    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.

    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

    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 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

    If this wasnt a debut album i would have given it 7 but this is a great beggining to a awsome aussie band. The hard Zeppelin rock is great If this wasnt a debut album i would have given it 7 but this is a great beggining to a awsome aussie band. The hard Zeppelin rock is great for anyone who likes semi heavy rock. Expand

    Wolfmother presents music that admittedly pays homage to the great heavy metal acts of the 1970's (Read: Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Wolfmother presents music that admittedly pays homage to the great heavy metal acts of the 1970's (Read: Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, etc.). While the band does not get many points for originality, it does what it does with enough guts and bravado to make up for wearing their influences on their sleeves. ...And no, Matty Rue Morgue, they are not a White Stripes rip off. While Andrew Stockdale has a bit of a shrieking quality to his voice, he doesn't turn himself into Jack White. And besides, Wolfmother doesn't beat blues standards to death. Also, they use more than two chord progressions. (Btw, I actually do like the white stripes and quite a lot in fact. They're just a completely different animal.) Expand
