Artist: The Black Keys

Album: Brothers

Label: Nonesuch

Release Date: 5/18/2010

Damn, The Black Keys, at this point I don’t think I need to define what they do… But anyways, its blues and they do it well. Brothers builds from the bands previous works, solo projects included. But as it was with past black keys albums, the more it plays the more it embodies its own progressive shape, which is why The Black Keys don’t have to change a thing. It’s a band that understands and manipulates the origins of rock & roll, creates an album that expands with every listen, to the point while listening you’ll find yourself saying, “oh wait that’s amazing”; they don’t have to change anything.
