With its title a quotation of Jesus from the gospel of Matthew, this is quite possibly the most well-known album with "Satan" in the title, all due respect to the Louvin Brothers.
Recorded on the stairway of Jack White's home in the Indian Village neighborhood of Detroit, this album features marimba, tympani, mandolin and bells, as well as the usual guitar and drums and piano. Described by someone as an "oddball masterpiece," it was not commercially released on vinyl until ten years after its initial 2005 release.
The album won the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in 2006.
Get Behind Me Satan is a weird, compelling collection that touches on several albums' worth of sounds, and its first four songs are so different from most of the White Stripes' previous music - as well as from each other - that, at first, they're downright disorienting... Get Behind Me Satan may confuse and even push away some White Stripes fans, but the more the band pushes itself, the better.
The music is so wild, it could make you weep over how pitilessly the Stripes keep crushing the other bands out there.
