Black Keys: Thickfreakness 12" (pic disc)

Fat Possum Records


In the vein of their 2002 debut, The Big Come Up, the Black Keys sophomore album leavens their garage blues with enough innovation to keep things interesting, taking full advantage of Dan Auerbach’s full-throated growl and Patrick Carney's bigger than life drum work. Particularly appealing are "Hard Row," which lurks somewhere between Cream and punk rock, the strong stomp of "Everywhere I Go" and the irresistible guitar riff that graces "If You See Me."
