Maybe The Strokes will take the lead with Room Of Fire in 20/10/2003...!?
Seven Nation Army - 10/10 Infectious beat, great guitar and an awesome beat.
Black Math - 10/10 One of my favorite tracks, rocks very hard, I love the guitar work in all of these songs, but this in particular.
There's No Room For You Here - 10/10 Cool, very good guitar. Kinda funny lyrics
I Don't Know What To Do With Myself - 10/10 A real thrasher. Rocks REALLY hard near the end
In The Cold Cold Night - 10/10 One of the more plesent tracks, nice lyrics and good to hear Meg singing. Quite refreshing
I Want To Be The Boy To Warm Your Mother's Heart - 10/10 More mellow, kinda like a masculine version of In The Cold Cold Night. This, In Your Pocket, and Cold Cold are the three chillin' middle tracks.
You've Got Here In Your Pocket - 10/10 Great lyrics, nice acoustic guitar, now is where the CD eases out of the mellow middle part.Read more ›
I really feel like I must address this whole "they can't play their instruments" thing. First of all, sure there are kids in my high school who are 12 years younger than Jack and amazing guitar players. Sure, someone can say they could kick Meg's ass on drums-- but the difference is, the White Stripes have put out four albums, written many many original songs, brought back rock'n'roll in radio's time of need, and realized what is most important-- creating something raw, with energy and feeling, no matter how "minimal" it is. I think Meg is a great drummer, and that's because she knows exactly what to put into the song. So what if she plays simple beats? I truly don't think some fancy guy who could play a million drum fills would complement Jack's guitar playing and singing as well as Meg does. I even read an interview with Jack and he said that he's tried playing with other drummers and it just doesn't sound right. I think that the White Stripes deserve all the attention and certainly all the "hype"... they are talented musicians because they realize what makes rock'n'roll music truly GOOD.
