if you want to hear a rock band confront the blues with soul, muscle & respect, then this will be right up your alley.

With their 2-piece, no-bass format, there's no room for clutter or wank & the raunchy fuzz of Dan Auerbach's guitar (& drummer Patrick Carney's production) owes more to the Gories/Blues Explosion/White Stripes school of aural grime than anything else, but look past all that and the Black Keys are a straight-up blues band. the Black Keys's wail is hot, primal & heartfelt & Auerbach's lean but meaty guitar lines & room-filling vocals drag the blues into the 21st century through sheer force of will without sounding like these guys are in any way mocking their influences.
