minimal to the point of sounding monumental, this detroit guitar-drums-voice duo makes the most of its aesthetic choices & the spaces between riffage & the big beat.

in fact, the white stripes sound like arena rock as hand-crafted in the attic. singer/guitarist jack white's voice is a singular, evocative combination of punk, metal, blues, & backwoods while his guitar work is grand & banging with just enough lyrical touches of slide & subtle solo work to let you know he means to use the metal-blues riff collisions just so. drummer meg white balances out the fretwork & the fretting with methodical, spare, & booming cymbal, bass drum, & snare cracks. in a word, economy (& that goes for both of the players).
