The Black Keys
Attack &; Release

I like all of the Black Keys albums up to and including 2010’s “Brothers”. After that, at some point during 2011’s “El Camino” album their sound became less organic, over produced and a bit too style-over-substance for my tastes. “Attack & Release” was “Brothers” more low-key predec...view item »

The Man With The Iron Fists

As one might expect from a film co-written and directed by RZA, The Man With The Iron Fists comes with a pretty mighty soundtrack. RZA produces many of the beats here - the rest are handled by, among others, Isaac Hayes and BADBADNOTGOOD - and the whole thing generally oozes that specia...view item »

The Black Keys
Brothers

“Brothers” was really well marketed and started to get The Black Keys noticed in places that they hadn’t previously been noticed. It was arguably their most accessible album at the time (2010) and has more of a punchy sound than its predecessor, “Attack & Release” “Everlasting Light” is like ...view item »

The Black Keys
Thickfreakness

Back in the early 2000s the Black Keys did a bit of mouthing off in the direction of The White Stripes suggesting that Jack White didn't know what real Blues was and seemed to set a course of showing him exactly how it's done. The early Black Keys music is no better than the White Stripes, I'm a fan of bot...view item »

The Black Keys
The Moan

"The Moan" aside from "Busted" is my favourite of all TBK songs. The main riff sounds like a take off of Howlin' Wolf's "Moanin at Midnight". The middle of the song is Carney at his best and Dan ripping it up with variations of the great blues riff. I also really enjoy the fast paced new version of "Have Love Will Travel". This song was already ...view item »

The Black Keys
The Big Come Up

The Black Keys has risen to be one of the most influential and popular blues-rock band of the last 10 years, blazing out of Akron, Ohio with their own signature stomp on hill country blues, 60's rock and roll, and on later releases, psychedelic rock. One really doesn't get the grasp of how insanely popular they would get on this debut release fo...view item »

The Black Keys
Turn Blue

Used to hate them but hate them less these days. The opposite to the normal trajectory. They seem to be purveying soulful, smoky atmospheric pop rather than balls out blues on this album and its all the sweeter for it. Nice production touches, 'Fever' does what MGMT used to do before they went mental. Clever lads. &n...view item »

The Black Keys & The RZA
The Baddest Man Alive

I just couldn’t imagine such a thing when I read of this collaboration, but here it is and it sorta works. The Black Keys churn the track along with fuzzed out bass and lolloping drums in a catchy piece of low slung blues, sounding not unlike something Jack ...view item »

The Black Keys
Chulahoma

This is an exceptional album and a fantastic tribute to Junior Kimbrough, an obvious influence on The Black Keys' music. Dan and Patrick play these songs with such a great feeling for the blues, and for Junior's style, it is no surprise that his widow wanted to congratulate them on their efforts. There can be no finer endorsement than that! The ...view item »

The Black Keys
Rubber Factory

For me, "Rubber Factory" is the best album by The Black Keys. It has the grooviest, most rocking, catchiest songs and reaches the heights that other albums didn't manage. Also, it's more raw sounding - it was before they started making records that had that more produced glam rock stomp, which I don't particularly care for. "10am Automatic" is t...view item »

The Black Keys
El Camino

If Brothers seemed like an unexpected win for the duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, then the follow up album, El Camino, seems desperate to argue that their time in the spotlight isn't over. Where Brothers was an expansive trip through many of the Black Keys's outer stylistic influences, El Camino is a tightly structured album designed to ...view item »

The Black Keys
Till I Get My Way / Girl Is On My Mind

Next.... randomly. The Black Keys. Imagine a more gruff White Stripes if one of them had a beard. Sounds like it was made in about 1950, grizzly blues and quite good. Its a 7" in colour... and it's called The Moan!...view item »

Just Got To Be/ Black Door

  The Black Keys: "Just Got to Be" (V2) As you may or may not already know are a couple of white boys who to me make the funkiest blues racket this side of that other blues type duo The Black Stripes. Maybe they could both have a name chan...view item »
