Our Review

On the surface Magic Potion is an odd name for music made by this earthy Akron duo. But there is magic here. With the flick of an amp switch and a twirl of drum sticks the Black Keys conjure musical splendor from the most unpromising of raw materials. Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney, two unassuming looking young men from Ohio who approach the blues with an intuitive sympathy and a reckless sense of joy, play with an unparalleled instrumental cohesion that moves like the Meters’ syncopated funk and bludgeons with the brute force of the Stooges in their heyday. On Magic Potion the Black Keys hove close to their tried and true strategy of strut and destroy. Though the clipped, New Wave-ish chords of “Strange Desire”, and Auerbach’s addled John Lennon style croon on “You’re The One” find the group inching into new musical territory, the album’s best moments come when the Black Keys forget about songwriting, and mine the hypnotic grooves of numbers like “Just Got To Be” and “Elevator” for all they're worth.

iTunes, ya gots the wrong album art up there…. (5 stars)

…just thought ya might like to know.

oh, and damn fine album.


Carry me Ohio… (5 stars)

If you even wondered what music in Ohio sounds like, it sounds like these guys. Viva la Akron.


This one is excellent. (5 stars)

I wasn't that much into their other albums because all of the songs sounded kinda samey. But this album is excellent, and shows a lot more maturity and diversity in the songs. It also has a much clearer production (though still very heavy) that really makes the songs sound great. Best tracks: "Your Touch", "Modern Times", "Goodbye Babylon", "Black Door".


Biography

Formed: 2001 in Akron, OH
Genre: Alternative
Years Active: '00s, '10s

It’s too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities — their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they’re guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos — but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaces in the Stripes. But that’s not to say that the Black Keys are blues traditionalists: even on their 2002 debut, The Big Come Up, they covered the Beatles’ psychedelic…
