They are great live.
A lot of their stuff sounds the same, but its good nonetheless.

Sorry, no recommendations. I'm not a huge fan.
They are very popular here in Ohio, so I hear them a lot.

I only expect so much depth from them, being a 2 man band.

They actually have more than you'd expect, kind of like how The White Stripes were.

Favorite chill out track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsP4kBTa9X4

Seems like they're in every other movie preview these days too.

I'd say I listen to the Black Keys about half the time.

Magic Potion, Rubber Factory and Attack & Release are my top three from the Black Keys.

Rubber Factory is a great place to start, and there are always gems on all of their albums. Their new stuff is getting really samey though...

Sinister Kid/10 Cent Pistol remain 2 of my favorites. I'll share my BK playlist when I get home.

The 20 minute void solo finishing out 240 Years Before Your Time is amazing.

I think I listen to them most of the time my TV is on.

It's unfortunate that I long ago built such vehement hatred for them based on the few songs that companies kept using as shitty ad jingles.

They're actually quite good. I was surprised when a friend was listening to some bluesy, interesting rock music, and I asked what it was, only to be informed that it was the Black Keys. 'That band that makes ad jingles?!'

Marketing people really ruin music.
