Only the half-acoustic, half-electric “Little Black Submarines” (their most Zeppelinesque track) and an equally rich rendition of “Ten Cent Pistol” suggested the Keys have interest in being much more than a hearty dance band for kids who dig guitar crunch, not Skrillex synthetics.
Why willfully ignore several albums’ worth of fierce material? Given the level of reinvention at play on their last two albums, why not apply that same magic to choice nuggets?
And why pander so blatantly to the younger set by including the going-nowhere groove “Chop and Change,” simply because some will recognize it from the Twilight soundtrack? Why play that bland pap night after night and not include even 15 extra minutes from their more meaningful past? Since when did “Set You Free” and “10 A.M. Automatic” become second-class?
The Black Keys may be ready for the Big Time. Are we longtime fans ready to abide their memory loss?
This isn’t Wilco or My Morning Jacket; the Keys stick to a script, and there’s little reason to pore over it twice. As a fuzzed-up rush, however, what they offer is still an arresting experience that adequately fills large spaces and gratefully doesn’t rely too much on overwhelming visuals for energy.
No fantastical, Muse-like production or Technicolor Coldplay explosion from these dudes, just a general ambiance with two modes, stark or warm– and sometimes simultaneously, as when they switch off the screens, shoot a dozen colored lights in different directions and simply jam out like they’re ZZ Top circa the Bicentennial.
With the exception of the encore-closing “I Got Mine,” for which Auerbach momentarily went soaring for longer than just a killer lick, hardly any cuts were expanded or reshaped. Only the half-acoustic, half-electric “Little Black Submarines” (their most Zeppelinesque track) and an equally rich rendition of “Ten Cent Pistol” suggested the Keys have interest in being much more than a hearty dance band for kids who dig guitar crunch, not Skrillex synthetics.
