  1. Wolfmother's ultraconfident tracks could unclog rock radio's weakened arteries. [28 Apr 2006, p.136]
  2. One of the stronger debuts of 2006.

    Amazingly, it somehow avoids the drivel of The Darkness by sheer gleeful abandon. [Jun 2006, p.98]
  4. For all the strengths of the more straightforward songs, it’s the more adventurous fare on the album that hints at Wolfmother’s true strengths.
  5. They're songs infused with bite and bile, quite ridiculous, very bombastic - and let's make this point one more time - utterly, utterly thrilling.
  6. An intriguing garage-rock thread runs through Wolfmother's songs, broadening their sound. [4 May 2006, p.56]
  7. It’s not that Wolfmother are all that bad. It’s just that everything there is to say about them is best said by immediate reference to another band and Wolfmother always come up short in the comparison.

    This band has a great rock sound. They have attitude and don't have anything to prove-they just bang away. They have mild diversity in their tunes and strive to make you bang your head. Got me going! I'll see them in concert 10/03/06. Can't wait. Expand

    Great band, I don't compare music. If its good its good no matter who it sounds similar to. This shit is uber.

    As long as they dont steal riffs, Wolfmother is godly and brilliant, this score is definatly underrated. They arent that original but they are alot better than most stuff these days. Expand

    There's something about Wolfmother that's so trashy and so loud that you just can't hate them. However, i have to agree with Dan S, I don't expect another album. Expand

    this album is pretty awesome. there are no weak songs really. they do sound like allot of other bands sometimes (sabbath, zeppelin, white stripes, qotsa) but they pull it off. i also agree with the guy who mentioned the sword, although the sword are more metal and wolfmother will probably have a broader appeal Expand
