"El camino" mi è piaciuto più degli altri dischi dei Black Keys che conosco per una questione di piccoli dettagli, come una vittoria al fotofinish. Qualche canzone un po' più bella della loro media ( "Sister" ad esempio ), l'esuberanza sempre velata di malinconia un po' più marcata; non trovo siano niente di speciale ma almeno apprezzabili, quello si.

El Camino is The Black Keys best album, and its a good one. With lots of really good songs, and few weak ones it about as good an album as you could ask for from The Black Keys. However, I don't think Th Black Keys are a spectacular band, so, while this is likely the best they'll ever achieve, it's not an all time great. A really good album, but nothing more.

While there are some solid songs on here, I feel this was the beginning of their decline, but only so slightly.

El Camino is a great and fun album. It's what you expect to hear from the band after Attack & Release and Brothers, however I don't think that it's as good as those other two mainly because I feel most of the songs here sound the same and the band doesn't expand to new ground, which isn't necessarily a bad thing... but it isn't a great thing either. It left me wanting more. I still dance to Lonely Boy though

Fun to listen to, I guess, but nothing extraordinary. Songs are catchy but very similar one to each other. I got easilly tired of Gold On The Ceiling, and most songs are very similar one to each other. Funny I say this while having Arctic Monkey's AM on my top chart, and these two are almos the same, but I feel like the latter is a bland but perfectioned copy of this album. I would of course save Lonely Boy, and Little Black Submarines.

Good album unbelievable that this is only two guys in their garage. Little Black Submarines really reminds me of Stairway to Heaven. Solid album.
