Despite all the difficulties surrounding that notorious 'second album', Wolfmother have gone and made a very strong album, which may be a surprise to those (including me!) who thought that they'd struggle to reach the heights of their excellent debut, particularly with a new line-up too. Yet while Cosmic Egg doesn't entirely match those heights, it is a remarkably strong effort, an impression that grows after repeated listens; admittedly I was unsatisfoed on first hearing the album.
To put it plainly, if you like Wolfmother, you will thoroughly enjoy this album. This is partly due to the fact that, despite the aformentioned line-up change, the key piece of the jigsaw remains: Andrew Stockdale. Wolfmother just wouldn't be the same without his potent vocals. It is an album full of the riffs and distinctive vocals that we have come to expect from the band, and although you might expect this heavy style to become a little tiring after 12 tracks, there is enough ingenuity to maintain the listeners' interest, which is certainly aided by quieter songs, such as 'In the Morning' and 'Far Away'. Other highlights are 'California Queen', Sundial', '10,000 Feet' and 'Cosmic Egg'.
Finally, this isn't a review that simply compares Wolfmother to a host of old bands - is it just me who finds these relentless comparisons somewhat tiresome? They are there own band, and deserve credit for adopting their own style, which, after producing an album of this quality, they clearly have in abundance.

We're all aware of the Sabbath/Zeppelin comparisons and I'm willing to push one step further to state that this album is a satisfying delight comparable to the classic 'Physical Graffiti'.

On first hearing 'Cosmic egg' I was deeply disappointed and wondered whether the schism in the band had led to their downfall. However, repeated listening will reward the rock fan a thousandfold until you come to realise just what a work of genius this album really is. Which is precisely how I view 'Phsyical Graffiti', an album I've worshipped for decades.

In fact '10,000 feet' could be regarded as the grandson of 'Kashmir' with its swirling, surging form. Close your eyes and you can just picture Robert Plant there leading the charge.

This is definitely NOT to decry Wolfmother as mere Led Zeppelin copyists - far from it. They're a brilliant original band in their own right, a very welcome slap in the face to pop pretenders masquerading as rock bands (yes, that means you MCR and 'Fall out boy).

'Cosmic egg' bows out on not just one high but two: the bombastic 'Phoenix' followed by the absolutely mesmerising epic 'Violence of the sun'. The album is worth getting just for these two tracks alone.

When wolfmother broke up last year I thought all was lost, but I was overjoyed when i heard they had reformed :) The new album is amazing in several ways: Firstly, the return of the catchy riffages we all grew to love from the first album, the soaring vocals from andrew stockdale (Robert Plant/ Ozzy Osbourne esque.), and the loud prominent bass lines. I really enjoyed Cosmic Egg, with Caroline being my top track. It is a must have album for all wolfmother fans and people who just want to have a hard rocking album. 5 stars all round :) Buy it! You wont regret it.

To be honest I didn't think a lot of this album upon the first few listens but I stuck with it and now it's on constant repeat.
The more you listen to it the better it gets. In fact, I'd go as far to say that it's a better album than their first.
Don't give up on it too early and you will be rewarded.

Since their first self-titled album, Wolfmother have changed and expanded their line-up. Even with this fuller sound they are still the Wolfmother we know and love. This is a very good collection of songs with a unique quality as good as their first album. All twelve tracks are excellent in my opinion.

I think this album is slightly better than the first 3 reviews here suggest and improves upon repeat listening. Good musicianship, particularly from the new bassist and whilst harking back to the early 70's it does appear a more distinct sound is evolving. This is a young band and they will get better. As always fine riffs and distinctive vocals from Mr S.

It's a well known fact that many bands suffer from "The difficult second album". No one though has suffered from this syndrome quite as much as Wolfmother and Andrew Stockdale. In 2008 the other two founding members of the band walked out on Stockdale leaving Wolfmother effectively as a solo project. So now just a year later, and with three new members, Stockdale and Wolfmother return.

So has the music fallen into second album traps as well? Unfortunately yes. It's not as bad as you may expect though. The first album bristled with raw power, huge riffs and phenomenal vocals. This second offering then feels like it is lacking a bit of conviction. The riffs are there but are just not as powerful. They don't deliver the originality that the was shown on the first album. As a result there are no astonishingly memorable tracks like `Woman', `Dimension' and `The Joker & The Thief'. All of this aside there are some good moments. As well as being the original name of the new line up `White Feather' is a more confident moment on the album with a lightness and sense of fun that you might expect from what is essentially a new band. `Sundial' is strong and aggressive with some serious distortion towards the end. `Far Away' is a reasonable offering as well, demonstrating the bands more melodic and relaxed side.

So it hasn't fallen totally into second album syndrome but it clearly has been hard for Stockdale and co.
