Sound — 9
As soon as I bought this album off of iTunes, without even listening to it, I knew I was going to love it. And wow, was I right. This album easily expresses Wolfmother's inspiration and roots, which include The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, and much more. I have a feeling that Wolmother might not be recognized by many people today. But even with this, their sound is of no other band today.
Lyrics — 9
The lyrics on this album are one of a kind. In most cases, they seem to come off as Psychedelic. The lyrics give you the type of feeling that everything around you is calm, which is unusual due to the heavy guitar riffs. The singer is the only singer in my opinion that sounds like Robert Plant. There is no doubt that this man has a great singing voice.
Overall Impression — 9
This album is great. If you're into classic rock bands such as Zeppelin, Sabbath, and Floyd. I would, without a doubt, purchases this album. You will not be disappointed. It is certainly not the best album in the world (i.e. Pink Floyd: The Wall) but, it is still a great album. The things that did catch my attention in a negative way was the lack of guitar solos and that there was no "fully" acoustic song. These guys are talented, and a few more guitar solos would have shown that off. The most impressive thing on this album, is probably the success Wolfmother had on bringing back true rock. If it were stolen I would just burn the songs to a blank CD from iTunes again.
