Sound — 10
The sound of Wolfmother is reminiscent of older classic rock bands, such as Sabbath, Zeppelin, Blue Oyster Cult, ect. It's a good sound, pretty catchy stuff. I don't really know of any concept for this album. This really seems like one of those throwback bands that finally made it. Not only is it a classic rock throwback sound, but it also has parts of today's modern rock to balance it out. Big chords, catchy beats, and the vocals of Andrew Stockdale all accompany each other for one amazing album.
Lyrics — 9
Stockdale is a solid singer, compared to modern rock he's pretty awesome. Not all of the lyrics really make any sense, but if you hear some of the odd sounds and themes these guys come up with, you really can't be surprised that they confuse the hell out of you. The lyrics are pretty decent aside from that, and his voice is great for the type of music they play. If you can get past the sometimes illogical lyrics, you'll love it.
Overall Impression — 10
A pretty awesome album. I really can't point out one bad track. What's impressive about this album is the different styles and types of songs on the album. You have upbeat pop-rock songs like Love Train, straight classic rock sounding tracks like Dimension, modern rock songs like Woman, and a few acoustic songs as well. Very well rounded. The only thing I hate is that we have to wait for another album! If I lost it completely, I would definitely pick this up again.
