So, Amazon, how about that two-day shipping?

If you've only heard El Camino on headphones, please find some way to play it on your stereo or in your car. This shit sounds amazing cranked. It's a solid album in any context because the songs are sturdy and fun, I'm on headphones now and am enjoying it like always, but you really pick up on the speed of the record when it's played loud.

This album will be a very significant addition to their live repertoire.

Well, that would explain the "play it loud" sticker on the cellophane wrapping!

So this album will be in my top 3 of the year. It's so much better than I thought it would be after hearing Lonely Boy, which I found to be a little lacking as a single. In the album context, though, it's great. Dead and Gone, Little Black Submarines, Sister, and Stop Stop are the peaks in my opinion.

Maybe I need to listen to to it more, but I found myself wondering what those men have done with The Black Keys. Especially after listening to parts of thickfreakness this morning. I like El Camino very much, but when did they start making pop records?

I've only gone back as far as Rubber Factory, but the only significant difference I can perceive is the production. It's bright and slick, and I suppose that gives the album a strong impression of mainstream accessibility.

I do believe you're taking for granted how much this rocks though.

I really liked Brothers. It was my top album of 2010. After about a dozen listens, I think I like this one more. However, I must say I don't think there's a single song as good as Too Afraid To Love You on this album. That's easily my favorite Black Keys song.

That's most of it.

I heard the single on the radio. It was alright. For whatever reason I was a little disappointed I knew what it was 10 seconds into the song, but that could also just mean it rocks more and sounds more interesting than pretty much everything else on the radio rather than all their stuff sounding the same to me.

They announced more tour dates today again skipping the SoCal dates. At least we will know VERY soon about whether they are playing Coachella or not as that annoucement is imminent. If they are headlining no LA dates. If not, then I don't know why they've been torturing us LA folk.

4/27/12 - St. Louis, MO - Chaifetz Arena
4/28/12 - Tulsa, OK - BOK Center
