  1. Wolfmother's ultraconfident tracks could unclog rock radio's weakened arteries. [28 Apr 2006, p.136]

    Wolfmother might not be the most original band on the planet, but they rock hard and, most importantly, without a trace of irony. [May 2006, p.91]
  3. This is purely primal, instinctive rock and as derivative as it may be, it still sounds awash with originality.
  4. 70
    Wolfmother have a canny knack for a tune. [Jun 2006, p.98]
  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. A young, kick-ass band with a dusty, unpolished garage sound, Wolfmother excels in what everyone else has already done.
  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.

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
