This Album is Great,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Turn Blue (MP3 Music)
I have no clue what people were wanting, besides maybe another The Big Come Up, or Rubber Factory, Thickfreakness, etc.... If you want to listen to garage rock/blues then get those albums or listen to them again. I have those and love them, and of course is what made me fall in love with the Black Keys. The Beatles first 4-5 years as a commercial band were filled with similar songs, although they were mostly all great albums. Then they started to experiment and became the Beatles that most people still love to this day, although at the time people didn't know what to think of it.
In short, if you love music, this is a great album. If you love the Black Keys, I'd assume you'd love this album but yes it is more experimental and psychedelic sounding. Which I think is great! I for one, while I enjoyed El Camino, considered that to be more of an average album. This album is awesome in my opinion. And "Weight of Love" is moving into my list of favorite Black Keys songs ever. This is the perfect album to put on, start at song 1 and just let the whole thing play.
I went from San Berdoo, to Kalamazoo just to get away from you. Get used to hearing that!
