i love the black keys.they have such a unique sound. these guys live a couple streets away from me and they made their albums either in their basement or in this cool old rubber factory.

dude, it seems like everyone practically knows these guys personally. "oh yeah i know them. i tried to convince them to let me play bass for them" was the last guys response. lol. they must get around.

Saw them live and it was awsome BUT..rubber factory was not impressive in my tastes. The first two albums wer amazing. Have both in vinyl, yes VINYL!! Anyone have the newest album out yesterday??? Is it any good??

The newest album is amazing. The vocals are a lot more clear this time around, which may or may not float your boat ( I like them either way) - and they sound a lot like the early era Free on this album because of this which again may or may not float your boat, but it certainly floats mine. They show picture of their "studio" in the sleevenotes and it looks like someones utility shed or workshop with sinks splattered with old paint etc. Very raw looking which must be an influence on the sound.

I think Auerbach is a great guitarist too. I don't know how technically gifted he is (as I'm not a theorist) but his riffs are to die for and he has AMAZING tone. The picture sleeves show him playing what looks like a Riviera with mini humbuckers. I'm also a fan of the drummer, Patrick Carney who is also very unique.

They are an excellent band. The more I hear from them, the more I like them. I'll be picking up the new album in a couple of weeks or so.

I love these guys. They make awsome bluesy simple music and they represent Northeast Ohio.

Yea. It's kind of like how waay back in the day everyone told me "Nirvana is the best band ever!" Then I would reply "You really should listen to the band Failure. Best thing out of Seattle. (at the time)" Or when I hear about kickass indie acts I mentioned Minus the Bear and am given looks of "who?"

Same thing happens now when people talk about the White Stripes being awesome for a 2-person act. The Black Keys are immediately the first that come to mind; I've managed 5 converts so far.

Btw, the above wasn't a jab at WS or Nirvana. It's just, IMO, I've heard better duos and alternative grunge act, so it suprises me when they get marketed.

The grooviest band since the rolling stones. I could get lost in their grooves for hours. The way the guitar and drums weave and work together is unreal.

Thats the word I use to describe them to anyone, groovy

Patrick Carney is one of my favorite drummers.

^ I use yummy. I'm pretty mad at myself for not seeing them play in San Fransisco, I didn't want to spend money on the ticket and gas money/BART but I definitely regret staying home now.
