De Stijl is one of the best guitar albums ever.

Icky Thump and the self-titled are my least favorites by a good distance. The other four are really good/brilliant.

Agreed.

Satan is half-baked as he totally rushed the recording process.

Didn't he "rush" through every recording process with the White Stripes? My understanding was he pretty much recorded all of those in a few weeks.

Steve Lillywhite and will.i.am would have unlocked its true potential.

Nope.

The White Stripes: Get Behind Me Satan | Album Reviews | Pitchfork

Get Behind Me Satan was written, recorded, and released at an extreme breakneck pace. As legend has it, none of these tracks were even fully written before the band entered Third Man Studios in March, and unfortunately, several songs bear the scars of their needlessly rushed delivery.

And Icky Thump got a higher score, FWIW.

Elephant was recorded in two weeks. White Blood Cells was recorded in four days.

Sounds like Elephant was overcooked then.

Robert Christgau likes them all, so why are we arguing?

If was written AND recorded hastily. You should be able to see how that affected the album.

I associate the "issues" with that album more with him stepping outside of his comfort zone instrumentally than with anything relating to the time they spent on it. He always worked quickly on White Stripes albums. That was just the first one where he actively tried to stay away from the electric guitar.

All the White Stripes albums are gold, in my opinion. Amazing they could take the same basic palette and make something fresh out of it every time out.

Years on from all of the initial releases, the only one that doesn't really sit perfectly in my mind is Icky Thump. I think it's probably their worst, although I do love a number of the tracks on it.

The rest, yeah, are pretty perfect in my mind. Classics. I adore them. Especially WBC and Elephant.

Fuck it, I'll start off the stupid chain of people posting their rankings:

1. White Blood Cells
2. Elephant
3. Satan
4. De Stijl
5. Self-titled
6. Icky Thump

Ranking the Jack White non-Stripes albums:

1. Consolers of the Lonely
2. Broken Boy Soldiers
3. Lazaretto
4. Blunderbuss
5. Horehound
6. Sea of Cowards

^ None of the six above are on par with any of the six Stripes albums, by the way.

Also, Laz, why the fuck do you still use other people's opinions in arguments? Who gives a fuck? It's fucking pathetic. Especially Pitchfork. So stupid, and so weird from you when you're clearly very smart and an exceptional thinker. Most of the time.
