The White Stripes

Add Date: March 23

Artist: The White Stripes

Album: Under Great White Northern Lights

Label: Warner Bros.

Genre: Rock, blues

Comments: What can I say, it's The White Stripes. Under Great White Northern Lights is the first live record that this dynamic duo has released in its 13-year career. Paired with a concert film of the same name, this record is fast, blistering, and loaded with soul, like just about anything you'd expect from Jack and Meg. The record chronicles shows from the group's 2007 tour of Canada and if you're a big enough fan, Warner Bros. offers a jam-packed box set full of goodies for your perusal.

While my own preferences are for the Stripes' earlier stuff ("Hotel Yorba" all the way!) there's plenty to enjoy on here from across the board. And yes, "Fell in Love with a Girl," "Seven Nation Army," and "Icky Thump" are on here. If you're in the mood for something else, "Black Math" and "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself" are stellar.
