This record is Jack and Meg White in the studio working on what will eventually become Icky Thump from The White Stripes. This album is part of their creative process and is a peek behind the curtain into the world of a musical wizard. Most of The Red Demos is instrumental; you can hear that Jack is working through his final ideas for the songs that are going to be on the album.

The songs that are not instrumental are far from finished. The vocal work is less aggressive than what you normally hear on a record from The White Stripes and is more laid back. In fact, some of the lyrics are not complete. The version of Icky Thump that is on this record is particularly interesting because it sounds as if Jack White is making it up as he goes along.
