1.0 out of 5 stars Not for Black Keys fans, 28 Aug 2008
This review is from: Attack and Release (Audio CD)
The first three Black Keys albums are amongst my favourite ever albums. For the fourth, Dan picked up a plectrum and lost a lot of the depth his playing got from his finger and thumb style. He'd also clearly had singing lessons and his voice had lost its wonderful raw power. The demise is complete with Pat's brutal and instinctive drumming style tamed, and all sorts of awful accompanying instruments which don't add anything. The keyboards on Hendrix tracks complement his playing, on this album it sounds like some big shot producer has added them to tone down the raw natural style of the band... which is what's happened. I think Dan and Pat allowed the glamour and fame (or cash rewards) of Dangermouse cloud their judgement here.
