Out-of-print in North America since 2005, the utmost care was taken in presenting these White Stripes reissues in the best way possible. They have been mastered from the original analog master tapes, the first time this process had been used for any of these titles. Each record is pressed on 180-gram vinyl, again, the first time any of these albums have been afforded this superior vinyl weight. The artwork is printed on the deluxe old-style, tip-on sleeves at Stoughton.
"Minimal to the point of sounding monumental, this Detroit guitar-drums-voice duo makes the most of its aesthetic choices and spaces between riffage and the big beat. In fact, the White Stripes sound like arena rock as hand-crafted in the attic. Singer/guitarist Jack White's voice is a singular, evocative combination of punk, metal, blues, and backwoods while his guitar work is grand and banging with just enough lyrical touches of slide and subtle solo work to let you know he means to use metal-blues riff collisions just so." - All Music Guide
