Our Review

The Black Keys’ debut, The Big Come Up, is two tons of pounding electric blues; this follow-up is heavier still. Powered by overdriven amps, reverb, thumping kick drums, and muscular riffs, the Keys offer respect to their blues heroes (particularly R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough) while still sounding like a 21st-century band. Guitarist/singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney strut and stomp through Thickfreakness like they’re exorcising demons. Auerbach, a bona fide blues howler, sounds possessed, moaning unintelligibly as if mere words can’t convey his feelings. Track after track, the intensity of the fuzzy, distorted guitar hooks never lets up, with the savagely pummeled snare and funky hi-hat fills driving home the point. The grimy lo-fi production, brilliantly handled by Carney, matches the band’s primal power and raw delivery. Tempos sometimes waver and an occasional note is missed, yet such immediacy makes the album actually sound better. Thickfreakness is The Black Keys at their filthiest and most furious.

Customer Reviews

One of my favorite albums (5 stars)

This is the second best album of The Black Keys (after Rubber Factory), but nevertheless, this is a stunning album. From rockers such as "Set You Free" to more "epic" "Hold Me In Your Arms" this album is awesome. Every single track is a repeat over and over and you will just smile when you listen to the songs.


so delicious (5 stars)

This album embodies perfectly the Black Keys. Their music is powerful and crunchy ans just overall satisfying to listen too. Though it's called "bare bones" it is far from shallow. The blues influence is clear, and in my opinion, blues and rock and roll were a match made in heaven. "thickfreakness" and "Everywhere I Go" (the Junior Kimbrough cover) are probably two of the best tracks, but the material holds s

Amazing (5 stars)

This band is so awesome. I had never heard of them before, and once I heard them I was hooked. They have a style reminiscent of the classics.


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…
