The Black Keys:
(Universal) – TNT album review

Going on
the strut
of opener Everlasting Light, you might expect Brothers to unfold as a set
of mainstream pop-rock.
It doesn’t, but this is still The Black Keys’ best album.

The duo haven’t learned how to write songs to go along with their riffs yet, and the lyrics still contain an almost miraculous amount of clichés (after all, this is blues).

But this time, there’s at least a little colour
in their cheeks and the merest hint of a smile on their faces.
