Remarkable albums from the past…
‘White Blood Cells’ by THE WHITE STRIPES
Released: 3 July 2001
PITCHFORK review: “White Blood Cells doesn’t veer far from the formula of past White Stripes records; all are tense, sparse and jagged. But it’s here that they’ve finally come into their own, where Jack and Meg White finally seem not only comfortable with the path they’ve chosen, but practiced, precise and able to convey the deepest sentiment in a single bound. It’s hard to know at this point in the game where they’ll head from here, but what matters is right now. And right now, I want to listen to this album again.”
Score: 9/10 – full review here.
TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Pure, stripped-to-the-bone, mind-boggling blues rock extravaganza. Their first step to world fame.
