    .Cosmic Egg is a great follow up to Wolfmother's debut album. Andrew Stockdale is promising. The whole band is awesome. They always remind me of great bands, especially Led Zep. The album as a whole is cool. Eyes Open, Back Round and Violence Of The Sun are not that good, for me. Aside from those songs, the album is awesome. It's not creative or innovating but it is acclaimed as a classic awesome rock album. I especially enjoy New Moon Rising, Sundial, 10000 Feet and In The Morning. It is great. Expand

    As a follow up this album really does lack. Although there are certain tracks that remind you why you love Wolfmother (Cosmic Egg , 10,000 Feet) personally i just think the whole album seems abit bland, and drowned in noise, it's more like a collection of B-Sides that were not used for a reason. All in all, disappointing - but still worth adding to your collection.

    At first it doesnt sound brilliant, but it turns out to be pretty good. Oh and its pretty funny how the only person who rated this low is named MikP obviously a brainwashed fanboy who rates things without listening to them and just follow what Patton says blindly.

  1. Cosmic Egg [is] a mature sophomore effort, particularly if it's just judged on all the sonic textures Wolfmorther serves up, but as the album closes with a series of meandering mysticism it's hard not to miss Stockdale's previous reliance on nasty repetitive riffs.
  2. Cosmic Egg is the kind of album you'd quite happily pop on for the first part of a road trip while you're full of enthusiasm, but it'd quickly get changed at the first toilet stop.
  3. You could argue Wolfmother’s ballsy and carefree hi-octane music is all just innocent fun, ideally washed down with a six pack of tinnies. Yet it’s utterly devoid of soul and intelligence.
