Customer Reviews

El Camino

Having never heard a song by The Black Keys, I hd seen El Camino was number 2 on itunes and thought to myself, why not give it a listen.
And I'm glad I did because it's pretty darn funky and rocking. I haven't listened to any of their previous albums though so this is purely on it's own merits.

Song by song....

Lonely Boy: A fast paced blues/rocker with a dash of electronics sprinkled throughout. 9.1/10

Dead And Gone: A mixture of blues/rock with alternative/ectronic. Very interesting sound and fitting vocals. 9.2/10

Gold On The Ceiling: And back to a mostly bluesy/rock sound with a few electronic effects. Pretty funky as well. 9.5/10

Little Black Submarines: I've seen a few people compare this to Stairway To Heaven By Led Zepplin. The only similarity between the two is that they both start out slow and end up rocking (song structure). The voice, instrumentals and overall end product sounds completely different. That being said definitely my favourite at the moment. 9.7/10

Money Maker: Another example of how good they sound when they play straight out rock/blues. 9/10

Run Right Back: A sure highlight along with Little Black Submarines. Very bluesy and funky with a side of alternative. 9.6/10

Sister: Love this one too now I listen to it. The most alternative sounding on the album. Very smooth. 9.6/10

Hell Of A Season: When I heard the introduction I thought for a second I was listening to Lonely Boy again. It's pretty similar if not a little slower. A little more alternative and just as catchy. 9.2/10

Stop Stop: Bluesy sounding again with a twist of alternative. It's not the best on the album but it's not the worst either. 9.1/10

Nova Baby: Okay their are four highlights on the album and this is the last one. I love the mixture of blues and alternative and in this song they mix them the most effectively. Tied with Little Black Submarines for my favourite. 9.7/10

Mind Eraser: Back to a slightly more rock/blues based sound. You can still hear the alternative element their however. It's a pretty epic conclusion. 9.3/10

As you can see I love the album. Some people are saying it's too commerical compared to previous work. And whilst the hooks and instrumentals are incredibly catchy at times, I can't see how this sounds like basically anything commerical (In the top 40 or even 100). It may be to a more commerical appeal, but it doesn't make it any less worthy. If more people like what they hear it simply means they are being more widely recognised for the same level of music. Good music doesn't go unnoticed for long.....


The album of the year has arrived!


Great album, production is similar to brothers but the style is quite different. This is straight up blues/garage rock that hits you like a punch to the throat! It's raw, energetic and some of the keys' fastest songs. Not a bad song on the album. Shame that so many people are buying new nickelback...


Formed: 2001 in Akron, OH

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

It's too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities — their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they're guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos — but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaced in the Stripes. But that's not to say that the Black Keys are blues traditionalists: even on their 2002 debut, The Big Come Up, they covered the Beatles' psychedelic...
