the other hand, perhaps that's the point... and he's playing a big joke on all of us. After all, the song is pretty funny in a cringe-inducing sort of way...
"Though I Hear You Calling..." has potential, it's just that Jack unfortunately decided to ruin what could have been a powerful, haunting blues / bluegrass song by adding horrid chipmunk-pitched backing vocals to the mix, making a joke of an otherwise excellent piece of music... And I really wanted to like this song! Maybe it'll be good live?
The live "...In Your Pocket" is a relief to hear after that; a comforting return -- at the end of this noodle-scratcher of a single -- to the classic, safe, White Stripes that we all know and love. But like "A music fan" pointed out, this track and "Blue Orchid" don't really redeem the rest of the cd, or make it worth purchasing.
My advice is, download "If You Hear Me Calling..."; stay the hell away from "Big Baby" (unless you need a good laugh); and, if you love "Blue Orchid" (which of course you must!) go out and buy "Get Behind Me Satan". That's definitely worth your while, and your money.
