Not as immediate but pure class.,
This review is from: Magic Potion (Audio CD)
This is more of a slow burner compared to their other albums. Maybe a little slower but after repeated listens it seems to have even more blues, soul and heart. It's also a little more polished than their earlier work. If you have any of the Black Keys work and like it buy all of their albums, because everything is of such an amazing standard. Hope this doesn't sound sexist but it really feels like mans music, telling it how it is for us. It's not whining, or angry but cathartic and life affirming. If you ever get the opportunity to seem them live, do it, because you will be enveloped in an amazing cascade of therapeutic blues rock that you will never forget. You won't believe that just two guys can make that sound. It's the sort of music where you have to have a fair amount of life experience to truly appreciate. But even if you don't, get it, because the music is amazing. Favourites: Just Got To Be, Just a Little Heat, Modern Times, Give Your Heart Away and The Flame.
