7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 7th September 2015
“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 a restrained T-Rex-style stomp – a sound that they over-egged on later albums – which features a falsetto vocal from Dan Auerbach. “The Next Girl” is more typical of their previous work with a memorable blues riff and Auerbach’s strained and desperate vocal. “Tighten Up” stands out, it’s catchy with a good riff and Auerbach’s vocal sees him being perkier than on the previous track. “I’m Not the One” & “Never Gonna Give You Up” are reminiscent of the slow, soulful tracks that stood out on “Attack & Release”. “Brothers” has it’s bad points, “Howlin’ For You” for example, but is nevertheless a decent record.
