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.

After having heard the follow-up album Brothers, this seems weak by comparison.… Expand
