Rolling Stone wrote: “There are still only two of them. But now they sound like an army.
The White Stripes made Elephant, their fourth album, in just two weeks with an eight-track
tape machine and recording gear that predates the Beatles. But the Detroit duo walked out
with a work of pulverizing perfection.” Score: 4/5.
Turn Up the Volume: The Stripes‘ best album in my book. A sultry melting pot of
boiling blues crackers and spellbinding ballads injected with an overall razzle-dazzle swagger. Late-night rhapsody from start to finish.
