Bought it solely on the strength of "I'll be your man" used as the theme for the TV show, "Hung". Absolutely what I was expecting and hoping - tons of early rythm n' blues - dirty-sounding, rock n roll. Love it. Will be looking for more of their earlier stuff, based on reviews of their later stuff.
Great album-for those of you that fell in love with TBK and have been disappointed with them since their direction change after Brothers and some what with El Camino, this is more of what you first loved.
Heavier with more of that 70's rock sound. Have it on vinyl and CD. Vinyl sounds even better with this album. This review is for the limited to G vinyl version released in March I recently got into spinning vinyl at home. I enjoy it very much. This album has been played in full twice now and it sounds great. It is my first G record and it really does sound better than the other records I own, though I can't really comment on the difference between G and for this same record.
The record I got seemed to be very good in quality. I noticed no popping or crackle throughout the entire album. On the music itself: If you have never heard of The Black Keys this is a good start, and or any other album by them. Its rock, its jazz its soul its everything all balled up into one. The way Dan plays the guitar reminds me so much of so many people, not the least of which is Jimmy Page. Its not studio sounding at all. Its just good music.
Guitarist and vocalist Dan Auerbach makes the most out of this limited approach. Even though he is a young man, his vocals evoke that of a gristled, whiskey-soaked, road veteran. His guitar playing is sparse and economical yet entirely creative and emotional.
He utilizes these gutteral riffs juggling between over distorted, awashed in reverb, heavy on effects and clean to get the most out of this minimalist melodic attack.
Despite the sonic manipulations, the guitar always sounds aggressive and raw. Percusionist Patrick Carney also has his work cut out for him because he is not only the backbone, but he has to get a lot more out of his playing then just simple rhythm An inevitable comparison to similar sounding band and drummer Meg White of the "White Stripes" stops right there All the songs are fantastic and the cd plays great all the way through. There's two nice covers. The Beatle's "She said, She said" is done perfectly with a balance between preserving the melody and feel of the original yet taking it in a beautifully primal direction.
Raw bluesman Junior Kimbrough's "Do the Rump" is less imaginative but a showcase for how far this duet can take their minimalist approach and explore different textures with their respective intruments.
