Icky Thump

Postby bigken117 » Tue Jun 19, 2007 12:13 am

my iTunes preorder came through 15 minutes ago. I wasn't able to find anything early through my usual services, so I am hearing it all new for the first time. So far it gets ;D ;D Any other Stripes fans in here?

I like a few of their songs. I only listened to the title track of this one and it was OK. I'll probably listen to some more of it today if I can find a torrent.

Big fan of their sound, but after hearing the new single on the radio a bunch of times, its really annoying me now (not from overplay so much as the song isn't that good). I'll give the cd a few listens though before I write it off.

That's how I felt about them when they first came out.
I'll give the new album a listen and see if they can change my mind.

I would say the title track is the 4th/5th best song on the CD...similar to Elephant where Seven Nation Army got the most radio play, but to me it was probably 5th/6th best song on it...
