The Black Keys - Rubber Factory (2004)

Annino, this one's for you. Believe it or not I've been busy lately so I've been unable to update this as much as I've wanted to. Enough of that, though. This album is something I bought on a whim back in '04 when it came out. I heard the song "10 am automatic" on MTV2 at 4 am on one of their underground music shows and decided that the raw energy, badass fuzz guitar riffage and Dan's amazing voice were more than enough reasons to check them out. I'm sure glad I did. I posted Thickfreakness on here before and it seems a little lesser known but I've decided that even though this is the album that kind of thrusted them out in the open, it is far superior and warrants a listen from anyone who likes gritty, intense, heartfelt garage/blues rock.
