The third album from guitar-and-drums duo the Black Keys was recorded in a cavernous former tire factory in their hometown of Akron, Ohio; the result, Rubber Factory, is high-impact scuzz-blues that aims for prime Hendrix and almost gets there, thanks mostly to Dan Auerbach's thick-ass guitar lines. A great cover of the Kinks' "Act Nice and Gentle" highlights what's missing -- tunes, namely -- but for now, the Keys are content to remind you that there are crossroads in East Akron, too.
