The Black Keys – Attack And Release

March 26, 2008

For their latest album, Attack And Release, Akron based band the Black Keys recruited Danger Mouse for their producer, but longtime fans worried that they’ve abandoned their funk and blues-fueled rock sound need fear not, as their signature sound is fully intact. Danger Mouse, great producer that he is, doesn’t try to reinvent the band, but rather gives their music a fuller, more expansive feel where appropriate. The result is the best sounding Black Keys record yet, and better yet, the impassioned material feels like the work of a freshly invigorated band. It’s all the dirt and the grit and the funkiness you love about the Black Keys, just on a bigger scale.Standout cuts: “Strange Times,” “Psychotic Girl,” “Remember When (Side B)” and “Same Old Thing.”
