Like most such things, this four-track CD single is mostly of use to collectors and die-hard fans, as the material is not up to the standard of the Black Keys' albums. The title track is one of their less memorable efforts, clunking along in a scuzzy Howlin' Wolf punk groove that doesn't go much of anywhere. Also on board is an alternate version of a song from their first album, "Heavy Soul," and covers of the Stooges' "No Fun" and Richard Berry's "Have Love Will Travel," though the latter seems based on the Sonics' cover of the tune, not the original. Those two covers are the best half of the single, the band turning "No Fun" in particular into more of a gritty blues groove.
I don't know whats wrong with the description... The title track ROCKS
This 4 track collection of the Black Keys is where you'll find some serious rock, blues, and groove. The Moan, the title track, has a riff that just makes my head explode its so good. I have an easy 200 listens to that track, and I jam to it all the time. The rest of the work on here is straight up, cruise with the windows down rock that is perfect on a sunny day. These are the best 4 greenbacks you'll ears will ever enjoy. Highly recommended.
First things first. This is a great EP. It captures what it is that made The Black Keys great to begin with. That garage rock feel is ever present in songs like "The Moan" and "Heavy Soul".
My one complaint is iTunes labeling of the EP. Why does it say 'Clean?' I didn't here any censorship of explicities or evidence that there were explicities to begin with. iTunes hitting the crack pipe again I guess?
this is serious heavy blues, it will probably appeal to all serious blues fans, too bad they didnt go in this direction with their album
