Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brothers (MP3 Download)
I bought this album within a couple of weeks of release and still have yet to hear anything better this year.
My first encounter with the band on 'Attack and Release' lead to a love affair with this band that shows no sign of waning.
Essentially what you have here is a lovely combination of rhythm and blues that I don't think we've heard since the hey days of Ray Charles, perhaps. The songs are soulful, brooding, delicate and yet full of oomph that means you're going to take the entire albums journey each time you listen.
It really is spurious to start suggesting culling individual tracks from this record, it's to be taken as a whole, not the sum of its parts, so all you downloaders, don't scrimp, this is a beauty, something to behold and tell your pals about.
As a band The Black Keys just get better and better, this album is an absolute essential purchase for this year so don't hesitate one second longer.
