The Black Keys Turn Blue
The Black Keys seem to be getting better with every album. Following the highly successful 2011’s “ El Camino ” their eighth album feels loose , sort of irresistible and more improvised, consisting of songs that you can’t help but sing along to . The undeniable upbeat drive of their playing and the bittersweet content of their songs are a combination able to turn heartbreak into a totally new experience and function therapeutically.
Tracks immediately accessible that have become instant favourites on the first listen are the single “ Fever ” which unquestionably pleases their numerous fans , “ Turn Blue ” which is beautifully bluesy and the incredible opening track “ Weight Of Love ” that is truly and genuinely thrilling and features an epic guitar solo.
Dan Auerbach’s guitar playing is nothing short but exceptional and takes center stage, leaving you astounded. It looks like he has found what it takes to make the songs as good as they can possibly be. As for Patrick Carney’s drumming , it is powerful and appealing as always but without overwhelming the songs. As it has well been written , “ Turn Blue ” is a wonderful album that is meant to be heard in its entirety with your full attention. The music just flows from the listener’s ears to the brain and into the heart and often works as a healing force. Surprisingly enough the album seems to have stepped right out of the 70’s and this is something The Black Keys should be proud of.
With “ TURN BLUE ” The Black Keys exhibit even more musical growth and maturity but at the same time they leave room to grow and develop their supreme talents. There is no doubt that they have all the right elements and maintain a high level of quality in their work but what is even more important and admirable is the fact that they prove what they already know in their hearts … “ Taking risks and sticking to what you love often works ” !!!
Discover the irresistibly catchy album with the melancholic title “ Turn Blue ” and let a special band blow you away !!!
