The Voices Calling Me…
What makes this song extra special is how it transitions from an acoustic ballad to hard rock. To be fair, I can’t recall The Black Keys having a bad or mediocre track. In my opinion, though, this is one of their best songs ever. Still, I like how this reminds me of all the classic songs I used to listen to and love until this day.
“That whole ending is the first take we played, just figuring out what we’re doing and riffing on that idea. That’s why that part of the album feels the loosest. It’s how Dan and I play. It’s live in the studio, just guitar and drums, with the instruments bleeding into each other.” – Drummer Patrick Carney
It does make you realize that rock ‘n roll is still alive and has not been forgotten. I mean, the first time you hear this song, you get a bit of “Stairway to Heaven” feel. It’s amazing.
