Biography

Source: All Music Guide

The White Stripes formed on Bastille Day in 1997, aiming to create simple, vigorous rock & roll with little more than Meg White's percussion and Jack White's guitar-and-vocal attack. Meg's drumming was deliberate and straightforward, while Jack's formidable guitar skills paid homage to garage rock, blues, and punk. A former drummer for the ...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best pure rock CDs in years August 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I think the Stripes gave this album the perfect name. De Stijl is the perfect description for their "minimalistic" sound. Bands just don't make music like this anymore. It is difficult to find words to do justice to this album...it is that good. This album has a very heavy blues influence, executed to perfection. My ratings of each song are:

You're Pretty Good Looking - 9 (very poppy, easily accessible)

Hello Operator - 10 (the harmonica is the icing on the cake)

Little Bird - 10 (my favorite, it ROCKS!!!)

Apple Blossom - 9 (Could have been on several Beatles albums)

I'm bound to Pack it Up - 9

Death Letter - 10 (great song, kind of a "rockabilly" sound)

Sister do You Know My Name - 10

Truth Doesn't Make a Noise - 10

A Boy's Best Friend - 10 (I absolutely LOVE this song...very bluesy)

Let's Build a Home - 10

Jumble, Jumble - 6 (I think the weakest song)

Why Can't You Be Nicer to Me? - 10

You're Southern Can is Mine - 10 (super catchy)

I realize that the Stripes' popularity is primarily due to White Blood Cells and Elephant. Those albums are good, but they are not nearly as strong as De Stijl. If you are a White Stripes fan, this is a must buy. For those who believe the Stripes are hype, this CD could change your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chapter two of the gospel of Jack White February 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Only a few bands in history have been as consistantly excellent for their first four albums as the White Stripes. The Beatles, The Smiths, and Radiohead are the only three that come to mind(if I left anybody out let me know). The most obvious differences between De Stijl and the self titled album are the songwriting and the production. Jack's writing matured quite a bit on De Stijl, and the production is more polished, yet still raw enough to be considered vintage Stripes. "You're pretty good looking (for a girl)" is a solid opening track and more accessible than "Jimmy the Exploder" from the debut album. "Hello Operator" and "Little Bird" are two classic White Stripes songs. They feature some great blues guitar and Meg's thumping drums provide plenty of rhythm. Jack's voice is awesome as always, and it is a shame that he doesn't get more credit for his terrific vocals. On "I'm bound to pack it up" Jack plays a stand up bass. The song also features violin and maracas. Of course the cover of Son House's "Death Letter" is electrifying(they played the song live at the grammys recently, much to my delight). "Truth doesn't make a noise" is a mid-tempo acoustic piece with a piano accompaniement in a Dylan-esque tradition. "Let's build a home" is one of the best songs on the album. It's fast and to the point with some slide guitar mixed in between verses. They close the album with "Your southern can is mine", a very catchy acoustic blues sing along which is the perfect ending to The White Stripes most bluesy album. It will be nice to sit down and listen to this in about thirty years and just reminisce.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG I died and went to heaven! March 2, 2002
By .!!.
Format:Audio CD
After buying White Blood Cells, I had decided to buy either this or The White Stripes. I chose this, because it was the only one of the two I could find. Oh my God how pleased am I that I did. This is the best album I've ever heard.
There's no word for this album really apart from Amazing. If you've got White Blood Cells, the third of the albums to come along you'll have some idea of what this band is like. Now take that idea, throw in a big bag of Detroit rock, blues guitar riffs, cheerful harmonica tunes and hillbilly vocals, and you have what can only be described as a joyous...well...mess, of music.
The first track, You're Pretty Good Looking, is fantastic, combining puppy love singing and simple crunchy guitar. Hello Operator introduces the afor-mentioned harmonica, whilst maintaining the great guitareering. From then on it's slower, much more blue, but no less brilliant. These tracks make you feel lazy, until track 10, when it throws once again the rock guitaring and crashy drums at you with Let's build a home. The next track follows its example, and then its back to blues. The last track, a cover of Your Southern Can Is Mine is great, just like the whole damn album.
Just buy it. Please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Peppermint Soul July 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I feel a little ridiculous using the comparison, considering the fact that I *love* most of 'Revolver' and am ambivalent towards most of 'Sgt. Pepper', but I think that the Stripes' latest album 'White Blood Cells' could be likened to the former effort by the Beatles. It shows a fantastically talented band stretching out into new territory, while seeming a taster for even more ambitious things around the corner. 'De Stijl', by that logic, would be the Stripes' 'Rubber Soul', as they incorporate more variables into their stripped-down formula for neo-classic rock.
"You're Pretty Good Looking" is one of the all-time great opening tracks, with stop-start dynamics copped from various punk acts throughout time. "Hello Operator" turns a jump-rope rhyme into a desperate plea. Three-quarters through "Little Bird", it sounds like Jack is mucking with the tape speed as he speeds up and slows down his guitar solo. Other standouts include the weary, acoustic "I'm Bound to Pack It Up", playa-hata call-out "Truth Doesn't Make a Noise" and the screaming noise-fest "Let's Build a Home" that starts out with a tape of a child singing a song he's written, underlining the innocence of the band's lyrics. "Why Can't You Be Nicer to Me?" is about as straightforward and yearning as love songs get.
Throughout the proceedings, Meg White helps hold down the low end by alternately attacking the drum set like John Bonham on a particularly bad mental health day and insistently tapping like Maureen Tucker on some of the Velvets' mellower tracks. Jack White is, simply put, a garage rock virtuoso of the highest order, and pens lyrics like a nine-year-old Bob Dylan. Between 'De Stijl' and Nirvana's unplugged album, I'm now fairly intent on exploring the roots of rock music. The Stripes are historians of the first order and will keep the ghost of rock's glory days alive well into the twenty-first century, doubtless.
