This review is from: Chulahoma (Audio CD)
I have listened to The Black Keys for years and, although thickfreakness was great, I believe they still havent managed to re-create the magic of The Big Come Up. With Chulahoma all of the intimacy and warmth of that record is restored. Its obvious Dan is a huge Kimbrough fan; the songs are lovingly performed at a leisurely pace that works really well. I liked Magic Potion, but I probably now listen to this Ep more than any of the other albums. That could be worrying since the songs are not theirs, but the execution of them is pure Black Keys. Enough of the Jack and Dan comparisons, they are worlds apart and as good as each other.

I completely agree. The Big Come Up remains one of their strongest. Simple, and not yet as deft as Chulahoma, but plenty of soul. 'Busted' knocks me off my feet whenever I see it live.
