Spin (p.73) - "Auerbach and Carney cited the Clash and the Cramps as inspirations, and you can hear their spirit in the speedy blitz of CAMINO's 'Dead and Gone' and 'Money Maker'..."
Spin (p.21) - Ranked #36 in Spin's 'The Top 40 Albums Of 2011' -- "Glam-blooze guitar, poppy melodies, and hockey-rink keyboards fit the Keys like vintage denim."
Entertainment Weekly (p.72) - "[With the] edge-of-sanity epic 'Little Black Submarines,' a crate-digger thriller that starts as a quiet acoustic hymn, then explodes." -- Grade: A-
Paste (magazine) - "[A]nother solid rock `n' roll record that features all the qualities early fans of the band loved from the start...and just enough pop sensibility to reel in those ears who don't typically stray too far from the Top 40."
Paste (magazine) - "[A] collection of pure, unadulterated rock songs....It's one solid track after another..."
Uncut (magazine) (p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The Black Keys punch as hard as ever, but they're just as likely to slink towards the dancefloor now....EL CAMINO feels like the dawn of greatness."
