Those songs are definite highlights, but I'd still probably rate the whole album a bit higher than "meh". I'm not much of a White Stripes fan, so I slept on this album for while...but I'm glad I finally checked it out.
Steady As She Goes and Broken Boy Soldier are about the only things that save this album for me.
After quite a few listens I'm pretty convinced it's pretty meh.
someone please download the live show from newcastle england and tell me they arent fantastic.
Broken Boy Soldier is such a tremendous song when they play it live, and blue veins gets taken to a whole new level.
But the more i've listened, the more its become neutral towards me.
I'd love to see em live though.
