DAN AUERBACH

KEEP IT HID

2009-02-23

DAN AUERBACH KEEP IT HID As half of the blues rock group the Black Keys, Dan Auerbach has released a solo release that won’t disappoint. This CD begins with one of its slowest and best tracks “Trouble Weighs a Ton” This track has a given gospel feel to it. The next track “I Want Some more” is a full throttle rock tune with fuzzy guitars that will certainly please fans of the early Keys works. “Beautiful I should” is a short instrumental that reminded me of the Tom Waits track What’s He Building In There. “Whispered Words” starts slow & picks up steam and hits full throttle by the end. “ When The Night Comes” and the CD’s bookend “Goin Home” are both acoustic style blues tracks that show the softer side of this talented musician. This CD grows on me more after every listen and offers everything from Psychedelic rock, hard driving blues & beautiful acoustic tracks. This CD should not be Kept Hid but should be shared with lovers of music who are looking for something more. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
