UncutMay 30, 2017As imaginative as his guitar playing can be, Auerbach's vocals can be limited. ... And yet, Auerbach's obvious affections for these touchstones, and for these performers, more than make up for such shortcomings. [Jul 2017, p.34]

This will definitely appeal to the masses and there is definitely something for everyone in here. I enjoy being taken on a journey with an album but this didn't feel like that.
