Dear mother of God I love this album to pieces.

Yeah 'Seven Nation Army' is cool and everything, but...

Recently I saw Jack White at Lollapalooza this year and it was the best set there by far. The White Stripes material he went through was kind of chilling to hear since the band is now gone. Seven Nation Army is a defining song, the most monstrous of riffs of the new century, perhaps the Smoke on the Water of this generation.

I will have to go with "Ball and Biscuit" tho, seeing it live made me realize how much White knows how to control and bend sound as good as a lot of those guitar gods the upper half of ddd index cocksucks daily. The best guitar players are also the best listeners.

also, from the Jack White "Essential Works" section in the guitar forum:

The Defining Three:

"Catch Hell Blues”.
This is exactly the track i would tell people to listen to for Jack White's musical mission-statement: repeated phrases, single-note attacks (a la Neil Young), sloppy delta blues licks (complete with missed notes), loud distorted riffs that weave in and out (and have several variations throughout), shifting levels/tempos, etc. he is not everyone's cup of tea, but you'll probably know if he's for you or not by listening to this.

"Ball and Biscuit"
perhaps the ultimate and most popular defense for most Jack White fans as an example of his talent as a guitarist, mainly because it seems basically designed as a jam for him to improv (i wouldn't be surprised if he improvised it in the studio).the thing that draws me in is the riff and the smaller licks that fill the gaps. the studio version doesn't do justice to his live versions, which you can find all over youtube.

"Seven Nation Army"
the riff that single-handedly made Jack White a guitar-icon and simultaneously made him the most despised guitarist in the world It's the most recognizable riff of the 00s, a throwback to Page/Blackmore riffs, and probably the most overplayed song among beginning guitarists next to "Smoke on the Water" since it was released.

I actually dont care much for Ball And Biscuit and dont really understand why you guys love it so much.

For me probably...

1. Black Math
2. Girl You Have No Faith In Medicine
3. I Just Dont Know What To Do With Myself
4. There's No Home For You Here
5. The Hardest Button To Button
6. The Air Near My Fingers
7. Hypnotize
8. Little Acorns
9. In The Cold Cold Night
10. Ball And Biscuit
11. You've Got Her In Your Pocket
12. I Want To Be The Boy To Warm Your Mother's Heart

1 Ball and Biscuit
2 Little Acorns
3 Black Math
4 I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself
5 The Air Near my Fingers

good call on not including "Seven Nation Army," I can't detach it from its stature enough to really judge it. It is still an awesome song, but if you've been in a guitar store sometime in the past ten years, you know it has now replaced "Smoke On the Water" as the go-to rock riff everyone learns first.
