I'm a huge White Stripes fan, so that means that I have all four full-lengthed albums (The White Stripes, De Stijl, White Blood Cells, & Elephant). Most White Stripes fans can't decide on their favorite album, but I can. It's by far De Stijl. It's the perfect album & all of the songs are excellent.
If I could give this album a higher ranking, I would, but I'm only ranking it out of 5 stars. Most people view the stripes as hardcore alternative rock headbanging nonsense, but Jack & Meg White are talented musicians with a variety of playing styles. This album has blues, hard rock, more mellow songs, & even some country sound in some songs.
Okay, here's my ranking of the songs on the whole entire album, they're ranked on a scale of 1 to 10.

song: My Ranking:
1. You're Pretty Good Looking (For A Girl) 7
2. Hello Operator 9
3. Little Bird 10
4. Apple Blossom 8
5. I'm Bound to Pack It Up 9
6. Death Letter 9
7. Sister, Do You Know My Name? 8
8. Truth Doesn't Make A Noise 6
9. A Boy's Best Friend 6
10.Let's Build A Home 10
11.Jumble, Jumble 10
12.Why Can't You Be Nicer To Me? 9
13.Your Southern Can Is Mine 9

...which I had never heard of. White Blood Cells was the first Stripes album I bought, and once I discovered the genius in that one I went back for the older stuff. The sound here is of a more unrefined garage rock album with an added blues feel to it. Definately more bluesy than White Blood Cells. I can't tell you this is a better than the other albums from them because I think they are all brilliant in their own way. The White Stripes are an amazingly talented band that has only gotten better with each album they put out and they exemplify what music is about. Meg White is not a great drummer but what she can do works well for every song in my opinion. Some notable songs from De Stijl include Hello Operator, You're Pretty Good Looking, Let's Build A Home and my fave from the album Death Letter. I believe they performed that one at the Grammy Awards and it sounded great then as well. So it pretty much sounds like a great garage blues rock cd that is superb, although for me it is # 3 next to their two latest albums. This is nothing short of great though and I know many people have only heard WBC and Elephant, but give this a listen. Im pretty sure you will like what you hear.

Yet abother Song-By-Song Review of a CD
1. You're Pretty Good Looking (For a Girl- This is catchy, though short. it's only about two minutes long.
2. Hello Operator-One of my all time favourite White Stripes songs. This will get stuck in your head.
3. Little Bird-I'm not crazy about this one.
4. Apple Blossom-This a sweet song. It's so cute.
5. I'm Bound to Pack It Up-For those of you who like slow aocustic songs;I'm not a fan.
6. Death Letter-This is a cover of another badn, but it's a really good song nevertheless.
7. Sister, Do You Know My Name?-Another good one, but it's slow.
8. Truth Dosen't Make a Noise-This song is really good. I like it a lot.
9. A Boy's Best Friend-Eh. I don't like this one.
10. Let's Build a Home-Another one of my all time favs! I love this song!
11. Jumble Jumble-The lyrics are stupid, but the music is great.
12. Why Can't You Be Nicer to Me?-This is okay... not the best.
13. Your Southern Can Is Mine-Meg sings! A bit. In the background. Ah, well.
OVER ALL: This is my favourite White Stripes album. If you like them, buy it.

Only a few bands in history have been as consistantly excellent for their first four albums as the White Stripes. The Beatles, The Smiths, and Radiohead are the only three that come to mind(if I left anybody out let me know). The most obvious differences between De Stijl and the self titled album are the songwriting and the production. Jack's writing matured quite a bit on De Stijl, and the production is more polished, yet still raw enough to be considered vintage Stripes. "You're pretty good looking (for a girl)" is a solid opening track and more accessible than "Jimmy the Exploder" from the debut album. "Hello Operator" and "Little Bird" are two classic White Stripes songs. They feature some great blues guitar and Meg's thumping drums provide plenty of rhythm. Jack's voice is awesome as always, and it is a shame that he doesn't get more credit for his terrific vocals. On "I'm bound to pack it up" Jack plays a stand up bass. The song also features violin and maracas. Of course the cover of Son House's "Death Letter" is electrifying(they played the song live at the grammys recently, much to my delight). "Truth doesn't make a noise" is a mid-tempo acoustic piece with a piano accompaniement in a Dylan-esque tradition. "Let's build a home" is one of the best songs on the album. It's fast and to the point with some slide guitar mixed in between verses. They close the album with "Your southern can is mine", a very catchy acoustic blues sing along which is the perfect ending to The White Stripes most bluesy album. It will be nice to sit down and listen to this in about thirty years and just reminisce.
