More Good Stuff
on 22 October 2004
I love The Black Keys, Thickfreakness was amazing, however, in all fairness this album is not as good.
Its worthy of buying as certain tracks are fantastic but as a whole it doesn't blow you away.
The band have definitely developed since the last album. In fact, The Lengths is one of the best songs on the album. A really mellow, pedal steel backed tune. On the mellow theme Act Nice and Gentle is also memorable, a cover version, that doesn't sound unlike Mungo Jerry's - In the Summertime, but nevertheless puts a smile on your face.
10 AM Automatic & Til I Get my Way follow Thickfreaknesses blend of catchy blues rock, condensed to a palatable 3mins or so.
If your a fan buy it. If not try Thickfreakness, the first half of that album is Stunning and rest is pretty good too.
