Hello. I'm thinking of buying White Blood Cells by the White Stripes, or, Broken Boy Soldiers by the Raconteurs. I am a fan of classic and new rock and I happened upon the White Blood Cells album. I think it's their best album. Can anyone recommend it for me?

Modern rock forum would be better than here.

But White Blood Cells is a good cd

My least favourite album by the Stripes is WBC. All the albums are good, but there seems to be soemthing missing from it. I'd suggest Elephant or Icky Thump.

All good stuff in my opinion, but Elephant or WBC's is a good entering point for the world of Jack White I think.

Another vote for Elephant - very, very good album, and accessible.

The unwashed masses tend to fixate on 7 Nation Army, but half the album is truly great. The other half's very listenable, too.

I agree. Raconteurs>White Stripes.

But more importantly, I would recommend Jack White never go out of his way to look like Zorro again.

By the way, does he make anyone else here think of Tim Burton movies?

^He didn't have the Zorro look when I saw him, it was just a... theme for GBMS really.

And not really. Although he can look freaky at times.

Elephant's the only White Stripes album I've got, but some of the songs are real stand-outs. Hardest Button To Button, and the closing one with the British lady, especially.

Then there's a few, as in literally 2 or 3, that are just cheesy.

That should be true, but the songs (At least on the first album, can't wait for the new one) are of a lesser quality that the Stripes.

No way, dude.

not at all, every song on Broken Boy Soldiers is amazing where as when I listen to the White Stripes it feels like some songs are just there for filler purposes.

That's pretty much the way I feel about it. There's only a few songs on each White Stripes album that I'm actually excited to hear. And I generally dislike Jack's voice, so it't nice to hear someone else to sing with him. The only song on BBS that's not really to my liking is "Blue Veins." But that's just because it doesn't really fit, not that it's a bad song.

For me yes... Live I can't comment, but every single White Stripes record > Broken Boy Soldiers.

The only albums I really think are better than Broken Boy Soldiers are White Blood Cells, De Stijl, and Get Behind Me Satan.

imo, the best white stripes album is their self-titled.
track 12 is good fun.
either that, or elephant.
#22
Elephant is very accessible, you can try the De Stilj (Hello Operator is awesome).

For Broken Boy Soldiers, it's a very good moder rock, but if you're not convinced, try watching a few videos on youtube... (bang bang especially). The record doesn't do them credit I'm afraid...

De Stijl is the best, but pretty much every White Stripes album is great.

Heh, I recently put my White Stripes album (Minus Icky Thump since i haven't put it on my PC) collection on this P.C. Great to listen to them again. There's No Home For You, I that one now.
#25
You should definately start out with Elephant or White Blood Cells. However, Icky Thump and De Stijl are also great albums. Their Self Titled album is also good, but it's not the greatest starting point. Whatever you do, make sure You really like the White Stripes before trying Get Behind Me Satan. Broken Boy Soldiers is also very good
