The White Stripes: De Stijl

Despite their reputation as garage rock revivalists, the White Stripes display an impressive range of styles on their second album, De Stijl, which is Dutch for 'the style.' Perhaps the album's diversity - which incorporates elements of bubblegum, cabaret, blues, and classic rock - shouldn't come as a surprise from a band that dedicates its album to bluesman Blind Willie McTell and Dutch artist Gerrit Rietveld. Nevertheless, it's refreshing to hear the band go from the Tommy James-style pop of 'You're Pretty Good Looking' to the garagey stomp of 'Hello Operator' in a one-two punch. It's even more impressive that the theatrical, piano-driven ballad 'Apple Blossom' and a cover of Son House's 'Death Letter' go so well together on the same album.
