Of all of the two-piece rock bands (Dresden Dolls, The White Stripes, The Kills, John & Jehn) available in the market making a royal racket, The Black Keys are by far the least affected by the last three decades of popular music, and evolution. Even more so than Jack & Meg. Which makes you check the album credits twice and then are seeking a second opinion–produced by celebrated uber-producer, superstar DJ and one half of Gnarls Barkley, the ubiquitous and truly fairly modern Danger Mouse?! No, your eyes do not deceive you, but thankfully neither do your ears. He may have brought a discipline and expensive sheen to Attack & Release, the riffing is buffed up real good, but this is essentially the same band that continues to live less of a life and more a Jimi Hendrix Experience. If there’s a change it’s that for the first time their foot is teased off the accelerator, with “Lies”, “Keep in mind that When (Side A)” and “Oceans & Streams” loosening their shoulders and playing a more chilled brand of dusty sunset southern blues, adding in keys and new layers of texture (is that truly a flute on “Same Old Thing”?!). There’s still a number of chance, on the massive Zeppelin-esque “Ordinary Times” and “Keep in mind that When (Side B)” as an example, to leave a boot mark though. More release than attack this time around, but the key still fits. –James Berry
