A defining event in the garage rock revival, this 2003 album earned platinum and shot to #6 U.S. and #1 U.K. Winning Grammys for Best Alternative Music Album and for Best Rock Song for the #1 Modern Rock 'Seven Nation Army,' Rolling Stone called the album 'a work of pulverizing perfection.' Also on the Modern Rock chart, 'The Hardest Button To Button' reached #8 and 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself' Top 25.
Jokingly referred to as the White Stripes' British album, Elephant is scattered with cultural references that give away the fact it was recorded far from home. Just listen to the lyrics on "Seven Nation Army" ("From the Queen of England to the hounds of Hell") or the album outro, in which someone chips in, "Jolly good, cup of tea?" But while there are new twists here, from Meg White discovering her voice to a tongue-in-cheek threesome with Holly Golightly, Elephant is no great departure for Jack and Meg White. They still push their creativity (and the boundaries of their eight-track) to new heights. Check out the startling, Queen-inspired "There's No Home for You Here." while the deep bass line on "Seven Nation Army" makes it a classic indie dance track. But while some songs fly off into new realms, there's plenty of their trademark straight-up ! bluesy rock, notably the overtly sexual "Ball and Biscuit." And there's Jack's plaintive, resolutely modest and yet theatrical voice. --Caroline Butler --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Detroit band rocks out on this. Jack and Meg are likely insane. Music that pushes boundaries. I suggest you own this onePublished on Nov. 28 2012 by Langer
Your standard White Stripes, twang'n and bashing. It seems to be not quite as creative as "White Blood Cells". I won't say its worse but just a different feel.Published on March 20 2010 by C. N. Griffith
You will enjoy this CD immediately & will get bored with it just as fast. I recommend you download the songs you enjoy from their web site & skip the CD.Published on July 21 2008 by Martine
