The Black Keys – Turn Blue [Album Review]

This is The Black Keys’ eighth studio album and their third with producer Danger Mouse. With their last album, El Camino being a heavy rock based record, they wanted to put something out that would be different from what they’d been doing all along. Up until now, The Black Keys were mostly known as a blues based rock n roll band. But seeing as they’re musicians and creative people, they didn’t want to be pigeonholed as just a guitar band. So they set out to do something different and ended up releasing Turn Blue.

Highlights:
Weight of Love
It’s Up to You Now
Waiting on Words
Gotta Get Away

Label: Nonesuch Records
Produced By: Danger Mouse, The Black Keys
Final Score: 7/10

Your description says 9/10, so I kept thinking this was the most criticized 9 in history. I’m at 8/10. Switch tr 2 & 5 and it flows better imo. I would also replace DM’s cheesy sounds with vintage keyboards or cut altogether. Title track has a digital ‘fart’ sound throughout for no reason. Track 1 sounds a lot like Pink Floyd especially at 3 min mark. Not as bad as Submarine/Mary Jane’s though.

This is the most constructed crictisum this album has ever gotten, normaily everyone who reviews it just says it completly sucks because it dosen’t sound like the Black Keys old stuff, and really nit-pick the whole album because of that

The Albee Tapes says:

thumbs uuped

7/10 sounds good, a good album but just the beginning of their new sound (they seem to like moving on) and now they just have to refine it (and learn not to overproduce)
