We’re back for part 3 of our six-part White Stripes odyssey. This time we uncover the album that broke them into the big time: White Blood Cells. And what an album it is — bluesy and hooky and layered with all kinds of fascinating touches. Is it their best album? There’s a worthwhile debate to be had about that. But in the meantime, let us walk you through it track by track.
