Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.68) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "In 'Ten Cent Pistol,' the pair pile on the menace -- a garage quintet's worth of guitars, organ and heavy death march..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.74) - "[T]here's a new kind of shrewdness...real songwriting, and real hooks, beneath all that mondo riffage." -- Grade: B+

Uncut (p.81) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "BROTHERS is really all about The Black Keys' swaggering journey from sub-White Stripes curio to one of the best rock'n'roll bands on the planet."

Uncut (p.35) - Ranked #28 in Uncut's "The 50 Best Albums of 2010" -- "[A] measured soulful evolution of the blues-rock sound that's made the duo so compelling..."

Billboard (p.37) - "[T]he pair's latest album, BROTHERS, lures with its spooky throwback sound, preternatural grooves and dark bluesy jams."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The old stomp is here -- along with a cover of Jerry Butler's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' -- but Alabama has stoked The Black keys' dark side."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.57) - Ranked #5 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2010" -- "Their ability to delve into truly soulful territory was clear..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "New challenges, as well as time apart from their main outfit, have served these guys well....BROTHERS is the loosest they've sounded since 2004's RUBBER FACTORY."

Clash (Magazine) - "Different but not drastic, BROTHERS takes just the right amount of street-spirit fire, and builds towards something tentatively grander."
