Yes they’re songs are extremely repetitive and they’re lyrics may be a bit tiresome but I really enjoyed their new album. Even though it contains similar beats to their older albums, the Black Keys’ new album “Turn Blue” is not something to complain about. They bright about cool, mellow vibes with new songs that are widely loved by their fans…. and especially ME. I cannot get enough of this album- I listen to it 24/7. Every time I listen to it, it’s almost like I can hear Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney whispering to me- each jam session comes with a new favorite song and new feel for the album.
So let me tell you a little bit of backstory on the Black Keys and I- the love affair started my freshmen year in high school; I had a friend who absolutely loved the Black Keys and loved sharing them with every person he could shove an earbud into. I often rode the bus with him and he soon found out that I had a massive crush on music which lead to some great conversations about rock and pop and all things insanely awesome. He told me of the Black Keys (which I had briefly heard of before) and lent me his beloved “El Camino” album. Years went by and I end up here, telling you guys about the rockin Black Keys. If you haven’t heard of them before I urge you to pull up YouTube right now and listen to “Turn Blue”- I personally think it’s the best of their albums.
After years of producing cold, somewhat repetitive music the Black Keys have finally found themselves. “Turn Blue” brings on a whole new level to slick music that one couldn’t resist if they tried. No matter who you are, where you’ve been or what you’ve done- the Black Keys will find you some way or another. And so I continue the tradition- shove an earbud in, put your feet up and listen to “Turn Blue”.
