The White Stripes - Elephant
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The White Stripes - ElephantEverything about the Stripes is delicious, from their playful peppermint-candy motif and the clever media prank about Jack and Meg White being siblings (ex-spouses, actually) to the Detroit duo’s thrilling embrace of garage rock and country blues. Their fourth album boasts even more tasty surprises, adding piano, bass and layered vocals to their stripped-down sound—and expanding their repertoire to include everything from Queen-like operatic flourishes to a wacky Bacharach cover. Inspired and loaded with good humor.
