I think its foolish for writers to compare them to the Stripes, but I guess it's unavoidable. The Black Keys stick to the blues and don't stray very far. Even their cover of No Fun by the Stooges is bluesy. Anyway, I predict big things for them this year.
Gaz, where do you live? I'm from Akron, so we've got to be almost neighbors.

The Peter Relic review was quite deserving for the Keys, but it was Relic's final line that caused me to respond: "In a world gone White Stripes crazy, save room in your heart and CD wallet for the Black Keys." It seems as though Relic fails to realize the irony within his own statement. For some reason he sounds as if he cannot understand the reason the world has gone White Stripes crazy, alternately he thinks the Keys released a supurb album. The reason we love the Stripes matches our captivation of the sound generated from The Black Keys. The flatted thirds and sevenths that Auerbach masters in every track is reminencent of any classic blues album, and most recently surfacing in the stripped-down sound of The White Stripes. I beg Relic not to search for differences in music with a bountiful supply of similarities to celebrate. This is an exciting time to be a fan of music,...

Fairly impressive for a band that will have its one year aniversary this month.

Well if rolling stone gives it four stars, it must be great! Hold on while I carve the band's name into my fucking leg!
Well Rolling Stone magazine likes them...gave 'em a four star review. Not bad for an indie band that no one had heard of four months ago. They'll be in Detroit next Saturday, Jan 11th. At the Lager I think
These guys better be outstanding when I see them. They're headling a show with the Soledad Brothers here in Atlanta in February. If not, I'm going to urinate in my pabst can and throw it at the fuckers.
I have been inactive with regard to shows as of late, so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt... However, every band that generates a buzz on this board is usually pretty disappointing ultimately.
