Rolling Stone Magazine Names The Black Keys "Brothers" the #2 "Best Album of 2010"

By malcolm Published: December 7, 2010

The Black Keys awesome 2010 just got a little more awesome (awesomer?).
Rolling Stone Magazine named the Akron duo's Brothers the #2 best album of the year, behind Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

The band's sixth full length album the magazine wrote:

The duo boil it down on their best record yet: vivid tunes stripped bare and rubbed raw, with hot splashes of color and hooks popping through like compound fractures. "Howlin' for You" smears gnarly blues over a glam beat cribbed from Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Part 2," while a cover of Jerry Butler's broken-hearted hit "Never Give You Up" takes Dan Auerbach's falsetto-flashing soulman persona to the next level. It's rock minimalism pushed to the max.
