Balanced Attack (and Release)

It was a good late-night to morning transition with the leak of the Black Keys' new album 'Attack and Release'. Thus far, it's been an exceptional voyage and I expect more of the same (being only 6 tracks in).

Early review: The best way to describe it this early on would be a ghostly, folk-supernova with excellent lo-fi vs. hi-fi balance. Progressive at points and classic Keys at others.

The production by Dangermouse is impressive. Hints of 50's pop and Beatle-esque chord pops lend themselves to a Grey Album vibe but, this album is all Dangermouse x Black Keys.
