4.0 out of 5 stars The new oddysey 25 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
So many albums at the moment will open with their strongest track and then drift downhill into the severely mediocre and some would be forgiven when hearing 'Rockin Rocks' that this is what the Powderfinger guys are doing...erm, no.
This is their fifth album and the expectations after 2001's superb Oddysey no.5 have obviously further ignited the passion to make blinding, eclectic and often beautiful music.
There is not a weak track on this album with first single (baby i've got you) on my mind being one of an album of highlights.
There is definite progression through regression on this effort as some of the sentimentality is of oddysey has been replaced with the urgency of double allergic, but without treading any paths already explored to far.
Its classic powderfinger but with a slightly stripped down sound that makes this a sure fire hit, if this doesn't break them here in the UK something is seriously not right.
This is an album full of melody and beauty, sunsets being the best tune to show this but it retains an aggressive side we haven't seen for a while, particularly on stumbling-a killer tune up there with like a dog.
In short, its flawless and fans old and new will love it, maybe you should give it a try too...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure class from Australia's 2nd best band 9 Feb 2004
By Yim
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good album...it has a lot of variety on it and is not simply as one reviewer has suggested a straight rock album. To be fair there would be nothing wrong with that, but this album shows off Powderfinger's diversity and ability.
Perhaps the best track is (Baby I've got you) On my mind - voted best track of 2003 by Aussie Radio station MMM.
There is an acoustic, ballad feel to some of the slower tracks such as Love your way and sunsets which make a good contrast with tracks like Rockin' Rocks.
Arguably the album's quality tails off slightly towards the end, something its predecessor Odyssey Number 5 does not do. Difficult to decide which album is better: probably Odyssey but Vulture Street could overtake it over time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too down under for up here? 5 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
As one of the frontrunners in modern Australian rock, it's surprising that Powderfinger are virtually unknown in the UK. Now on their fifth album, this time named after the street they looked out on from their studios in Brisbane, they have again produced an album that rocks with the best of them. Ideally this album should be played loudly in a convertable car while touring the East coast of Australia, but this isn't an ideal world, so just give it some volume and let the vultures take you away.
Powderfinger excel in short, catchy tunes with powerful riffs, and some great lyrics on occasion; some of the tracks are a little too short however, the album just pushing 45 minutes in total - which isn't even long enough for a roadtrip down the shops and back in Australia. This is an excellent album however, something refreshingly diferent from the current UK punk and nu-metal scene. Probably all they need to succeed in the UK is a suitable pigeonhole for the music press to pop them in, how about Ayers rock?

5.0 out of 5 stars Why aren't this band huge in the UK? 4 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm writing this review in direct response to the person who said he was "officially disappointed" (as opposed to unofficially disappointed?!) by this album. True i don't have Odyssey Number 5, their previous album, so i have nothing to compare it to, but this album is anything but forgettable.
I was bought this album for Xmas by a friend who had just been in Oz, and looking at the case, my expectations weren't huge considering the first song was clumsily titled "Rockin' Rocks". But once you stick the CD in the stereo, my word they can write damn good rock songs, even if they can't give them good titles!
The album kicks off with a rock theme, and the second track "Baby I've Got You On My Mind" is probably the best song on the album, and one of the best songs I've heard this year.
"Since You've Been Gone" marks a turning point in the album, as things mellow out a bit till the excellent "Stumblin'". "Since You've Been Gone" is a great tune in a Vertical Horizon type mould and shows off Bernard Fanning's terrific voice.
"Sunsets" is a happy, go lucky, reflective song, with a great guitar intro. However, it is "Stumblin'" that really gets the album going again, with a rush of energy and a brilliant riff.
Another good song follows in "Roll Right By You", but is followed by the most lyrically accomplished song on the album. Its concern is the repeating pattern of war and misery in the world.
The penultimate song, "Pockets", is another one of the songs that i would consider for the best on the album. Its quite, understated intro slowly builds up, before the electric guitars and thunderous drumming kicks in, which makes this song the thing of beauty that it is.
All in all this is one of the best albums that i own, which in a collection of some 250+ is saying something. I've just ordered they're previous album, and have got tickets to go see them play live; that is a mark of how impressive this album is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powderfinger - A well kept secret 30 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Odyssey No.5 whilst travelling in Australia back in 2000 and have been mad about the band ever since. It's hard to pigeon hole them but if you like guitar based rock then you won't go far wrong with Vulture Street, or for that matter most Powderfinger albums.
Quite why they aren't selling copies in the bucket loads over here in the UK is beyond me, but still - some secret's are best kept quiet eh? Buy it and enjoy, then go buy the live album - you'd be mad not to. And if you get the chance, don't miss them live, quite superb.
