I didn't discover them until around the Brothers release. So GTFO with your bullshitee....I never claimed to be a fan from their early days. But their early music is awesome. This new garbage with all the pop elements is a joke.
Some of you same people (I'm not saying YOU...but other posters) who praise the Black Keys for going radio friendly trash other bands/artists for doing the same.
The Black Keys could have gone several ways in terms of getting popular. They didn't have to remain a garage rock type of band...they could have gone to more hard rock or something. But if you don't hear pop music in Brothers and El Camino then you need to listen to more music.
