El Camino and Brothers are the reason why the Black Keys are so well recognized. Outstanding album.

Breakthrough album for The Black Keys and probably the last truly enjoyable one for me. The songs are good but lack much diversity. This is the same blues-rock sound they've been pushing since their debut, just filtered through a more poppy approach that sees them trade cohesive songwriting for possible hits.

The album that signalled their commercial breakthrough and, fortunately, one that's also really good. In my opinion, their best along with Rubber Factory.
