The Black Keys

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 surfaces 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 classic “She Said She Said,” indicating a fascination with sound and texture that would later take hold on such latter-day albums as 2008's Attack & Release, where guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney teamed up with sonic architect Danger Mouse. In between those two records, the duo established the Black Keys as a rock & roll band with a brutal, primal force, and songwriters of considerable depth, as evidenced on such fine albums as 2003's Thickfreakness and 2004's Rubber Factory.

Natives of Akron, Ohio, the Black Keys released their debut, The Big Come Up, in 2002, receiving strong reviews and sales, and leading to a contract with Fat Possum by the end of the year. That label released Thickfreakness, recorded in a 14-hour session, in the spring of 2003, and the Keys supported the album with an opening tour for Sleater-Kinney. The Black Keys' momentum escalated considerably with their 2004 album Rubber Factory, which not only received strong reviews but some high-profile play, including a video for "10 A.M. Automatic" featuring comedian David Cross. The band's highly touted live act was documented on a 2005 DVD, released the same year as Chulahoma -- an EP of blues covers -- appeared.

The Black Keys made the leap to the major labels with 2006's Magic Potion, a moodier record that continued to build their fan base. The band capitalized on that moodiness with 2008's Attack & Release, whose production by Danger Mouse signaled that the Black Keys were hardly just blues-rock purists. Salvaged from sessions intended as a duet album with Ike Turner, who died before the record could be finished, the album was the Black Keys' biggest to date, debuting in the Billboard Top 15 and earning strong reviews. Following their second live DVD, the Black Keys spent 2009 on side projects, with Auerbach releasing his solo album Keep It Hid in the beginning of the year, and Carney forming the band Drummer, in which he played bass. At the end of 2009, Blakroc, a rap-rock collaboration between the band and producer Damon Dash, appeared.

Brothers, released in 2010, became their biggest album yet, generating the hit singles "Tighten Up," "Howlin' for You," and "Next Girl." It also saw the Keys returning to their tough blues roots with a new grandness, earning three Grammy Awards, landing on year-end lists from NPR to Rolling Stone, and going gold. The band offered a more straight-ahead rock & roll sound with 2011's El Camino. On the strength of the hit single "Lonely Boy," El Camino debuted at number two on Billboard's Top 200 and the Black Keys worked the album hard throughout the next year, releasing "Gold on the Ceiling" as the record's second single and touring heavily. In the fall of 2012, the Tour Rehearsal Tapes EP -- a brief collection of live-in-the-studio run-throughs of 2012 material -- was released.

Once again tapping Danger Mouse to produce a follow-up, the band went back into the studio in summer 2013 to record. Standing in contrast to the short, spiky rock & roll of El Camino, Turn Blue had a psychedelic undercurrent that could be heard on its preceding singles "Fever" and "Turn Blue." The album appeared early in May 2014 and promptly debuted at the top of the pop charts. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I see there are others out there who miss the thicker bluesier stripped down Keys like I do? They are great live, but seeing them in a small venue with Dan and Patrick just pounding it out was sensational.

Attack and Release was the last good album, everything before that is good stuff. Since then they've become too poppy.

This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy an paste this on ten comments in ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break the chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.
saw them live this week. amazing. they're just as good live as they are in recordings. i was star-struck.
they make me scream like a little girl whenever I hear them and then I start crying..... ugh pure love

luv them so much.... dey r da best
I love the black keys they're the best Hopefully one day i can see them live..
They're pure talent
I'm sorry but this band sucks out loud! Sloppy playing, crappy guitar tone, belligerent vocals and forgettable tunes. I could go on and on but I have to go take a crap.
Older Black Keys are the best.

Don't read this because it actually works.you will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tommorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this 2 days, now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes . When your done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters . This is so scary it actually works.
Open your left hand, find a sharp kitchen knife, slice the right wrist and leave us the f**k alone. We enjoy our comments about bands we like. :: What a bunch of zombie chicken s**ts w/ giant swiss cheese holes where their souls should be.

They should have just stayed duo style. So much better than the elaborate recordings and show I think.
Danger Mouse has done a spectacular job of homogenizing the Black Keys. They sell more albums now, but their days as blues rock idols are gone. Went to their concert the other day and could only feel massively depressed; they played a bunch of poppy, pseudo-psych e d e l i c stuff and almost nothing from Brothers or earlier. It's a tragedy for guys who can rock so hard to be playing boring stuff like Turn Blue.

Rubberband factory is their best album

I wanna cry I missed here in SD )))):
Saw them in San Diego two nights ago. They were AMAZING. They are even better in person. 11/10 times, I'd rcommend their concert.
Gonnas see them tonight in Phoenix!!! Can' wait, but I hope they play a lot of their old stuff too, it is so good.
I love the black keys
