Very Nicely Done
Wow, I have to say that this is one of the best White Stripes tributes I've heard. (I've heard MANY) I own Pickin' on the White Stripes and they are both similar but this one is a litle more classical for those who like that. This is just another version of the White Stripes genius. In fact, there is even a song originally composed on here that was inspired by the White Stripes. Buy this and enjoy!
The Vitamin String Quartet is the greatest tribute music ever made in my opinion, because instead of trying to sound better than the orriginal artist, they truly celebrate what the orriginal artist created. Get these guys combined with Jack White, a beautiful song writer who's talent is often hidden within the raw sound of The White Stripes, and you truly have something special. The translation of some of these songs into strings is quite beautiful considering the difficulty in translating music performed on a single guitar and minimalist drums into an ensemble of stringed instruments. My personal favorites: Seven Nation Army - sheer power of the song is demonstrated with in a perfect arrangment of strings. Hello Operator - this simple, yet rocking guitar riff is once again demonstrated magnificently, while the vocals are also creatively accounted for. We're Going to Be Friends - Coming from one who has tried, this is an incredibly difficult song to cover instrumentally (and have it sound good), due to the repetitiveness of the vocal melody. Yet, VSQ does a surprisingly good job at communicating one of the most sentimental songs of The White Stripes. In short, Candy Cane Children who have a taste for musical eloquence should most certainly buy this album.
I love the White Stripes, and I think this sounds pretty good. I think Fell In Love With A Girl could be better. I also think The Vitamin String Quartet should make a tribute to either Icky Thunp or Get Behind Me Satan (which should be on iTunes!)
