AllMusic

The tough blues band of the Black Keys earliest records is back, but the group hasn’t forgotten what they’ve learned in their inwardly psychedelic mid-period.

Albums like this help me to appreciate the good southern rock revival, but it also reminds me that there is also not a lot of it out there.

Even if you hate pop breakthroughs, you're unlikely to hate their new direction.
