Acclaim For “Let’s Rock”:
“This is an album by the Black Keys called “Let’s Rock.” That's what it does.”
“Singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney bring a heightened purism too, emphasizing the power-duo force of their early records”
“In an era of blatantly computerized pop, ‘Let’s Rock’ flaunts basics from yesteryear: guitars, drums, vocals.”
-New York Times
“The Black Keys are rock royalty and to the relief of many, they aren’t quite ready to relinquish their reign.”
“The Black Keys have mastered the form of guitar-based music, and the craft at work on these dozen songs is something to behold.”
-Wall Street Journal
“A fast, fun slice of blues-rock … A return to what The Black Keys do best. These songs are tightly focused, their pleasures immediate … Brilliant.”
