Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

There’s no lack of young men playing hoary old ‘70s rock’n’roll, but the self-titled debut from Wolfmother mark out this hirsute Sydney trio as something special. While firmly grounded in the hard-rock spirit of Zeppelin and Sabbath, both this album’s artwork--a lizard-tailed Medusa pointing out across crashing waves--and the canyon-straddling scope of "Dimension" and "White Unicorn" suggest a grasp of progressive rock lore that elevates them some way above their lumpen peers. Replete with flamboyant organ solo, fast-mutating shifts in mood and tempo, and slightly hokey mystic lyrics, "Mind’s Eye" recalls no-one more that early Yes. Importantly, however, Wolfmother seldom let their proficiency get the better of them: the caterwauling "Joker & The Thief" saves fantasy and frivolity for the tale-telling, rocking with an elemental force reminiscent of the White Stripes, while "Witchcraft" revolves around two or three addictive, tight-circling riffs sparring in tight sequence (it’s true, though, that the appearance of a slightly overwrought pipe solo adds an unintentional comic touch). As anyone who’s enjoyed recent albums from Witchcraft and Circulus can confirm, however, there’s much fun to be had from bands brave enough to flirt with the ridiculous. Add Wolfmother to that list.--Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars A Crackingly Good Rock Album 25 Feb 2006
By David Lusher TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This Australian band's first album has all the hallmarks of a 1970s classic rock album. That is not a criticism but a compliment. What is more, if this album had been issued in the 1970s then it would in all probability been a great success, because it's that good. It's got guitar, organ, good vocals and is best heard loud. The songs are well crafted and there are echoes of a number of bands like Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Budgie etc. This Aussie trio rock! Wolfmother are a real find and they deserve a good measure of success with this excellent album. Standout tracks (there are so many!): 'Colossal', 'The White Unicorn', and 'Mind's Eye'. But there is something here for every rock fan - enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rock from a great Aussie band 29 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Being a big supporter of Aussie bands, it's great to see Wolfmother getting the kind of recognition they deserve. "Mind's Eye" is the best song to belt out with your mates on a nice long road trip, along with "Woman" and "Dimension."
Give it a go, it's definetely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic rock done good! 8 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
well firstly this is classic rock done if it was an original.whenever i listen to this album,i cannot feel like comparing with other bands from that era ie,led zeppelin,early black sabbath and even electric light orchestra!

this power trio from down under push all the right buttons from the good time rock sensabilities of "woman" to the story telling stomper that is "joker and the thief",and you have the perfect,four to the floor rock opus.nothing pretentious or preening,like a lot of acts out there,just good honest tunerage!

the stand out for me has to be the awe inspiring "city of dreams"that for me,sounds early electric light orchestra(ticket to the moon)it has that feel,GREAT!

so people,if you want a good,honest rock album that never fails,i assure you wolfmother do it.well the did it for me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Derivative but kind of fun. 26 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
Let me just start by saying that there is not one part of this album that does not remind me of another band (usually either Led Zep, Black Sabbath, the White Stripes or Deep Purple - the beginning of City of Dreams even reminds me of Tenacious D!). Some might say this makes them hopelessly derivative and not worth the attention they are currently recieving. Maybe this is the case, but lets face it, who else is doing this sort of thing at the moment? They play with enough energy and confidence to merit repeated listens and I bet they would be a blast live.

The lack of any real instrumental prowess (even the solos are pretty basic) and lyrics that rival some of Led Zeps more fantasy moments in ridiculousness, leads me to believe that they don't have too much of a future. After all there's only so many one riff songs about unicorns and magic cities one can take. But whilst they're around I'll enjoy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS ROCKS AND THEN ROCKS SOME MORE 3 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Wow wow wow this takes me back to when I was a kid and first got into rock music.

It's not trying to be or say anything, it just ROCKS, if you love old prog rock then this is a must buy, you won't regret it. Let your senses go and just enjoy.

I bought it out of sheer curiosity, and it has turned out to be one of the best albums of the year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back To The Roots Of Rock 9 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a middle-aged fan of Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Hawkwind & many other rock bands that originated in the late 60s/early 70s, it's great to hear some youngsters paying homage to those great bands and coming up with an album which, if I didn't know any better, was some re-released obscure album from that same era.

This is a good album but not quite a classic album. As other reviewers have said, it's a bit repetitive in places (but then again, so were some of the great heavy psych/prog albums of the 70s) and the fusion of Robert Plant-type vocals with heavy & bassy early Sabbath type instrumentation doesn't "quite" gel with an old duffer like me. But then again, I paid less than a fiver for it on Amazon Marketplace and it's definitely worth that.

If you're a "hip young thing" reading this review, then definitely give it a spin and, if you like it, go and check out some early Sabbath and Zeppelin as well so you can understand the music your dad was listening to (and hopefully still is).

In a time when it's cool once again to listen to rock music, there's a wealth of new bands playing classic rock music and lots of good music to listen to - and alongside Black Stone Cherry, Wolfmother stand out from the rest of the crowd as two new bands who understand how to make good, loud and not taking itself too seriously rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW !!!!!!!! 13 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
When it come to music, I'm extremely hard to please, yet this is the first album in years that has literally has blown me away. Superb!

It's high energy yet clever, it's loud but beautifully melodic; it's simply a fantastic listen that both rocks and moves the soul! If you like your rock in its purest form, this is the album for you. It has hints of classic Zeplin, Purple and Ozzy but is driven with a fresh enthusiasm and energy. I love it!
