You're not wrong. In fact, you may be right.

I've been listening the shit of that album and really enjoy about 90% of the material (not a fan of 'You Don't Know What Love Is' - too country and radio-friendly). It just rocks outright. No pretence.

I seem to have located this on my HD. I'm giving it a first listen right now.

Amazing. Not as good as the last one.

I dunno man...I like "Get Behind..." an awful lot and I think, as you have said before, it is the most structurally and conceptually tight of their albums, but "Icky Thump" gives me some serious R&R wood. There's nary a song I don't dig, hard. I'm calling it a draw.

Anyway you slice it though, they're getting better all the time.

Yeah, it's definitely in the Top Four for me, with the first two and GBMS. Parts of it are just searing.
Have you heard the Q Festival show from a few weeks ago that's making the round? That's almost ridiculously intense. As a live band, they're really at their best now.

I have not heard this. Would like to.

They are an amazing live band - shivered my timbers they did. "Blackpool Lights" once seemed impossibly great, but now it's an authentic document of a powerful and genuine band.

And Blackpool Lights is an off night, comparatively!

Sums up my thoughts perfectly. I prefer the style of White Blood Cells and Elephant, and dig this album more than Get Behind Me Satan. But GBMS's always growing on me.

Rag & Bone...So fucking awesome. The "yeah-yeah-yeah's" at the end... Shocked

Yep, Rag and Bone just may be the defining White Stripes song.

Fuck me. That's awesome shit! Matinee et al grab this if you haven't already.

Thanks again, Mr. Wagner!
