Hey folks,

I dont know if you guys remember but I got Get Behind Me Satan about two months early as well. I have a friend with a nice connection and I got a promo copy of the entire album.

The biggest thing that this album does is make me appreciate how great the White Stripes are, and mostly just how amazing Jack White really is. Everytime he comes in on a song, or does a solo it takes the song to a new level.

Ill try not to post too many spoilers, but Ill be glad to answer any basic questions that you guys have.

Level and Broken Boy Soliders are my favorite tracks on it, mostly due to the upfront vocals and guitar by Jack White.

Some songs fall flat, but for the most part its a solid album. I think it would sound fantastic live, and judging by the reviews it does evidently.

I feel real lucky, May 16th is right around the corner though!!

ohh and one more thing. I will not share any of the album, I owe it to the band not to have it leaked, and I owe it to my connection.

put it one ebay to see how high it can get

Just out of interest, how exactly do you provide spoilers for a song? "It sort of starts with a dumdeedumdumdaa, then Jack's guitar comes in withe a screeechhwaaawaaawa"?

Oh ok. I was just playing. My imagination isn't good enough to work out a song from a description anyways. :)

Yeah, there was that one on Elephant that started with a dum...dumdum-dum-dumdum...dum.

And in De Stijl, my favorite one goes like tantantan-tananana-na.

Oh, and let's not forget the GBMS one, "dum. dumdum-dum-dum. dum. dum-dumdum-dumdum-dum-dum".

so actually this thread is started for ... ????
letting us know you have the album but you don't leak any of it.
that's a positive thing but you definatly make people jealous.
i don't see the reason for this thread.
therefor if it gets leaked before the release i don't even download it. i only download live-music and i only download officials if it's very, very hard to buy

I was only kidding mate, i'm jealous as hell, but I'm glad some one has got it - I hope we get some good reviews, I guess the press will have it now also.

Sounds cool. I've got a couple questions.

Are there lots of vocal harmonies? Like 3 part harmonies are stuff?

Are there more organ/keyboard driven songs? Are there a few acoustic driven songs?

And finally, is the album diverse? Stylistically, instrumentally, mood-wise, etc?


Anyway, thanks for the info so far!

I feel a little uneasy and see at as somewhat unethically wrong for anybody to be listening to such a monumentous album before the release date. Especially if you are only appreciating it at a 7/10. Just my opinion though...

He's just giving us information about it, lighten up. It's not like he's being all "I have the album nanananannana"

Yeah. It seems that there are guitar and drum solos, but I want to know if Little Jack gets any shining moments. And by bass solo, I mean more than just the intro to Steady.
