The more I listen to this, the more I believe it to be a genuine 5 star album. There really is a beauty to its erraticism- the same type of quality that I find in the White Album.

Just a few more hours before my first Stripes show! I have GA so I hope to be as close to the stage as possible.

Ball & Biscuit, bitches

What an amazing concert....wow, I'm speechless.

My only disappointment was that they didn't play Rag & Bone. Or, rather, they played the first few bars and then switched to another song, whose title escapes me at the moment.

I...REALLY hate this album. That is all. I won't bring any hate, or anything; I just had to get that out of my system.

I have basically enjoyed The White Stripes, over the years, but this one ain't for me. Ugh.

Figures! If it's not The Hold Steady, it's automatically a negative comment.

Aside from maybe two or three other people on this board of whom I can think (apologies, I suppose, if anybody finds him- or herself inexplicably offended by this comment), I don't think that there's anybody around here who listens to as much music as I do. Correspondingly, I also like a good deal more of it than do most.

Well...I just said that I liked the previous output of The White Stripes. Sorry for not only liking their newest...?

Also I started up a threat in praise of the latest Architecture in Helsinki album literally just a few hours ago, and was considering posting something to gush about the newest, amazing SFA LP, Hey Venus!. Since you seem to be the most positive person around these parts, though, I'll cheerily leave it to you.

A few people around these parts need to chill the fuck out, by my reckoning. Go back and re-read the non-confrontational nature of my initial post, realize how fucking insane you are, and then let's have an ice cream sundae over...well, let me think. Of the 20 or so new albums to which I've listened this week, which was my favorite...? I guess it'll have to be over DJ IYS's Step the Fuck Off My Nuts. That shit is dope.

Leaks aren't my bag nowadays, but this one excites me quite a bit. I love SFA.

I'm fucking insane then? The vast majority of your posts that I've read have only been negative. Forgive me for wondering if there is any music you actually enjoy.

I never claimed to be the most positive person around here. By no stretch am I even close to it. Maybe before you get all riled up again, you can reread my post and realize it wasn't really confrontational either.

Whatever, I think the album is awesome. It sounds better to me with every listen.

White Stripes in nine days!

That's the original. You've since revised it to sound less confrontational by changing your mind--first I only put things down and praise nothing, now I mostly put stuff down but praise a few things. I'm done with the thread and this "dicusssion," and while I harbour no ill will (I actually agree with your taste, a lot of the time, and always read what you have to say about things, because you normally come across as well-read musically open-minded), but I'm certainly done with this thread. I'm above this kind of petty revisionism and bickering. Like I said, I didn't come to bring the hate, but rather TO SHARE MY OPINION ABOUT AN ALBUM IN A THREAD DEVOTED TO DOING JUST THAT.

I'm sorry that I don't like Icky Thump, but it's just not my cup of tea. I'll take De Stijl or even White Blood Cells any day of the week. It's not terrible...I just don't think it has any notably strong songs. I thought that Get Behind Me, Satan was surprisingly uneven, but its highs were heavenly. This one sounds to me very plateau-ish.

The End.

Peace be with y'all.

Revised it? I didn't touch either one of those posts other than a touch up to the first one that obviously occurred within a minute of it being posted. Nice try though.

You brought the hate by saying you HATED the album in your original post. Did I not read it right?

See ya until you crap in another thread!
