The White Stripes are back with the most bombastic album they've ever produced! While revealing the band's roots in American folk music, Icky Thump is an explosive, revolutionary assault that brings together garage rock, every blues style of the past 100 years, nouveau, and flamenco. This is truly a modern rock and roll masterpiece!

"The White Stripes are more than just a band, they're a grand design in perpetual progress, always messing with their sound and your expectations, yet staying true to the original vision. From the actual writing and recording process to the minutiae of deciding which outlandish style of clothing should define the album, every White Stripes record is imbued with the kind of rich attention to detail that makes a mockery of its seemingly-carefree creation.  Barry Nicolson - NME
"The Stripes have never had so much fun.  Billboard Magazine - June 23, 2007

Muze PNote Following the arty explorations of its predecessor, GET BEHIND ME SATAN, ICKY THUMP finds everybody's favorite platinum-selling, post-modern garage-rock duo returning to their bang-and-stomp rock-&-roll roots. The marimbas and pianos of the former are kicked to the curb in favor of the kind of Led Zeppelin-in-a-trash-can riffs on which Jack and Meg White built their cooler-than-ice reputation.
Muze PNote There's an overwhelming sense of urgency and catharsis on most tracks, as on the title cut, where Jack's Robert Plant-ish wail falls into a near-rap full of breathless cadences. That dirty, primal groove evoked by said title is the organizing principle of the album, sweaty blues-rock writ large and gritty. Even though there are a couple of brief stylistic diversions when the Whites veer into folkier territory, there's no mistaking ICKY THUMP's status as a thick slab of heavy rock capable of handily crushing lesser sonic statements.

Producer: Jack White; Jack White III

Expert Review The White Stripes - Icky Thump - CD
By: Mike D'Orazio Reviews
Published on: 6/20/2007 10:39 PM
Effect and cause: the last song on the new White Stripes album or an explanation of the new White Stripes album? Effect: listening to Icky Thump repeatedly, several times a day or hour. Cause: Jack and Meg White. Regardless of my circular reasoning and logic, The White Stripes are back and better than ever with Icky Thump, their first studio release since 2005’s Get Behind Me the full review
Expert Review The White Stripes' Icky Thump - CD Review
By: Michael Fraiman Cinema Blend CD Reviews
Published on: 6/21/2007 11:00 AM
The White Stripes are in a constant state of evolution. In their typical fashion, Icky Thump doesn't sound like any of their pre-existing albums; they've gone from bluesy garage rock duo to country rock spectacle in just six albums and 10 years. Call them weird or call them droning (and they get to both on Thump), but boring they are not. the full review

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.69)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Jack hauled more than bagpipes to his garage to make ICKY THUMP, which is easily his loudest album....Like his sometime heroes, Led Zeppelin, Jack White builds monuments."

Rolling Stone (p.110)
- Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Top Albums of the Year 2007" -- "Delta-garage wallop made from the fewest, finest ingredients."

Entertainment Weekly (p.68)
- "Whether howling or crooning, picking or ripping, Jack comes across as earnest and fully invested in every ICKY moment." -- Grade: A

Uncut (p.92)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "By turns direct, quizzical, loose, and intense, it's more eclectic in terms of approach than any previous White Stripes recording."

Vibe (p.72)
- "THUMP is a return to form....It sounds like everything here was written on a guitar, bursting with razor-wire anthems..."

Kerrang (Magazine)
- "[T]he most obvious inspiration throughout is Led Zeppelin....It confirms Detroit's biggest band as a singular talent and a genuinely great American band."

Q (Magazine)
- Ranked #02 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2007" -- "[A] classic White Stripes record."

Entertainment Weekly 9 of 10
Whether howling or crooning, picking or ripping, Jack comes across as earnest and fully invested in every ICKY moment. Grade A

Pitchfork 8 of 10
Icky Thump also treats us to a band that once again seems comfortable with its broken-in sounds, from the reverb-thud hammer of "Little Cream Soda" and the British Invasion 12-bar of "300 MPH Torrential Outpour Blues" to the back-porch ditty of "Effect & Cause". - Rob Mitchum

NME 9 of 10
'Icky Thump' is brilliant, there's no way around that. We've come to expect nothing less from The White Stripes, but it still sends a jolt down the spine when you hear them at the very apex of their abilities. Some might consider this record a little too eclectic, zipping as it does between genres and styles like a red-and-white magpie, but it'll take a monumental effort by any band this year to top it - Barry Nicolson

Rolling Stone 7 of 10
...that's the scoop on the architecture here. Jack hauled more than bagpipes to his garage to make Icky Thump, which is easily his loudest album - maybe he found a beat-up Marshall stack somewhere or a tube amp forgotten by history. Although the new constructions don't entice as consistently as they should, their noise stays with you. And what that noise stands for is itself. - Robert Christgau

Blender 9 of 10
It's the sound of a band not stretching out so much as digging in: burrowing deeper into loamy soil they know well

Pitchfork 8 of 10
The highest highs of Icky can't quite reach the altitude of the band's breakthrough singles, but some of that inadequacy is tempered by the group's more robust sound.

Pop Matters 8 of 10
The new album manages to hone the at-points-aimless progressive aspirations of Get Behind Me Satan into sharp, clear-cut musical growth

The New York Times 7 of 10
Its rock is louder, its campiness richer. - Ben Ratliff
