Editors’ Notes

Vacillating between strutting, future-disco jams (“Bullet in the Brain”, “Year in Review”) and soulful synth-driven rockers (“10 Lovers”, “Fever”), Turn Blue is unified by singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach’s passionate songwriting, a brooding, ghostly atmosphere and the enduring power—and flexibility—of the blues.

Customer Reviews


The band that was The REAL Black Keys. LAST SEEN: On albums like Magic Potion and Rubber Factory maybe Attack & Release with dangerous blues hooks & gut busting drums like "Just Got to Be"... "Give Your Heart Away"... "I Got Mine" and "When The Lights Go Out." I used to stay up hours into the middle of the night jamming out to those tracks. REWARD: An over fluffed producer that goes by the name of Danger Mouse...can help your garage band reach their "overproduced" potential and get you on MTV! PLEASE CALL IF YOU SEE ANY SIGN OF THE REAL BLACK KEYS. CAN REACH ME AT 555-REAL-KEYS. THANKS!

I Like It

I know it's not the old blues sound of Rubber Factory that us hardcore Black Keys fans had grown to love, but I like this single. It is fairly similar to El Camino and I loved that album.

For all the people who say they have changed, they're just exploring new sounds. Hopefully this album turns out to be amazing!


Getting too far away from their strengths. Missing the grit / blues / soul. Hoping the album is strong. Regardless, still a great band.


Formed: 2001 in Akron, OH

Genre: Alternative

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...
