You might think the remarkably similar and undeniably terrible Black Lips/GZA collaborations from earlier this year would have made everyone involved in the BlakRoc project-- Black Keys plus hip-hop artists, to be reductive-- re-think their decision. But by being so blatant about what it did wrong-- combining notoriously sloppy and notoriously methodical artists-- the Lips and GZA may have actually have provided an unintentional boost.

Blakroc is a new collaboration album with the Black Keys and a whole bunch of hip hop artists. Was it as bad as I thought it would be? Almost. The album just came off average to me. Nothing here is offensively bad, but there's really nothing at all to write home about.

Favourite tracks: On The Vista, Dollaz & Sense, Stay Off the Fuckin’ Flowers
