Where's the Blues? Posted by: from: Santa Rosa, Ca on After seeing these guys in concert the day before this album came out, I thought they were still out to blues-rock their way to stardom. If any band could pick up a three stringed broken guitar out of the trash and play awesome blues in front of a crowd of thousands, this was it. After listening to this album, I thought, well, maybe I'll just keep listening to their older stuff. It's a good album, in a poppy kind of way, but it's just not the Black Keys. Danger Mouse has a hip-hop sensibility that shouldn't be downplayed, but as an avid Black Keys fan, the two just didn't mesh well. The second track is the only one where the old school Keys come out, and it's awesome. Overall, I'd stick to their later stuff if you want some good dirty blues rock.

Some great songs, good album Posted by: from: Los Angeles, CA on Not as simplistic as their previous albums and that's a good thing. The fact that they used more instruments and background vocals for this album shows that they were heading in the right direction musically.

Not Worth All the Hype Posted by: from: Dundalk, MD on For years I've heard the same argument: The Black Keys are better than The White Stripes. Having seen the 'Stripes in concert as well as owning all their albums, I'm inclined to argue the above statement is false, but that's just me. Then I listened to "Attack and Release" and found that I was right after all. Before I continue, no, I have not seen the 'Keys play live, and this is the first of their albums I've heard. With that said, this is the perfect album to listen to if you want to immediately lose interest in this band. It sounds muddy and over-produced and doesn't do either of these musicians justice. To be perfectly honest, I think it's an insult. Dan and Patrick are turned way down and all of Danger Mouse's little added bits are pushed to the forefront. This band is a two-piece, and it should sound like a two-piece unless otherwise noted. Aside from the poor production of this album, I found the songwriting to be rather boring and uninspired. These guys have a reputation for putting on one heck of a rock & roll show, but this album barely has any rock & roll songs on it. Instead, we're given a bunch of blues-influenced pop tunes. If you want to listen to a really good 'Keys album, pick up a copy of "Brothers." Avoid this garbage at all costs.

Black Keys Posted by: from: C'ville, VA on I enjoy the raw gritty sound of Dan Auerbach and this cd is no exception to that sound. While probably not the greatest of their albums, it isn't a bad one by any means. CD plays well, easy to get it in and out of the case, can't ask for much more.

These Guys Just Keep 'Em Coming Posted by: from: on The Black Keys write great tunes. This is the kind of music you put on as you kick back with a beer, and tend the BBQ. I like this CD, however their CD Magic Potion is even better, if that's possible.
