"Get Behind Me Satan" is definitely the Stripes' least inspired set of tracks yet. The lyrical content is great here, but many of the tracks drag more than they should and there are a few awful production choices.

Fav Tracks: My Doorbell; The Denial Twist; As Ugly As I Seem; Blue Orchid; White Moon; I'm Lonely (But I Ain't That Lonely Yet)

Least Fav Track: The Nurse

The groups most uninteresting and weak albums yet. Lyrically this album is interesting, but a lot of this album sounds boring. Reminds me of their first album, a lot of the songs sound samey. A few memorable tracks and a bunch of meh tracks.

An album that heavily deviates from the groups original sound or what they had built up to this point. Rather than continue down the track of garage rock, Jack and Meg take a detour into areas like folk, piano rock, and indie rock. This isn't necessarily a bad switch or a good switch in theory, as the duo are creative and efficient enough to successfully go down this route stylistically. However, for those expecting a traditional White Stripes album, you will likely be disappointed.
