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)

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!
