Picked it up today, and it's a PHENOMENAL album. Nobody seems to talk about the White Stripes any more, but they just keep getting better and better with every disc. GBMS incorporates a wider variety of instruments, and the deeper musical base really allows Meg & Jack to experiment with sounds.

Man, I can't get over this album. It'll probably end up being the best of the year.

I agree 100%. I got ahold of it a few weeks ago and It hasn't left my cd player. "My Doorbell" owns.

A lot of people can't get past Meg's drumming, which makes me sad. They have a really good knack of making every song sound different, but still catchy, despite her limitations.

Album of the year.

Meg's drumming makes the band. On the one hand, you've got this outright brilliant eccentric, a guy who'll rock your fucking socks off one minute, belt out a Dolly Parton cover the next, and bust out a marimba the next. Jack White is easily the musical genius of the 21st Century so far. You balance that out with an almost impossibly angelic looking female drummer, who just happens to be the human equivalent of Animal from The Muppet Show. She can't drum, but she kinda can. She can't sing, but she kinda can. She serves no real purpose in the band, but they'd suck without her, pounding away with that serene look on her face.

The best band in the world today. No question about it.

I gotta disagree here. White Stripes have a unique sound, ill give them credit for that, but the songs on this sound like they were written 5 minutes before they were recorded. Cool instrumentation as always, but I was looking for some more substance.

Meg White is actually not a bad drummer at all. I saw the Stripes live a couple of years ago, and was amazed at how good she is. Maybe she can take Ringo's title as underrated drummer of the century.

I have a theory that White Stripes albums are like Star Trek movies. The even numbered albums (De Stijl, Elephant) are far superior to the odd numbered albums (The White Stripes, White Blood Cells). I'm curious to see if Get Behind Me Satan bucks that trend by being good, like Nemesis bucked the Star Trek trend by being awful.
