EDITORS’ NOTES

Prolific producer and Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach is one of those artists whose music always manages to sound fresh yet comfortingly familiar. His second solo album sounds like a lost gem from the ‘70s, mixing California folk-pop (“Waiting on a Song”), soul lite (“Malibu Man,” “King of a One Horse Town”), and a touch of psychedelia (“Cherrybomb”) for a breezy, kaleidoscopic listen that’s perfect for summer.

Great

Per usual, the negative reviews here are from types who are uninformed of the concept behind this album. If you want Black Keys songs, type The Black Keys into iTunes search.

Good to have more music by Dan!

Even if the black keys aren't making music it's good to hear Dan is still making stuff.

Post Cloud Nine George Harrison/Juice Newton Vibe

I was immediately drawn to the song 'Shine on Me' and also heard some George Harrison similarities. It almost sounds like a Traveling Wilbury's tune meshed with 'Got My Mind Set on You,' meshed with 'Any Road,' meshed with Juice Newton's hit 'Queen of Hearts.' It feels like a Jeff Lynnesque production ala 'You Got It' by Roy Orbison. At this point the song is a little cookie cutter, but still an enjoyable listen.
