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. 

The first half is pretty killer. The second half is kinda filler.
It's a neat album concept that will only be remembered by staunch Black Keys fans. Harmless fun that offers some catchy, bluesy hip-hop.
