5.0 out of 5 stars Their best yet! June 10 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Don't listen to the other reviewers; this album is totally amazing! Weird, yes, but very catchy and appealing. The Stripes dip into country, folk, Jackson 5-style pop/soul ("My Doorbell"), spaced-out later Velvet Underground folk/rock ("As Ugly as I Seem," which sounds a lot like the Velvets' "Lady Godiva's Operation"), mixed in with the usual Zeppelin-style blues. Unlike their previous albums, this one doesn't fall off in the second half, although "Instinct Blues" is a bit formulaic for them. And each song is completely different. At the same time, they keep their spontaneous sound; in spite of the more varied instrumentation, this album still sounds like Jack and Meg White jamming and having fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing something June 9 2005
Format:Audio CD
I think that something is organization. Sure a few songs are catchy and enjoyable, but some are just irrelevent to the whole album.
Believe me, I like weird and spontaneity but I don't think this is it. I guess because I liked Elephant that I would like this. I'm not quite sure about it yet. Maybe it grows on you.
As said in the other review, I payed $9 and got a free cd, the blue orchid single which has 4 songs on it. (Blue orchid is great)
I suggest trying to listen to it before you buy it, it's not for everyone.

Pretty sure Jack and Meg are mentally ill, but YOLO. Their music is fabulous..creative, innovative, and totally original. Detroit rockers are pretty effective here

2.0 out of 5 stars My review Aug. 4 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off I've been a big White Stripes fan since I saw them on SNL a few years ago. After that I immediately went out and bought their first three albums, listened to them lots and was hooked. Same with #4 when it came out. And I love their DVD too.
But I thought this CD was just OK. I listened to it once, and then put it in the library for rotation. When I get a new CD that I like alot I listen to it everyday for three weeks straight. Sadly that was not the case this time.
Although I didn't like this CD, I like supporting musicians as they experiment and grow. Better luck next time!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Last Four Were Better! June 10 2005
By NB
Format:Audio CD
This album is ok. It's not bad, but there is something lacking. The last four albums were better than Get Behind Me Satan. The other albums are known for their impact of blues/garage rock revival. This album has only little of that. Maybe, because I only listened to it a couple of times, I'm not used to it-but the other four albums had better written songs. Most of the songs on this albums are just pure fillers.
If the Stripes do release a 6th studio album, I hope it is better than this album!

3.0 out of 5 stars Get behind us Feb. 23 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Sooner or later, it had to happen. The White Stripes have made an album that is Not Great.

Granted, it's not terrible either. But "Get Behind Me Satan" is perhaps the weakest album the Stripes have yet put out, after four albums of solid, bluesy rock'n'roll. And what is wrong with it, exactly? It feels unfinished, like a wonderful album that needs another six months to reach its potential.

It opens with a dark, sludgy riff that cycles around itself several times, before Jack White's high voice slips in: "You got a reaction/You got a reaction didn't, you?/You took a white orchid/You took a white orchid -- turned it blue..." Then he launches off into a string of embittered snaps, telling an unnamed lover that her lips "taste sour."

It's followed by a grim string of tropical-tinged rock, bluesy rhythms, murky ballads and some slightly creepy country-flavoured songs. There's even a song that is played only on drums and piano, with Jack singing wistfully about dying friends, pictures, memories and so on.

With that tone in mind, the White Stripes manage a few more sizzling rockers, but seem to be leaning more on the slower songs toward the end. Though they rouse up a blistering blast of rock'n'roll in "Red Rain," the melancholy end to all this is the mournful "I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)," with its meandering piano and sorrowful vocals.

Whether you like them or not, it has to be admitted that the White Stripes have become a major force in modern rock'n'roll, to the point where other bands rip them off. Their rough, raw, bluesy sound has gotten them fans of all types, and unlike many rock groups, they actually have some decent rock (REAL rock, not pop!) to back them up.

But the fact is, these songs don't really feel finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Album June 11 2005
By SusieQ
Format:Audio CD
The song flow on this CD is fantastic with one track leading right in to the next. Written more as a cotinuous story rather than 13 individual tracks, Get Behind Me Satan provides a great listen. The best part for me is that the band hasn't stagnated, and experiments with some new instruments, sounds and genres. I loved it on the first listen.

Guaranteed to be the "White Album" for the White Stripes.

A keeper for sure.

Get Behind Me Satan is a pretty solid album. Those looking for a strong rock album may not like this, mainly because for the most part, this isn't the typical White Stripes. Read more
