With its gently plucked acoustic and Auerbach's fragile, forlorn vocal intoning, "A broken heart is blind," you might think that Little Black Submarines is an affecting folk hymn, especially when understated percussion and a swelling organ chime in.
As quick as you can say to yourself, "Wait, is this a different song?" everything changes, and a stunning arena-rock riff blows the roof off the dump, with Carney joining in with appropriate thunder.
Jimmy Page-esque licks dart in and out as the chorus, ratcheted to maximum overdrive, is reprised. It's all good, and then it gets better when a smoking blues-rock ride-out takes it on out.
