To put it simply, this is a cracker. After getting into the Keys with the excellent Rubber Factory, being immediately compelled to go and grab their first two albums and also after being blown away by their take on some of Junior Kimbrough's songs on Chulahoma, I didn't think things could get much better. But with this Dan and Patrick have raised the bar once again. It is more of the same raw bluesy rock but yet somehow delivered with even more passion and confidence.
As ever Dan's guitar playing and singing is top notch and Patrick's drumming is the perfect foil. There are raw and heavy, short and sweet numbers like 'Your Touch', and there are also mellow moments of gorgeousness like 'You're The One'.
I really cannot recommend this album, or anything the Black Keys have ever done, enough. They also happen to be the finest live band around at the moment.
