2021 vinyl reissue of The White Stripes’ sophomore album from 2000. Reissued by Sony Music in partnership with Jack White’s Third Man Records.
Named after the Dutch art movement and magazine of the same name from the early 20th century, this is the album that would propel the band into globe-trotting rock and roll prominence, from jaunts to Australia, New Zealand and Japan. the on-point covers of Son House and Blind Willie McTell pair wonderfully with both the minimal downtempo somber numbers and the maximum energy explosions of unadulterated power.
Pressed on 180-gram vinyl and housed in a Stoughton tip-on sleeve, this is undoubtedly the best version of “De Stijl” to hit the shelves.
