    the new white stripes album?
    I heard seven nation army on sirius a couple weeks ago, and since then couldn't help myself, I tried to hold out but had to hit kazaa for some previews, so far I think this album will be outstanding [​IMG]

    I'm really looking forward to Elephant. If Seven Nation Army is any indication this should be a killer album.

    Me too! I'm assuming there will be a tour in support of the CD?

    I caved and downloaded weeks ago.

    It is indeed very excellent. Like their other three albums, I'm finding it to have a very high "re-listenability" factor. I'll certainly be at the store tomorrow though to pick it up. I've read some interesting things about how it was recorded. No post-1963 (I think that's the date) technology used... both instruments and recording. Sounds it too.

    And how's this for funny... the first notes played on the album are played on... ready... a bass.

    I'll also be seeing them again soon... April 20th at the Orpheum in Boston. Look for me around about the 5th row... [​IMG]

    This album is indeed great. It's a masterpiece and, in my opinion, the best thing The White Stripes have recorded to date. I have been listening to it non-stop for over a month now, and not only have I not gotten tired of it, but I am extremely excited about the official release today! That should tell you just how good this album really is.

    Whats even cooler is if you put all the different covers together they are a map to the Master Sword in Zelda, that info is right off their website. I'll be buying both the CD version for the car and work and the album version for home.

    Their tour schedule looks like the first few US dates are just promo shows and then they head to Europe and then hopefully will be back in the states for a full tour.

    PS - If you guys like the White Stripes, I recommend you check out the Ravonettes, I bought their CD last night at Best Buy for $4.99 and its incredible!

    The Ravonettes are very cool but they sound more like a two-person Hives to me.

    Yeah Best Buy and indie music are a good thing. I bought White Blood Cells there for $7.99 when it first came out and I got Sparta's full length album for $6.99. Also got The Hive's VVV for $9.99 when it first came out.

    PS - Elephant rocks my socks.

    Just got it.
    Meg sings! Seven Nation Army rocks. The last track is cute given the intentional ambiguity of their relationship.

    What's up with the rear track listing? What is the column after the title of each song? After Seven Nation Army it has "148-A01".
    Why the "Side A" and the red 3's?

    I believe the six different covers are only on the vinyl edition of the album. All cd copies have the standard cover, as far as I know.

    Listened to Elephant about 5 times already. By far their best since their 1st album. I really love it.

    Steve,

    Thanks for the info... why two albums? Are there extra tracks on the vinyl version? The CD is just under 50 minutes long and I would think that would fit on a single record (then again, it's been a long time since I've even held a record [​IMG]).

    hehe the irony is I haven't bought the CD yet. I have the MP3's I broke down and sampled weeks ago, they sound like they were ripped from vinyl somehow, maybe it's just a really crappy job...
    I liked the album a lot at first, but my interest has faded. I'll still buy it though. Maybe I'll get it on vinyl. Just what I need, another hobby [​IMG]

    This is what Jack White said about the vinyl version:
