My brother says that some of their stuff is just a Zepplin rip off? Is that the case? I must admit I can't be arsed with either band.

Agreed. For that reason alone, I haven't even bothered trying to listen yet.

I listened to a pirate tape of Rattle and Hum once through Death Valley. A friend was dating someone's son who had an advance copy.

But I still bought the record!

I'm guessing just about anything today can be closely compared to something that has come before. It's tough to really be original anymore concerning rock 'n roll. But there is no denying Jack has his own style, and he kicks butt live.

Love the Icky Thump video, especially the subtitles

It think it fairly obvious that Jack models himself after Page, and at one point I believed those comparisons to be blasphemy. However, Jack can play a really mean riff, and he is wildly inventive- something of a modern-day version of Page. For these reasons, the comparisons are to some extent warranted; although in my opinion the Stripes are not of Zeppelin's caliber, they certainly are more than inferior imitators.

The new dates are depressing to me... Please, White Stripes, play DC, Baltimore, Philly, Pittsburgh at some point...

I would but I'm stuck on dial up.

I have 6 songs....and they're all pretty damn good. I'm going to stop listening to them now though, till the album is out.

ICKY THUMP!!!!

On OiNK. I'm sure that means it'll pop up on Demonoid in no time.

I'm almost done with my first pass through. If 'Rag & Bone' was a girl, I'd take it out for a nice seafood dinner and lovingly snuggle with it after a night of freaky, freaky intercourse.

Alright, I read on atease it's up on Demonoid, but I've been unable to even access that site right now.

I've got a send space link to the 320 kbps rip and a save file project for a 128 kbps rip I made for the girl I'm seeing. If anyone wants either of those, ask.
