WOLFMOTHER - Wolfmother - 2006 - Album review

WOLFMOTHER - Wolfmother - 2006 - Album review
HIGHLIGHTS: White Unicorn - The Joker And The Thief - Vagabond
SOUNDBITE: I had a vision/ Of festive days/ She's like an eagle/ In the misted haze..
RATING: A hairy, sweaty 5/5

I can't for the life of me understand why this lot's album didn't get released over here sooner. If a band was described to you as sounding like Ozzy was singing, the b*st*rd love children of Led Zeppelin and Queens of the Stone Age were playing the instruments and furthermore that they looked like Cream around the time 'Disraeli Gears' was released you'd a) dismiss me as being a even more of a gushing tw*t than anyone who starts screaming with hysterical excitement about the latest non-event in the Big Brother house and b) that no band could possibly live up to that sort of hype. And you'd be wrong. This sounds wicked and I don't care who hears me say it. If you buy one rock album this year buy this one. Then play it loud wherever you go so that everyone else can hear it and never mind immature little tw*ts who are worried their favourite band will become 'too mainstream' and 'sell-out'. In fact do it purposely to p*ss them off.
