    I dig what Lonesome George did with it some decades back, too

    I don't think I've ever NOT loved Dan Auerbach's guitar tone on any of their albums.

    A drummer acquaintence got mad at them for this album

    and yeah, they changed the formula up, but I think I understand why.

    sounds like the 2% version of the zz top cover or the cowboy junkies version, which is odd, cuz Auerbach actually records the real folks. so, i think i'm more responding to the production which just doesn't sound evil enuf.

    totally fair criticism, given the title/subject matter of the song
    it kinda sounds like allman bros gettin high and groovy, as opposed to a sly stalker/killer's song

    reminds me a lot more of their earlier sound like on Chulahoma
