Product Description

Product Description

The Black Keys’ new album, Turn Blue, will be released on Nonesuch Records. Produced by Danger Mouse, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, Turn Blue features 11 new tracks including the first single, ‘Fever’.

Turn Blue was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood during the summer of 2013 with additional recording done at the Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI and Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville in early 2014.

Carney comments, “We are always trying to push ourselves when we make a record – not repeat our previous work but not abandon it either. On this record, we let the songs breathe and explored moods, textures and sounds. We’re excited for the world to hear Turn Blue.”

This is the eighth full-length album from the duo and follows 2011’s critically and commercially acclaimed El Camino, which is now certified RIAA Platinum. Internationally, El Camino is Gold in Belgium, Spain, Italy and Holland; Platinum in Ireland, France and the U.K.; and double Platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The record also resulted in three awards at the 55th annual Grammy Awards – Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Album. The band now has a total of six Grammy Awards including three in 2010 for their breakout, RIAA Platinum album, Brothers.

I enjoyed this album. There are some great songs on it, Weight of Love, 10 Lovers, Fever... But it's not amazing. They've carried on from El Camino, continuing with the more upbeat, bigger, poppier sound. I'm not a huge fan of the mixing, I have to say. I think it's been over done, and they've lost the natural tones of some of instruments - it all sounds a bit processed. I think Fever would be a good example of this. But it's not the same for all of the songs. One thing that I like is the 'noodly guitar riffs' that have been dismissed as being a bad thing. I think they're pretty good and work well - I am a guitarist though...

Overall, there are some really cool moments in this album, but there are also some that aren't so great. Not the best album they've done, but it's not too bad. Brothers was a great album, but they've come along way and changed a lot since then. I sort of wish that they would return to that sort of sound...

It's a departure to El Camino which is one of my favourite albums, Turn Blue is different but it works. It experiments much more than el Camino and it succeeds. While the album doesn't have as many classics as previous albums, turn blue is the black keys experimenting and innovating with new styles of music which is pulled off brilliantly.

The vinyl version comes complete with a free poster (which I was told also comes with the CD version)and a CD version of the album and if that isn't enough amazon have auto ripped Turn Blue which let me listen to the album before delivery on my iPod.

There are plenty of very knowledgeable music critics who have commented that with their latest album, Turn Blue, The Black Keys have somewhat lost their way; that they have left their gritty blues-rock roots and turned (or evolved) towards a more manufactured sound. This album has been described as ‘grand psychedelia’ and having an ‘epic, languorous style’ and comparisons have been made with Pink Floyd and The Eagles. I think such comments and comparisons are valid. I agree with those who say the album is patchy; that some of the songs are just too over produced and unremarkable to warrant unqualified support. But where this album is good, it is very good indeed. ‘In Time’ and ‘Fever’ are examples but the standout song is the opener ‘Weight of Love’. In my experience, rarely does a song literally stop me in my tracks when I first hear it but this did for me. The opening haunting solo is just captivating.

Even more remarkable is the supporting cinematic video which stars supermodel Lara Stone as the leader of a cult of beautiful women who hang out on a remote beach and in grassy scrubland, live in what appears to be an abandoned house (a lighthouse?) and partake in synchronized group exercises and worship. The video is deliberately ambiguous in what it portrays and I have read many different interpretations. What is not in doubt, and this is very unusual in my view, is that the video actually enhances the song. It is beautifully shot: I love the blue azure skies, the golden brown sunset and the dreamy sequences as the girls look after each other. It transported me away from drudge of modern life of work-eat-sleep for seven minutes at least.

I have been a keen fan of The Black Keys for several years and have seen them rise and rise and I would desperately like to give this album five stars but, as noted above, the album is patchy so with much regret I award it four stars.

Not sure who this band is, but it's not the Black Keys that were such a refreshing blast when they started out. Some may view it as a progression, but this change of direction and style does nothing for me. I had to grit my teeth and listen to every track in the hope that the band that made Thickfreakness and the Big Come Up were still in there somewhere...but they weren't. A couple of tracks are OK but could have been recorded by any competent amalgam of session musicians. I see no reason to play it again.

I have been a Black Keys fan for a long time and I thoroughly enjoy how their sound and style has developed. This album has more prominent keyboards and they underpin the riffs beautifully. Drumming is even more powerful than before -, maybe because it's very well recorded: big soundstage, lots of depth The first track reminds me in several parts of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon - how weird is that?

Can't wait for the next step in the Black Keys musical journey

I got into The Black Keys off the back of Attack and Release which I thought was a fantastic album and one I regularly listen to ( and I have over 800 to listen to)
I brought El Camino and was very disappointed with a bog standard rock album that had nothing that stood out from any other wannabe garage rock bands output
I am very please to say that they are back to what I liked about them a bit blues and slightly different and a bit edgy
Another great album

Excellent new release from the black keys. Have all their stuff and the music is definitely moved on with a lot of different sounding tracks. Love the boys and their music. A must see live. Highlights on this are definitely the longest track recorded to date - weight of love, turn blue, bullet in the brain and the good old rock n roll track gotta get away. Fever is another brilliant tune which ticks all the right boxes. Long live Dan and Patrick!
