Stylus magazine rated it the fifteenth greatest album of - while Pitchfork Media ranked it ninth on their list of the top 100 albums from 2000-.

The album was dedicated to Loretta Lynn, creating a friendship between Lynn and both Jack White and Meg White. In 2004, Jack White would produce Lynn’s comeback hit album Van Lear Rose.

Redd Kross bassist Steven Mcdonald created an online-only art project, titled Redd Blood Cells, in which he added a bass track to the otherwise bass-less album. The White Stripes arranged with Steven to take the files down after more than 60,000 downloads.
