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 Get behind us Feb. 23 2007
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look out, Satan! June 21 2005
By Neil F.
Format:Audio CD
Since the release of 2003's incredible Elephant, Jack White has enjoyed success of a different sort with the film and soundtrack to Cold Mountain, produced Loretta Lynn's mind-blowing comeback CD Van Lear Rose, broke up from a high-profile actress and got married. Somewhere along the way, he apparently decided to grab Meg White, a stack of his favorite Led Zeppelin and bluegrass albums, a marimba and piano, and lock himself in a studio to see what came out.
The results are as amazing as they are confounding. Anyone expecting White Blood Cells or Elephant Part 2 will likely be disappointed with this disc. But for all the Stripes fans who knew there was even more creativity beneath their great garage-blues sheen, GBMS is a sign of exciting things to come. Jack and Meg have combined everything they learned from Jack's foray into bluegrass, while he has developed his own take on Robert Plant's signature vocal delivery. The results are something that isn't quite signature White Stripes, isn't quite Zep and isn't quite Loretta Lynn. Here, rather, is something new and different that the music world is better for having been given.
There's nothing as immediately catchy here as Seven Nation Army or Fell in Love With a Girl, and the album as a whole is less a sonic kick in the arse a la Elephant, as it is an adventure in melodic boundaries. Ultimately though, this disc ranks comfortably amongst the group's greatest efforts.

3.0 out of 5 stars some unexpected gems, but overall sounds lazy Aug. 10 2005
Format:Audio CD
Upon first listen of this album I could've summed it up with one word, LAZY the White Stripes constuct simple songs, but their bluesy side and Jack's lyrics are what attracts me to the music. This album has some interesting twists in it, I really like the "Nurse" for the use of the marimbas...but a lot of the songs sound lazy due to the prominance of the piano on the album. Jack's strongest instrument is definately the guitar and it's not used nearly enough. Even "Instinct Blues" sounds lazy...just drags along with the simplest blues riff...after hearing "Ball and Buscuit" on Elephant I was very excited to hear his next blues song...very disappointing.
It's not a throw away album...the sound was probably intentional and I'll give Jack credit for making such a bold move, his lyrics are always great...and he does break out the slide guitar on "Red Rain" (love his slide work) It'll take more time to grow on me.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!
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

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
