DonnieApr 3, 2008Best Black Keys album..seems they are refreshed after Magic Portion and having much fun playing these great tunes..a modern classic.
ChristianP.Apr 4, 2008Expanded their sound without taking anything away from the heart of it. Incredible album.
ChrisB.Apr 14, 2008Best one yet! I really like their new sound.

Like Magic Potion, there arent any tracks that grab you immediately but a couple songs are real strong. Highlights are:
"Psychotic Girl" and "Things ain't Like they Used to Be" are solid.… Expand
Jul 14, 2011It's a decent attempt at evolving their sound after they took their gritty blues rock as far as they could in their previous albums, but this just misses as many times as it hits. It features a few great cuts like "I Got Mine," "Oceans and Streams," and "Remember When (Side B)," but the rest too often fail to impress or keep the listeners' attention ("Remember When (Side A)," "Same Old Thing"). After having heard the follow-up album Brothers, this seems weak by comparison.… Expand
