WHITE STRIPES - Under Great White Northern Lights 2LP
The White Stripes are known for their unpolished tunes and these concerts are no exception. The guitar chops are every bit as rough, the drums as well, and the vocals are many times more raw here than they are on any of their albums. This does hurt the quality a bit as Jack singing out of tune or hitting wrong notes entirely occurs more often than one would prefer. Part of this is the fact that he does not have the studio safety net, but I am not sure he really cares. Judging from his energy, I would say he would much rather trade musical technicalities for raw energy. The album title hints at a few references, the most obvious being the fact that all tracks are taken from Canadian shows, although not one single show.
