Smoke Notes

The Detroit Two storm back from a rumoured disbanding with an antidote to the piano-balladry of their last album, Get Behind Me Satan - Icky Thump has psychedelic bagpipes and trumpet, but only the fuzziest of Hammond in the keys department. Plundering the UK for a bit o'history this time round, the Pearlies/Faces/Highlands shtick fronts up to an Americana/Led Zep/Bar-room smackdown surprisingly well.
More than anything else, this sounds like the first album the White Stripes have enjoyed recording for a while, with a return to the tongue-in-cheek patter and thumps n' riffs of earlier recordings – and all this knocked out in a Nashville studio over the space of an (un-precedented-ly long by WS standards) three weeks. Consequently, it's a party of an album, with enough metaphorically self-referential lyrics to keep the fans guessing about any more post-V2 albums, and plenty of blues-inspired guitar lines and stomping distortion to keep everyone else happy.
Highlights include the instantly-familiar 'You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told)' and this album's quirky cover song, 'Conquest' - a Corky Robbins tune popularised in the fifties by Patti Page - that receives a flamenco and horns yeller of a makeover. A return to garage-riffing form - Recommended.
