I gotta be honest here, and tell all of y'all I wasn't too impressed.
I'm not like a diehard fan of their music, but have a ton of respect for them. I kinda did go into the show with the attitude of 'let's see what you got Black Keys' though.
And before the show I was sure they would impress.
so you might say you ...
Had the time of your life?!
never heard of them
It's weird when bands get famous right when they start making way crappier albums than they were making before they were famous.
the Dan Auerbach solo album is goo.
I see what you're saying. And I agree, most rock and roll artist's early albums are infinitely better than their later albums. The story is as old as music itself.
I was just expecting more of a great rock and roll experience than I got. At least according to reviews, their reputation etc.
I still like them, and will check out their stuff, the live show was disappointing to me though.
as i recall, they just play the songs-- not much banter or horseshit and their newer stuff is the kind of sound that doesn't really translate well to big sprawling venues.... If it's outdoors, I see how the "feel" could get lost...
I saw The Cars in 1980, talk about no banter or horseshit.
The Cure was the same way the one time I saw them. So minimalist, it seemed like they were lipsynching to the album playing....
Sorry, I was thinking of the Black EYED Keys.
(and also doing a CSI Miami)
Got tickets to see them Thursday night. Think I might try to dump them now.
I saw them from some festival this year on webcast, wasn't that impressed.
