Hey, the Black Keys are charting this week. Way to go, American record-buying public.
The songs are wonderfully melodic, freewheeling, joyous, and I humbly appreciate that, especially in a younger band that has every excuse to be dour and derivative like their electro-clash peers.
The production is a little off-putting--very trebly and tinny, and the drums sound toyish. But if you can overlook that, and the singer's unpolished vocals, you will be rewarded with a pretty swell album.
