This review is from: Thickfreakness (Audio CD)
How did only two guys from a small town, who didnt even intend to make it big, make such fantastic music.
The only good rock music nowdays is modern blues/soul/garage stuff.
And this is one of the best examples. The keys are the best band not to come from detroit.
Forget all the hives vines and kings of leon crap, that is so undoubtedly over rated, the keys are one of the best modern rock bands blow away the likes of the lost prophets and him and the rasmus and the likes.
With john auerbachs black sounding voice and ever so slightly hendrix sounding guitar, complimented by patrick carneys sublime druming and production skills. These guys are up there with the stripes and soledads and dirtbombs, helping to make the only true good modern rock.
This album is also one of the best i have heard. The vocals on thickfreakness-the title track and the general rythem and guitar playing through out the album are inspiring. especially set you free, my personal favourite. and even for people who wouldnt useually listen to the more demanding hard core guitar styles, this album is quite easy listening and is great to unwind too.
Brilliant is the only word to describe it.
