That night I couldn't wait to get home and play the CD which I have now played constantly for 2 weeks and it still sounds as fresh as when I first heard it.
The music is raw throughout with Dan's vocals emulating some of the great blues/rock singers of the past 40 years and his guitar playing dispelling the myth that Jimmy Page had came up with all the great guitar riffs. He is ably backed by Patrick Carney whose drumming reminds me of early John Bonham.
I can't recommend this album highly enough, it's a breath of fresh air amongst the usual throwaway Brit/Indie stuff that the record shops are full of.

CD very good, much better than expected when I read the reviews from the days it came out.
I've seen a few media reviews suggesting that the BK are just repeating themselves. We'll I for one could take a few more releases in this style. Recommended.
As ever Dan's guitar playing and singing is top notch and Patrick's drumming is the perfect foil. There are raw and heavy, short and sweet numbers like 'Your Touch', and there are also mellow moments of gorgeousness like 'You're The One'.
I really cannot recommend this album, or anything the Black Keys have ever done, enough. They also happen to be the finest live band around at the moment.
Dan Auerbach, who sounds like a cross between Paul Rodgers and a latterday Howlin' Wolf - yes, he's that good - sings like the devil on these dirty, downhome tracks, with Patrick Carney a stunning, supportive and inventive drummer. Auerbach also plays a very mean guitar. Try track 5: Give Your Heart Away, or track 7: Modern Times, for a hellraising example of what these two can do all on their own.
It was recorded in the basement of Carney's home in Akron, Ohio. All I can say is, more albums ought to be recorded in cellars, lofts, alleyways and kitchens if this kind of grit is the result.
I love the Black Keys, they have enriched my life, and I only wish I'd heard them sooner.
This 2006 effort follows the equally superb, equally essential Rubber Factory. It's full of great things, nutritious in a way so few bands manage to be these days - let alone duos.
The dog's b------s!
the previous efforts this album gives a more rockier and harmonic effort to their playing.
The growl of the hard guitar on "Your Touch" and "Just a little heat" and spine tinging riff on "Black Door" make this the best album yet by the Detroit duo. You can see the producer slightly changing the way the blues duo are becoming more mainstream on this album but its a powerful effort that is still one of my favourite all time albums.

A must have for any Black Keys fan. Blues and drums up front where they belong.Published 15 months ago by Rob Seymour
I love this early stuff by The Black Keys. And this record doesn't disappoint.
I got into the Black Keys after seeing them at Leeds Festival in 2012. Naturally I listened to their newer stuff after and I was hooked. Read morePublished on 8 Jan. 2015 by Andrew Hawkes
