The Black Keys: Attack & Release – [Record 185]

The Black Keys: Attack & Release.

Attack & Release is the fifth studio album by American rock duo The Black Keys. It was produced by Danger Mouse and was released on April 1, 2008. The sessions saw the band transitioning away from their “homemade” ethos to record-making; not only was it the first time that the band completed an album in a professional studio, but it was also the first time they hired an outside producer to work on a record.

Leading up to the recording sessions, drummer Patrick Carney wanted to change up the sound of his drums and envisioned two approaches to doing so. He said, “I had one of the Bonham reissue kits and I set that up in a live room. And then I knew I wanted a kind of ’70s dead sound too, so I did the whole ‘towels on the drums’ thing.”

Attack & Release debuted at number 14 on the Billboard 200. The album was ranked 83 on Rolling Stone ’​s list of the greatest albums of the 2000s. The song “I Got Mine” was number 23 on Rolling Stone ’​s list of the 100 Best Songs of 2008. In 2012, the album was certified gold in Canada.
