Sealed 2006 180gm HQ First Pressing. Magic Potion Is Gritty, Raw, Immediate And Sludgy. It Was Recorded At The Band's Studios In Akron, And The Only Real Difference Wth Their Earlier Albums Is That They've Become Even Better At What They Do. Here Are 11 Tunes Rooted In Blues And Riff-Heavy Rock, With Only Guitar And Drums Ripping Through Them Like A Loose Power Cable In A Thunderstorm. Check Out The Wildly Rockist Riff That Is At The Heart Of The Album's Opener "Just Got To Be," Or The Wily Shambolic Blues In "Your Touch." If Anything, Magic Potion Reminds The Listener Of The Late Great Red Devils King King Except They Have A Deeper Country, South-Of-The-Mason-Dixon-Line Feel To Them, Even On A Ballad Such As "You're The One," Which Feels Like It's Barely Being Held Together By Dan Auerbach's Voice, Which Unifies The Guitar And Patrick Carney's Drums. "Strange Desire" Is An Electric-Acid-Blues Moan Disguised As A Ballad, Whereas "Just A Little Heat" Inverts The Riff From Led Zeppelin's "Little Loving Maid " To Offer A Wide-Open Howl Of Distorted Guitar And A Slippery Snare And Cymbals Crash. For Those Who Feel That The Blues Have Nothing To Offer In The 21st Century — Especially Electric Blues, Which Has Spawned Countless Cookie-Cutter, Slick Deceptions Disguised As The Real Thing — Magic Potion Should Satisfy Deeply.
