Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE WHITE STRIPES

Icky Thump

2007-07-30

The new album from The White Stripes proves to be their best work to date. Equipped with their simple line-up of guitar and drums, Jack and Meg continue to make music that not only appeals to the masses, but also to the underground. This just isn’t the typical rock album that the White Stripes are known for, this time they blend in more blues, punk, old Mexican western music, and even some world beat sounds generate the beauty of this album. Check out tracks 1 “Icky Thump”, track 3 “300 M.P.H. Torrential Outpour Blues”, track 4 “Conquest”, track 9 “Rag & Bone”, and track 12 “Catch Hell Blues.” – Lane Zoerhof
