El Camino can just go away. Brothers is their master work. I saw these guys in concert back in 2003-ish, their ThickFreakness/Rubber Factory days. 10 people watched these guys perform in a dingy theater in Lawrence, Kansas and 7 of them were my friends. They rocked then with no one knowing who they were and they rock now with full stadiums.
With that said, Thickfreakness and Rubber Factory are much better than El Camino, barf.

In my opinion they are not as outstanding as white stripes, franz ferdinand or the hives, but they can write some catchy song to every albums that sounds good and also they have a good music style, you can recognise them, but they can be boring after 5-6 songs.

Great band that somehow managed to work up the the distasteful mainstream. Contrary to what their history would suggest, their earlier albums are not less accessible, they may have less hits however. I recommend starting with Rubber Factory from their earlier albums, then Big Come Up which easily fiercer than El Camino (which I love)

I agree with Cornbeef17. One of the few good musicians in today's age.

A throwback to earlier times... The Black Keys have restored funky grinding rock and roll to the forefront. Their collaboration with Deadmaus could have been a flop, but they nailed it. Can't wait for their next release.

I only discovered The Black Keys in 2010, but I'm now working my way backwards through their back catalogue.
Fantastic. Five Stars!
