The White Stripes – Elephant

The White Stripes

“Elephant”

In short, this is Jack White’s album to flex off his guitar chops. And when you have only two people in a band, it’d be easy for the second person to detract, but Meg proves why she is so underrated – a different drummer may have either not been able to keep up or would have gotten jealous and tried to be over the top to show up Jack. The strangely well-known “Seven Nation Army” was an instant way to get sucked in, but there are 13 others arguing for superiority (and most of them win that argument).

Grade: A-

Favorite Track: Ball and Biscuit
