I'm waiting on this from Amazon, but not handling my anticipation very well...

I couldn't help but smile during Conquest..AhaaaAaaaaa!! It's maybe the craziest White Stripes song I've heard since Little Acorns on Elephant

I'm still in listening/absorbing mode, but it sounds pretty great so far

I was going to buy the album while I was in St. John's today. Ended up not being able to, due to being EXTREMELY stoned after a visit to the dentist's office to get my wisdom teeth removed.

I hope I'll be able to find it at the local Wal-Mart tomorrow...must learn all the lyrics as quickly as possible before next month's show!

If I liked Elephant, do you think I'd like this one? I haven't heard anything off it yet, so have nothing to go by.

I don't think I heard more than two songs off "Get Behind Me Satan."

We're listening to it right now. Will it ever be loud enough?

Anybody know anything Corky Robbins who originally wrote Conquest? Anybody heard the original?

Yes

I like this album loads more than Get Behind Me Satan and just about as much as Elephant.

Ha! When I read the first part of that sentence, the "stoned" mention threw me for a second! I thought you were going to say "...at a party" or something

Hope you're pain-free! I've got a feeling our show's going to be incredible...filled with intense head-bobbing. Good thing you took care of those teeth now

You're in the same boat I am. I went through a big Elephant phase a few years ago. It just happened to coincide with a big jogging phase, and ended up as the official soundtrack of intense sweating I loved that album, then the band went off the radar a bit for me...I didn't buy Get Behind Me Satan when it came out, but I'm catching up now. It's got some great songs, like Blue Orchid, My Doorbell, & Take, Take, Take. I think it'll take me a few more listens before I reign Icky Thump in. The thing I love about them is how they improvise, and use a stream of consciousness approach. It's pretty refreshing in a time when so much is over-calculated...I think it'll also translate into a completely original live show.

This should really be written on the album packaging...it could just be signed "LMP," and nobody would even question it

Dude, that's a great idea.

One day I say Elephant is better because it has "Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine" (a very fun song to play on guitar)

Then one day I'll say Icky Thump is better because of "Rag and Bone"

It's so hard

Hee! No, I'm not the stoner type. In fact, today was the first time I've ever been high. When they say "laughing gas", they mean it. I was laughing at everything. My feet, my hands, my mother, the rain on the windows, the moose signs on the highway, the laughing during Brain Damage/Eclipse... If I'd gone to HMV, I would have probably laughed at all the CDs in the shop.

Thanks, I'm pain free right now due to the large amounts of codeine I've been prescribed, but I think I'm in for a bumpy ride tomorrow. And yes, I'm glad I got this done now instead of July. I want to be able to rock out with Jack and Meg at our show without being in agony!

This is the greatest sentence ever.
