The White Stripes have brought real rock back. Jack has got his intense guitar riffs back. While listening you think you have been sent back to the 70's. It's a wonderful change from all the other so-called rock that has been getting released the past few years. We need more of this sound!

Product Overview

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!

Review Whether howling or crooning, picking or ripping, Jack comes across as earnest and fully invested in every ICKY moment. Grade A

Review 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".

Review '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

Review ...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.

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

Review 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.

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

Quotes
Barry Nicolson - NME 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.
Billboard Magazine - June 23, 2007 The Stripes have never had so much fun.
