Brothers has a sexy, bluesy feel. The band have clearly grasped influences from the likes of Sam Cook and Curtis Mayfield and this is apparent on the likes of Never Gonna Give You Up. Dusty stories of heart break and cuckold men dominate with a foreboding sense that what you want might just be out of reach but that’s okay. Unknown Brother is warm ode to a sibling that will never be forgotten while I’m Not The One is pretty self explanatory. The Black Keys have always had a certain gutsy edge to them but Brothers adds a depth of soul to their considerable repertoire. One minor issue is that at 15 tracks deep, it is perhaps a touch too long but it remains an album that has immense quality in its quantity.
