Brothers (Deluxe Version) - The Black Keys

The Black Keys is an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). The group began as an independent act founded after the duo dropped out of college, and they eventually emerged among a second wave of popular garage rock revival artists from the 2000s. Currently, The Black Keys have released seven albums- The Big Come Up, Theakfreakness, Rubber Factory, Magic Potion, Attack & Release, Brothers, and El Camino.

(My Opinion)

I don’t care if you’re a hardcore hip hop/whatever you are into lover. The Black Keys is a band for everyone. With beats that just make you want to dance and act like a bad ass how can you not enjoy their music?

I can truly say that there is nothing that I dislike about this album.

Every song starts off with an awesome instrumental intro followed by the band’s easy-going tunes and vocals. Speaking of vocals,  Dan Auerbach’s singing is very smooth and welcoming by not only low and deep notes but also singing very high notes.His voice sounds like a lullaby that draws you in on a cold night. I really like that all of the songs tell an actual story about past romances and futures one, like, Too Afraid To Love You and Next Girl,  family, for example, Unknown Brother and life, Sinister Kid and These Days. These songs, like every other song on this album has catchy, memorable lyrics that even if you’ve heard them once, you would know which song from which. Even though all the songs on brothers has the same song structure, the different instruments used like the harmonica, tambourine, and big drums help to distinguish each song.

I recommend this album to everyone. it appeals to everyone, especially to rock, pop, indie, and blues fans. Even if you don’t enjoy this kind of music, I strongly recommend that you give it a try. From the album, Brothers, my favourite songs are- Tighten Up, Sinister Kid, She’s Long Gone, and Howlin’ For You.
