I like it when artists use a recurring phrase or something to that effect throughout their careers. It makes me feel like there's a theme they're trying to get across.

Maybe I'm weird. I know 3 songs on Coldplay's 'X&Y' include a line similar to "If you never try, than you'll never know." That quote is from Speed of Sound, obviously, but it showing up on two other tracks makes it seem like that is a recurring theme in the album and gives it another facet to look at.

It gets a very hearty from me.

Absolutely fucking brilliant. Oh my God, the first listen was a shock but this is just great. I had been raving about X&Y, but now this is truly worth raving about. Could be better than Elephant.

Yes. Yes.

Unfortunately, I think that a lot of people who like the White Stripes will be mildly disappointed.

NPR's review (from the guy who reviews music for the Philadelphia Inquirer) was absolutely glowing. Maybe I'll pick it up when I get paid.

Also, check out AllMusic and Rolling Stone. Both gave 4 1/2 stars, which, if anything, is too low.

I agree with you. After hearing the first few songs today for the first time, I personally even did a knee jerk "this isn't what I was expecting/wanting, so it's awful!!!"-type reaction. After keeping the album in and playing a little more I realized it was fan-freaking-tastic. This album really is just "weird" compared to their past albums, and it's going to be the exact opposite of what a lot of fans like or are expecting. At the same time, I personally feel that this is a far more rewarding album to listen to than some of their others. It's just a great example of doing something different yet still remaining the same band.

I've listened to it twice now today, and given some of the tracks even more listens. It's just that engaging. I recommend people listen to it with an open mind and knowing it's going to be different.

EDIT: See www.allmusic.com 's review of the album for a great "feel" on what the album is like. Reading their review even helped me appreciate the album a little more, calmed my nerves to know that others had the same initial response. Check it out.
