#28 of 2008: The Black Keys - Attack and Release

Thirty-Two Words: The Black Keys finally tinkered with their formula of bluesy guitar, raspy voice, and steady drumming. Danger Mouse jumped behind the knobs for this record, making it the Keys' most adventurous yet.

The Moment of Truth: Track 1 ("All You Ever Wanted") demonstrates both a new approach and a commitment to the old Keys' aesthetic.

Killer to Filler Ratio: 6:5 (Of course, this is after they start off with four straight killer tracks.)
