I love the Black Keys, they are one of the few newer bands I know and love well and. if you like good blues rock (not Stevie Ray Vaughn), you will love them too.
People might say they are too derivative, sounding like echoes of Led Zeppelin and Muddy Waters among others. But so what if those people are right? It's great dark and dirty bar, beer drinking, world-weary heart aching, thumping, classic blues rock.
Plus this album features an amazing cover of Captain Beefheart's cover of the Robert Pete Williams's song “Grown So Ugly“.
