This is a great CD. All within this one little record they certainly pack a big punch and channel the Beatles ("The Air beneath my fingers"), vintage blues ("ball and biscuit"), the Velvet Underground's Mo Tucker ("in the cold, cold night") while still keeping everything completely original. Truly the White Stripes are like no other band-- sure, you can call them gimmicky and simple-- but that's what makes them so unique and sets them apart from all the other over-produced, filtered-through Kurt Cobain wannabes on MTV.
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.

Many people yet to listen to Elephant may believe that the claim of this album being one of the best ever made may be ridiculous or even just plain ignorant. You must listen to this album. The White Stripes made three very good stripped down garage rock records prior to Elephant but this is BY FAR the best yet. Every song will surprise you because they range from blues to country to punk to straight up Led Zeppelin rock. AMAZING! That is the only word that can sum up the first note of Seven Nation Army to the very last note of the closing track, It's True That We Love One Another. Jack White even pulls off amazing solos wich sound like the electricity is actually flowing through his fingers. The really cool thing is that the White Stripes recorded the whole thing without computers and using only back-to-basics equipment. Some skeptics point out the fact that Meg White's drumming is minimalistic which is true. However this never seems to dawn on you while listening to Elephant because the songs are just too good. In fact the simplicity mixed with the great influences of Jack White as well as his knowledge of music and sheer talent are what makes the record so great and at times so beautiful. The White Stripes are the closest thing my generation has to a legendary band such as Led Zeppelin. I realize that many people need to develope a liking to this band because of the complete junk we are used to and are fed by MTV and others. Don't miss out on this album and this band. I purchased this album in April of 2003 and I am still listening to it regularly now in the summer of 2004. Great songs. Great album. Great band. Elephant is not an album, it is a work of art.

... rough, varied, and rockin.'
This is the first and so far only White Stripes album I've heard. I heard "Seven Nation Army" on the radio, and decided I had to buy it.
First: Reading several harshly negative reviews here about Meg and Jack White's limited technical talent reminded me of an argument I once heard about who is more "talented," techno-artist Moby or the old Canadian rock trio Rush. One debater asserted that the members of Rush "really know how to play their instruments," while Moby mostly programs electronics. Therefore, he argued, the members of Rush have more "musical talent."
However -- Rush has a limited cult following, and are an acquired taste at best. Whereas Moby puts out some really catchy, melodious and/or haunting songs. That has to count for something. It ain't all technical virtuosity, folks.
What I liked about this CD is (1) it's catchy but raw, never bubble-gummy poppy -- I have a low threshold of pop -- and (2) the variety of styles displayed. Like head-banging garage rock? Blues? Ballads? Folk? It's all here.
1) Seven Nation Army: Great opener. Maybe Meg "can't play drums," but that doesn't stop this song from pounding itself into your head forever.
2) Black Math: This rocker grabs you by the ears and forces you to bob your head violently. Faintly Led Zepplinesque.
3) There's No Home for You Here: Intro somehow reminded me of the Beatles. Not bad, but I didn't like it as much as most other tracks.

4) I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself: Softer, OK.
5) In the Cold, Cold Night: Meg sings this bluesy, sexy, smokey, slower number.
6) I Want to Be the Boy Who Wins Your Mother's Heart: A guy is afraid his girlfriend's mother doesn't like him, so he becomes desperate to impress her -- the mom, that is.
