Hot take:

Because of the musical exploration and maturity of lyrical themes, this is The Black Keys' second best album.

I still don't understand why his album is considered a dissapoinment. I think it's their most interesting album.

From Sandrof1969 02/24/2018 22:10
I Black Keys scrivono bei pezzi di questo rock leggero e danzante, ma grosso modo le loro canzoni ruotano tutte intorno a poche idee: ritmi ballabili e tenuti per tutta la canzone, alternanza regolare di strofe e ritornello, tonalità spesso in minore. Alla fine un po'stancano...

Not bad, sometimes it reminds me of Arctic Monkeys / Alex Turner...

Not bad, but in my view it's their weakest album to date.

I'll be honest... I was expecting more of the same old same old from these guys, and was turned off by this "new" direction. Thought they wanted to get a bigger audience etc., but I listen to this, and I'm more impressed than my first couple listens. No prejudice, and this is actually pretty top notch stuff.

Ironic that while talking their album that sounds most like Pink Floyd, The Black Keys confess that they're not really Pink Floyd fans.

Favorite album by the Black Keys, I prefer this new sound. I liked El Camino a lot, but their garage blues/rock sound was a little repetitive I think

After releasing two albums in two years, I was ready to hear something different from the Black Keys. That fuzzy, garage rock sound had been ably, but thoroughly, explored. While they don't venture so far afield as to sound like some other band, they definitely deliver something new here. It's more soulful and psychedelic than their previous fare, equal parts Muscle Shoals and Pink Floyd.
