You don't seem to come around. Push your finger and make a sound.

Musical bliss.

The White Stripes return with their follow up to the 2003 album ELEPHANT. A fantastic collection of brand new songs called GET BEHIND ME SATAN. Rock, blues, country, and piano ballads intermingle to give us what is easily The White Stripes' most eclectic album to date.

Highlights on the album include a bluegrass tune (!) called Little Ghost, the very catchy My Doorbell, the equally melodic Denial Twist, and the stunning closing number called I'm Lonely (but I Ain't That Lonely Yet).

It's another all around excellent work from Jack and sister Meg (who, like on ELEPHANT, gets her own brief vocal solo on the strange Passive Manipulation).

Out in stores on June 7th, be sure to pick one up.

Along with The Gorillaz's DEMON DAYS and Fiona Apple's unreleased EXTRAORDINARY MACHINE, it's one of the years best albums.
