don't you tell me how i feel.

Black magic by Steele

Just when I was certain that the thrill was gone and that the Black Keys had nothing more to offer me, this song came along and sort of blew me away. This was on last year’s El Camino, which I dismissed vehemently after apparently only listening to half of it. Music “writers” – we make mistakes too!

They’d be smart to follow this groove and back off the more gimmicky stuff of recent years. I don’t have a problem with artists making money, but there’s something a little cynical – and boring – about the fact that Keys songs fit in so well on ads for Pizza Hut and cars these days. But this is not about being negative today. Nay, I wish to celebrate this dark, damaged thrasher that features organ music, a better-than-usual vocal delivery and sounds a little like “Stairway to Heaven.”
