It even took a while for "Ain't Nothing Like You" to grow on me- and in my book anything The Black Keys touch is like something straight from God. But now, I'm really liking it. Plus, what I'm keeping in mind is that I'm actually digging a track with Jim Jones... that's an accomplishment in itself. When even more talented artists get thrown into the mix as well, I see greatness. I see where you're coming from, though...

I'm falling in love with the album (leaked, of course). They maintain a good balance of hip-hop and traditional Keys with the backdrops, and all the artist contributions are good- yes, even Jim Jones.

"Hope You're Happy" is the most Black Keys-esque. Great track.

Dan Auerbach and Nicole Wray should release an album of duets.

Wow I had no idea what this was, I saw it on some hip hop blog a while back and downloaded it. Still haven't gotten around to listening to it, but I guess apparently I really should. That list of artists is unbelievable...

A few downs sports, short, but solid. So, NOE is basically Jay-Z lite?
