Our guess is that Icky Thump refers to Meg White's no-frills percussion style. Whatever it means, the White Stripes get back to kicking out the jams on an album that recalls the acid rock era. While much of the album echoes early Led Zep (including the folky "Prickly Thorn, But Sweetly Worn"), "Bone Broke" is the kind of 'tardo rock song that the Beastie Boys excel at, "St. Andrew" is the sound of the Beatles going insane, and "Conquest" casts images of Iron Butterfly disrupting the patrons at a Mexican restaurant. And yet it all somehow sounds like the White Stripes.
