I absolutely love this album, it's so organic, it's so cool, raw guitars, clicks and all, just bang on the money blues by two young guys who have created a new following of fans to this style of music. put this in your car stereo during a hot summers day, very loud instead of any electronic dance music (which I beleive is for clubs or headphone listening) wind your windows down and cruise through the town slowly, this music is so cool you won't need your aircon and you will see passers by ears prick up and they start to groove. It's old style music with a new feel and is brilliant. Can't fault any song on this or any of the other Black Keys albums. I managed to see them live last year and they were awesome, sounded just like their albums, live and raw and cool as!

My days, what an album. Comparisons with the white stripes are somewhat unfair. This band is exceptional. Blues Rock with obvious Hendrix influences, it is great to hear a band come up with quality rock blues in this day and age. The fact they are a two piece band makes them all the more exciting. I bought the album on the back of hearing one song and discovered all 14 are brilliant. The guitaring speaks for itself, quality riffs and rip roaring solos.
It would be wrong to pick out any sungle tunes. The album certainly doesn't have any dissapointments. It starts strong and continues, never dipping
At worst a great introduction to rock blues, at best a testament to wonderful music. The best new album i have bought since Californication (That is no reflection on the style of music tho) Keep it coming boys.

Not only have The White Stripes put out a succession of brilliant and inventive albums, but they have also inadvertently helped along the way a number of likeminded garage bands to stumble out of their basements, clutching a rickety old guitar in hand and onto the front pages of music magazines. The Soledad Brothers, The Von Bondies, The Datsuns, The Beatings, The Kills (and so on...) are now gaining both exposure and sales at a time when rock music seemed to be getting increasingly more uninspiring. This whole "movement" (and I use that word loosely) couldn't have happened soon enough.
The Black Keys have so far not been included in any "ones to watch" polls for 2003, but this is probably down to a distribution issue with their label than to their talent - because rest assured, this is an awesome little record and anyone enjoying The White Stripes, or the regular offerings from the Fat Possum record label, should definitely make an effort to order this album or hunt it down.
The premise is simple: a basic guitar and drums duo (hmmm, sound familiar?) who shun glossy production values for the kind of earthy, primal noise that makes the whole album sound like it was recorded in a wooden shed. On a four track…probably in the rain! Yes, primitive it may be, but as The Stripes have proved, it can also be extremely thrilling. Adopting this stripped down approach (ie, dropping the bass guitar) can often prove to be a problem, because the “bottom end” is abscent, but Dan and Patrick are both very impressive musicians and as “Busted” launches out of the speakers in all it’s RL-Burnside-lick-nicking glory you don’t even notice.

Format: Audio CD
Solid, rocking blues. Outstanding. One of the most honest, genuine and heart-felt musical genres gets a kick up the behind by these two guys. They're kinda like the white stripes but their songs seem to be more underground (probably due to the amount that they stick to tradition). They never intended to make it big really, just to play a few gigs during the winter season, then work on a farm together during the hotter months - due to the outstanding talent and taste on display, however, fate gave them a hand.
I absolutely cannot wait to see this band at Shepherds Bush Empire in a few weeks... Gonna be one of the best gigs I've been to I'm sure.
By the way, check out the other two albums "Thickfreakness" (The title track of which is outstanding) & "Rubber Factory" - All three albums are outstanding and deserve to be bought by yourself!!

The Big Come Up and Thickfreakness (Black Keys debut and second albums) are two classics of the genre. In my opinion they are far better than the later albums produced by DangerMouse (although I still like Brothers and El Camino, but in a different way)I have just bought Rubber Factory and hoping that that is as good as the Big Come Up.

You won't be disappointed with this CD. It's no gamble to buy it if you haven't heard The Black Keys play - as long as you like rock, or blues, you will love this album. They seem to be on a marathon US tour at the moment but could be in the UK September 2006, so you've got time to get this and realise what you've been missing from your life before you see them live!! You won't regret it, honest.
