Music CD - 2006

Rate this:
Devoted students of the 1970s school of heavy rock, the Australian trio Wolfmother unveiled its full-length debut in early 2006 to considerable buzz. Deftly walking the line between respectful homage and blatant mimicry, singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale sounds like Jack White channeling Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi--as opposed to Page and Plant--particularly on the stomping opener, ""Dimension,"" while the rest of the band ably follows in Sabbath-y suit. Still, Zepp by no means gets short shrift here, as the band pulls off an acoustic-to-electric switch-up on ""Where Eagles Have Been"" that is more than worthy of a spot on HOUSES OF THE HOLY. Although Wolfmother won't win any points for originality, the group's commitment to executing a seamless cross between two of the best hard-rock bands ever is a fairly tough MO at which to scoff. This is guilt-free headbanging at its finest.

Great album, though I must agree with davidb that there is little lyrical brilliance in this album. However, the instrumental part of these songs are great. These drum and guitar solos will truly blow your brains out, but make sure you turn the volume up real high to make sure you get the full experience.

Don't listen to this unless you are prepared to rock. And I mean rock like it's December 31st 1974.

This guys wail on their instuments invoking the spirits of a bygone area Rock and/or Roll. Don't expect any deep or insightful poetic lyrics like those of Lenard Cohen or Jim Morrisson. And don't come here looking for pretty voices. This is just a group pf guys blaring on their instruments song after song.

Prepare for your mind to be blown.
