5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album You've Never Heard, 17 Dec 2011
This review is from: Chulahoma (Audio CD)
As The Black Keys forge ahead with El Camino, their awesome new modern rock album, Chulahoma remains the unsung pinnacle of their old blues rock style, and still my favourite by a long shot. I hope that some of the fans who've picked up on The Black Keys in recent years will be able to appreciate it. If you liked 'Everywhere I Go' (Thickfreakness), well, it's like that, only better.

This is an album of gorgeous, brilliantly balanced blues rock, reinterpreting Junior Kimbrough's music with real class. The Black Keys smooth out the sometimes frenetic rock solo style of Thickfreakness or Rubber Factory into a finely tuned and polished blues sound, combining their own grit with Junior's driving rhythm. While Dan's guitar hits the nail on the head, Pat's drumming is intricate and so good that you can listen to the whole album without hearing anything else. Sometimes more like rock, sometimes more like blues, in a nutshell, this is the best of what The Black Keys duo have to offer in one highly concentrated package.
