I've bought two different versions (Std. Ed. and 2xLP) and both have been warped pretty bad.
Anyone else have this problem?

Gone a bit poppy, clap, clap clap, clap, clap clap, and I'm not not feeling it, this is a long way from where they started, and more than a little boring. Has anyone else noticed the similarity between "Little Black Submarines" and "Stairway to Heaven"?

The is one of those albums that will go into my gems list. Literally every song is awesome. Hope these guys are around for long time!

I got interested in the Black Keys, because of Auerbach's role in Dr. John's recent LP, which was almost as good as the latter's Tribal from two years ago. I saw El Camino many times, but I was deterred by the inflated prices charged for a new record.
Now, listening to my first Black Keys record for the first time, I have to admit I do not understand the fuss about the band. Some of the music is good, Nova Baby is boring AOR, some of the song writing is fine, but on the whole, it sounds like a good punchy Detroit version of T. Rex, which is ok, if it wasn't for the superfluous attention and reverence paid to this music.
Despite being somebody who considers individual access to cars being a global pestilence rather than a blessing, I think the artwork - cars parked only devour space and no other precious resources such as silence, fuels and cleaner environments - as the best factor of this album.
3/5 is ok.
A double vinyl version is utterly superfluous, only required to familiarize lads in their mid-twenties with the idea of long term investments, thus acting as a preparing step before their capital is directly relayed into the stock market.
