In their third album, The Black keys didn't seem to care about changes, all we ser here is more of the same and It isn't even better than their other two. "The Lenghts" is the single track here that is above average.

Why does this album have such a low rating? Probably the best Black Keys album and one of the best of the blues rock/garage rock revival of the 2000's.

Underrated garage rock album. In fact, it actually sounds like it was recorded in a garage.

The best of the Black Keys' lo-fi albums. Raw and fun. And a great soundtrack to...well you get the idea.

Sounds of two sweaty dudes hamming it in a garage somewhere.

I think this is the best Black Keys album to date. Great guitar. My 5 favorite songs are: 10 A.M. Automatic, All Hands Against His Own, The Desperate Man, Girl Is On Mind, and Aeroplane Blues.

On par with Thickfreakness, not sure which one I like better. It might be a toss up. Modern blues-rock at its best.

If you want great songwriting and soulful guitar, this is the best the Key put out so far
