El Camino and Brothers both have really good songs on them, but I feel like they have yet to put out their best album. Great straightforward rock out of the midwest USA.

Great band, can be repetitive, but with this style it doesn't bother me, you can usually expect at least a few great songs on their albums.

Brothers got me hooked and interested in their previous albums. Rubber Factory in particular was a great find. Since then, they have continued to put out great music. Nothing matches Brothers & Rubber Factory but nothing embarrassing either.

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)
