In this week’s slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Will Hermes raves about the Black Keys’ El Camino, which he says is a successful “attempt at staying true to the spirit of that piece-of-shit minivan on the album cover – similar to their first touring vehicle – while reimagining it as a pimpmobile.” Also, Jody Rosen praises the Roots’ ambitious new concept album undun and laments the potential of the unfinished tracks on Amy Winehouse’s first posthumous release, Lioness: Hidden Gems.
