Between 2003's hugely successful ELEPHANT and 2005's GET BEHIND ME SATAN, White Stripes frontman Jack White produced Loretta Lynn's Grammy-winning VAN LEAR ROSE and contributed a handful of tracks to the bluegrass-heavy COLD MOUNTAIN soundtrack. While GET BEHIND ME SATAN certainly isn't a country album, it does highlight White's fascinatingly unpredictable nature. With the exception of a few songs (including the blistering single "Blue Orchid"), Jack leaves his electric six-string in the garage, opting to roam around with his acoustic guitar (as on the gentle "As Ugly As I Seem") or settle into a marimba- or piano-led melody. As always, Meg White is on hand with her wonderfully unpolished, cymbal-heavy drumming, providing the perfect foil for Jack's intense, mercurial presence. With its quirky narratives about ghosts, nurses, and Rita Hayworth, SATAN is a restless record, and the duo uses that energy to maximum effect, easily making this the White Stripes' most dynamic album to date.

Spin (p.63) - Ranked #18 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[The disc] feels less like a middle finger than an attempt to insulate the group from the bruising limelight."
Spin (p.101) - "[Jack White] manages to make songs that sound like harnessed truths, which is why the White Stripes generally make the best records in the contemporary world." - Grade: B
Uncut (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 - "White stays true to the band's aesthetic vision, while mapping multiple paths away from stagnation..."
CMJ (No. 916, p.4) - "Seems Jack and Meg have been spending time in the nursery fiddling with their old xylophones and marimbas in between their routine bloozeouts, power-pop aerobics and local band beat-downs."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.60) - Ranked #14 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[L]acerating blues and stricken balladry."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 - "'My Doorbell' is catchier than a four-pronged trout fly. 'Little Ghost' is an Appalachian knees-up straight out of the Harry Smith handbook."
Paste (magazine) - "[T]he album's focused restraint -- White wrote the better part of the record on an acoustic guitar -- achieves the heartfelt timelessness he was clearly after."
