4.0 out of 5 stars Big bluesy beats and slick soulful vocals
The Black Keys are back with Brothers, a lushly produced album that hits you with a head-on assault of big bottom, soul searing blues rock. We are definitely surfing a wave of retro goodness on most of the tracks, especially when vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach stays in falsetto for the entire length of Everlasting Light accompanied by background vocalists giving a few...

2.0 out of 5 stars Brothers - the Black Keys
I have really liked the music I have heard on the radio from the black keys, but this album was a disappointment to me. Part of the reason I purchased was based on other reviews, including a favourable comparison to CCR, but I found nothing comparable at all. I think you need to really be a dedicated fan to enjoy an entire album. If anyone wants to purchse a slightly...

The Black Keys are back with Brothers, a lushly produced album that hits you with a head-on assault of big bottom, soul searing blues rock. We are definitely surfing a wave of retro goodness on most of the tracks, especially when vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach stays in falsetto for the entire length of Everlasting Light accompanied by background vocalists giving a few "shoo shoo waahhh's " for full effect. Ten Cent Pistol is swaggering number, a throw-back to mid-seventies CCR that has some organ thrown in to fill out the sound. In fact, there is quite a bit of keyboard on this album compared to Attack and Release, and I find it is used sparingly enough that it doesn't detract from the guitar/drum aesthetic that has come to define The Black Keys. Drummer/producer Patrick Carney lays down, as usual, a heavy dose of big beats, making this a perfect album for window-rolled-down cruising on a summer day. Clocking in at just under an hour, sure they could have stripped away a few tracks to saturate the album into 40 minutes of rock honey, but I like the length. The two minute interlude of Black Mud, an instrumental track, serves as the perfect runway for the foot stomping She's Long Gone. Along with some Gary Glitter channeling on Howlin' For You, these 15 tracks of full-on rock are a highly referential offering from a band that just keeps doing what it does best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Blues Rock, May 19 2010
Ce commentaire est de: Brothers (Audio CD)
This new album from the duo of Dan Auerbach & Patrick Carney will be on heavy rotation in my car for some time. Perhaps a little more produced-sounding than their previous work, this is definitely not a bad thing, as the result is really quite great. The band offers several blues ballads, with some stellar foot-tapping, grooving tunes, all about love & loss, of course. Stand-out tracks include; Everlasting Light, Howlin' For You, She's Long Gone and Tighten Up (produced by Danger Mouse). Good disc to pick up in time for summer!

Brothers by the Black Keys
another excellent album, i'm so glad dan didn't do another solo album. typical black keys sound but more mature with better musicianship. i only discovered them about 3 years ago but they have become one of my favorites. even my 13 year old son likes them. they have a unique form of combining southern rock with pop on this album. the keyboard use is heavier on this album then others. the music is a little retro sounding, i, like the back up singers, they give it more soul. Check them out.

Really enjoyed the music, reminiscent of the sixties but totally a sound of the Black Keys. Really enjoyable music if you enjoy good rock.
