I've finally had a chance to listen to this all the way through a couple of times, and it rocks. I'm loving it.

I'll direct this question to you though I'd welcome anyone's input. My friend's birthday is this week and he's a Ryan Adams and White Stripes fan. Which CD should I get him? I'm listening to Easy Tiger right now and it's pleasant but I'm not getting really excited about it. I haven't bought the White Stipes yet but I like what I've heard and everyone here seems to love it. My friend will buy whichever one I don't get him so I guess it doesn't really matter but...

Would it be completely horrible of me to say Icky Thump? Probably...but I'll still go with it. I just think Icky Thump would be a better gift, as hard as it is to explain.

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way knocking Ryan.

That's what I'm leaning towards, too, especially since I also got us tickets to see the White Stripes in October. It's a big birthday for him and I could give him both the ticket and the CD as a gift since he's really broke right now.

Okay, decision made. Thank you.

Depends on what kind of package we're talking about.

Seriously, that is cool.

Well, he's gay and turning 40...I figured Jack's package is just the ticket.

Little Cream Soda is actually my favourite! It's so warped and crazy Effect and Cause is also drool-worthy. I'm Slowly Turning Into You really reminds me of Zeppelin. Those are my top three at the moment.

My faves:

Icky Thump
You Don't Know...
Conquest
Little Cream Soda
Rag & Bone
I'm Slowly...
A Martyr...
Effect & Cause

Yeah, guess I could have narrowed that down a little more. Actually, I couldn't have.

Well, he thinks it's the end of the world. The turning 40 part.

I'm loving the record so far.
