  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.

    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

    Wolfmother's self-titled debut album is a great rock record. It's a mix between stoner metal and 70's rock. It blends together very well. Every track sounds great. They have a very distinct way of playing music that really brings back old school rock and roll so well. The opening "Colossal" has a great riff right off the bat that really hooks you. and "Women" is a very playful song and "The Joker & The Thief" is the best song on the track easily. All In All, Wolfmother's self-titled debut album is a great rock record. A- Expand

    An album of pure power. They may have an element of blatent influence from the likes of Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath but i personally don't see that as a bad thing. This album offers rock at it's best, with riff's that don't confuse, but do leave you wanting more. Vocally this album also leaves you wanting more, the likes of 'White Unicorn' and 'Vagabond' show how rock vocals don't have to be perfect to be - well - perfect. Each track offers somthing new, but still remains one sound. It's loud, it pays tribute and offers somthing new all on one disc. Wolfmother have more than achieved with this masterpiece of an album.

    Wolfmother's debut album is awesome. It's a great hard rock album. They remind me of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, The Doors, etc. Andrew Stockdale's voice is annoying, sometimes, but he makes up for it with his awesome solos. It's a great example that rock's not dead. Expand

    Greast sound, reminds the 70s sound of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. You can't find much of this stuff in 2000s. Good debut album, powerful and ROCK! Expand

    It's savagely daring and ultimately brilliant.
