This is a review of Brothers by The Black Keys in less than 140 words. It’s still great.

Many bands are all about sound, tone, vintage amps, etc. to the point that other aspects of writing, performing and art suffers. The Black Keys are pretty much the contemporary leader of vintage rock and blues, but, as appealing as the the warm and cozy tones and production are, this album is all about great songs. Something the copycat bands struggle to, uh, copy. I had thought they’d never do as well as Attack & Release. I was wrong. What if Hendrix had recorded an album for Motown? Album of the year.

The Black Keys - Brothers

This is a list of the highlights from the album:
Everlasting Light
Tighten Up
The Only One
Never Gonna Give You Up
(I almost wrote: “All of them”)
