Sep 3, 2015Frontman Dan Auerbach’s new project lands right in the meaty part of the psychedelic curve with jolts of lush hypno-soul and tough garage-edelia.
Sep 4, 2015Yours, Dreamily, takes what Auerbach does at his best, in and out of the Keys--confessional, texturally enriched blues propelled with garage-rock force--and adds a riveting jump in eccentricity.
Sep 4, 2015Coproduced and primarily co-written by Auerbach and Michels, Yours, Dreamily satisfyingly careers from gauzy, reverb-soaked late-night soundscapes to raucous, fuzzy freak-outs.
Sep 8, 2015Needless to say, Yours, Dreamily can occasionally represent a more challenging listen than other Auerbach-contributed music. Occasionally though, these guys soar.
Sep 21, 2015Yours, Dreamily draws spirited performances from its players, but works best as a one-off event.
Sep 14, 2015The album’s frequent sampled and pasted interludes, its wiggy organ and woozy country-soul atmosphere all build up a sense of sepia-tinted playfulness that sidesteps the Black Keys’ usual growl and punch.
Sep 11, 2015Yours, Dreamily is tight without purpose, bordered where it should be wild, and only occasionally feels alive at all.

Sep 4, 2015It's a solid, adventurous, and sometimes bizarre record that is the best Auerbach-featured LP since The Black Keys' Brothers album in 2010. ItIt's a solid, adventurous, and sometimes bizarre record that is the best Auerbach-featured LP since The Black Keys' Brothers album in 2010. It has pieces of the Dap-Kings, Dr. John's Locked Down, Black Keys' fuzzy garage rock, and a variety of other genre influences that mostly all hit. It flags for a few tracks towards the end, but the closer "Searching the Blue" is gorgeous. This is the record that Turn Blue should have been - raw, natural, and earnest.… Expand
Jun 21, 2020It's fantastic! It's not just a copy and paste of The Black Keys, and it also isn't too similar to Dan's solo work. The mixing is fantastic |It's fantastic! It's not just a copy and paste of The Black Keys, and it also isn't too similar to Dan's solo work. The mixing is fantastic | the guitar solos are spaced out but incredibly atmospheric | the song writing is top-tier | the inclusion of the mariachi girls adds a incredible dynamic to a very stable foundation | the art work is absolutely glorious.
This is a two-thumbs up. Easy recommendation to any fans of alternative rock, the Black Keys , or someone who wants to hear what else Dan has to create.… Expand
