The Black Keys branch out on their third release. The songwriting on Rubber Factory is sharper, there’s more sonic variety, and all of their influences can be heard. The blues remain the foundation, but garage rock and shades of gritty R&B also erupt from their overheated amps. The Keys still stomp and shake like mad; they build on the ferocious attack of their first two releases, with Dan Auerbach’s heavy licks and Patrick Carney’s funky snare and cymbal shots as powerful as ever. Filthy hooks abound: just check out “10 A.M. Automatic,” “Just Couldn’t Tie Me Down,” and the slide guitar–driven “The Desperate Man” for starters. And for the first time in their discography, they deliver a ballad: “The Lengths,” a haunting track that combines acoustic guitar, lap steel, and unexpectedly tender vocals. The song also offers the space to take a breath, a dynamic luxury not available on The Big Come Up or Thickfreakness. Their spacious take on The Kinks’ “Act Nice and Gentle” is another surprise, and it's further proof that Auerbach is one dynamite singer. Three albums in, and The Black Keys are just getting better.
