Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Product Description

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of static and surface noise on vinyl LP March 19 2014
Format:LP Record
A very good effort that has a "good mix " on vinyl, but an extremely noisy pressing. I emailed Third Man records, they were very nice and very accommodating, but they admitted that it is on all these pressings.

I'm surprised a vinyl aficionado like Jack White would let this happen. I'm listening to Neil Young's Live at the Cellar Door and it is bone quiet. As always with re-pressings, do your research!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great rock that goes way beyond pop. Creative energy seeping through every pore of each song on this disc. One of the best bunch of tunes since the late Beatles most creative period. Think Beatles for their over-the-top creativity, Nirvana for their gut-felt intensity and Led Zeppelin for their catchy tunes.

Format:Audio CD
This new album is just as strong and fun as the previous three. I love the White Stripes and hope they keep putting out such high quality material. This cd rocks hard all the way beginning to end. It goes to eleven baby!

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I had heard on MTV July 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Firts of all it is a two part band but that means almost nothing. Almost every song has more than one guitar part. I believe Jack White is an amazing guitarist. He may not rip Metalica solos but he plays a good slide and sounds great in my opinion. Sure the drummer is nothing special and the is no bass but that is why i gave 4 stars and not 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD, Plain And Simple. July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I heard Seven Nation Army on the radio, I was amazed, it was one of the only things I had heard all day that was worth listening to. I very much dislike modern music, most of it is done by talentless, repetitive, lame-asses, who don't write they're own music. But the White Stripes are reason for celebration, all their CD's are very good, but Elephant is the most impressive. They have a very distinct sound similar to that of Led Zeppelin (especially Jack White's voice and guitar style), and unlike many other CD's that have only a few good songs and then a lot of fillers, this CD is listenable the WHOLE WAY THROUGH, a very nice change from the norm. Not a single track sounds like another, each is unique. I feel satisfied after listening to Elephant, and I have heard it more than 20 times in a couple weeks. When its done, you are not left wanting more, but in a good way :)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Preferred 'White Blood Cells'.
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Got bored very fast
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.

Just because it doesn't sound like Britney or Puddle of Mudd doesn't mean it isn't uninspired generic garbage. This band is not talented nor original. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars They could do better....
You can tell from a couple of songs that they have talent and are good songwriters, but I think they have much more capability. It can get dull. Read more
