Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/25/03, p.111) - Included in Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2003"

Rolling Stone (4/17/03, p.102) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...There are still only two of them, but now they sound like an army....Equal measure of Lightnin' Hopkins' crude strum, Marc Bolan's sequined boogie and the cut-'n'-thrust song hooks of the Buzzcocks..."

Spin (5/03, pp.107-8) - "...A remarkably good record, quite possibly a great record....This is not garage rock; this is art rock: And that's a compliment..." - Grade: A

Entertainment Weekly (12/26/03-1/2/04, p.140) - Ranked #1 in Entertainment Weekly's 2003 "Records of the Year"

Entertainment Weekly (4/04/03, pp.98-99) - "...Jack is a top-notch frontman, a charismatic yowler with a seemingly endless supply of brilliantly simplistic guitar riffs that often find fresh musical twists on tired rock & roll cliches..." - Rating: B

Q (01/01/04, p.84) - Ranked #1 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums of 2003" - "[A] record that made white-boy blues sound like pop music for the first time in over 30 years..."

Uncut (01/04, pp.84-7) - Ranked #23 in Uncut's "Albums Of The Year 2003"

Uncut (5/03, pp.94-5) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...ELEPHANT features a group at their peak, rejoicing in basic forms while bursting beyond their limitations....They are quite simply in a league of their own..."

Magnet (4/03, pp.109-111) - "...It sounds warm and well-aged....At the core is Jack's increasingly stunning songwriting..."

CMJ (12/29/03, p.4) - Ranked #1 in CMJ's "Top 10 of 2003"

CMJ (04/07/03, p.8) - "...With Meg's perfectly imperfect drumming and Jack's Detroit wail excavating Jon Spencer or Plant or Willie Dixon, the divinely sloppy and unadorned ELEPHANT is RAW POWER with a GED..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.67) - Ranked #8 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "Emotionally, the needle rarely drops beneath total overload."

Mojo (Publisher) (01/01/04, p.62) - Ranked #1 in Mojo's "The Best of 2003"

Mojo (Publisher) (4/03, pp.88-90) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Where ELEPHANT differs from what has gone before is in terms of quality. It's just better all round: consistently better songs, more explosive performances - and, when required, more tender performances..."
