Yes, you can hear the influences esp. Zeppelin, BUT the music is undeniably fresh and modern and very much their own. I drove from New Orleans to Houston, about 700 miles round trip, to see them 11/28/06 and it was totally worth it. I got stuck in a traffic jam that only moved 3 miles in and hour and a half -- still worth it. And I had a 6'5", 300+ lb dude jump on my foot -- still worth it! These guys totally rock! They are retro enough to appeal to both old fogeys and younger people who admire 70's bands, but yet they are wholly fresh and modern with a sound that is unique in today's market. Although mostly in teens and early 20's, there were people from 15 to 45, all rocking together, and it was a beautiful sight! This is a definite must have CD! AND if you ever get the chance to see them live -- DO IT!!! And if Dead Meadow or Silvers 'un Pickups is opening for them, get there early enough, they're worth it too,

Wolfmother Brings the sound's of the 70's to us young one's who weren't around to experience the led, sabbath and the like. It let's the older rocker's live those day's and us younger rocker's to finally live in them. To say they are confused is just crazy talk. They along with the raconteurs are bringing rock back from the dead. And I'm talking about real rock not all the imitators out there right now. Get this cd and enjoy every moment of it.

Although many (most?) of the influences mentioned are present, I have to disagree that the record is only biting on the past. In my opinion, this is one of the best records released this year to date. The songs are catchy as hell and although unique from each other, they still share some sort of phonic thread that you can't quite put your finger on. Why only 4 stars? I'd already been listening to the original recording (mp3's) for a month by the time the album was released in North America. The US version has been completely re-recorded and mixed, and has lost a lot of the grit and charm of the Australian original. Still good, though.

i just discovered this band after hearing "Joker & the Theif" in the movie "The Hangover".I listened to this music in the 70's. Although it certainly stands on it's own, the music sounds to me like all my old favorites; Black Sabbath, Led, Rush, Uriah Heep, with a little Cream and Traffic thrown in. It's great to have new music that takes me back to my youth, but stays original. Gotta love Jack White's vocals!

Stephen Thomas Erlewine was completely wrong when he said "but even at their best, they never banish the specters of the bands that they desperately mimic throughout this promising but muddled debut. They have enough of a good thing going here to suggest that they'd be a killer live band, but not enough to make this record all too memorable on its own terms." Wolfmother has a sound of their own, which happens to be similar to popular classic rock bands such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. People may be quick to label the band as a bunch of imitators, but I have yet to hear another band of our time who sounds like Wolfmother. I cannot stop listening to this album, it is incredible, especially "Colossal." Wolfmother is the BEST band I have ever seen live, especially for a trio. AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Queens Of The Stone Age, and WOLFMOTHER are the best bands...EVER.

I just saw Wolfmother live at street scene August 4th and holy crap, these guys rock! I had heard only a few songs prior to seeing them perform but now I'm a diehard fan.These guys put on a performance unrivaled by any other band (besides Tool). So what if you can hear the inspiration from Zep & Sabbath? At least its not some convulsion-like moving emo band with half their hair in their faces and the other half sticking straight up.Those are the bands copying evryone else, not these guys. This music is such a releif to hear in this day and age especially for teenagers like me who love the classic 70's rock but weren't around to enjoy it. Let us enjoy our Wolfmother! After all, you old music critics already had Zep and Sabbath.

I heard about this band in Rolling Stones 10 bands to watch in 2006.this was in Feb. i believe??? Anyway I immediately searched the internet and found out that the CD wasn't going to be released until' May so I "patiently" waited and.........the wait was DEFINETELY worth it!!! A new band hasn't rocked my boat since the White Stripes in 2002. Wolfmother's lead singer at times reminds me of Jack White but then their sound/vocals are also reminiscent of Black Sabbath and shades of Zepplin. All the while remaining truly unique!! Some songs i really rock out to are "Colossal","Woman", "Mind's Eye" & "Dimension". But I REALLY like EVERY song on the CD and that DOESN'T happen too often. Definetely worth a listen. I love it more and more with every listen!!!!

Fortunately I listened to Wolfmother before reading the BN review. But then again "professional" reviews are usually never based on what audiences like, just the idiosynchratic whims of the reviewer, who in most cases is usually a failed musician. Now, on the the good stuff. Wolfmother is just what the doctor ordered for this 44 year old former long hair. Yes I can tell that there are influences from other musicians and groups, but none of them are putting out music anymore are they? Wolfmother is putting out music that I like, and by the way, my 17 year old son, who thinks they "rule" is the one who got me to listening to them. Sooo... lesson to everyone. Don't give any weight to profesional music critics, and go buy the Wolfmother CD!

I'm surprised by the B&N review as well. I thought this album was amazing and I highly recommend it! Sure, I can hear many of their influences, especially Led Zep., Black Sabbath, and Hendrix, but they put a modern spin to the old and the album really is loud with fury! The cover art matches the lyrics and whole feeling of the music, mystical and heavy! Every once in a while a new band fascinates me and they did a good job in convincing me to purchase the cd. Go out and purchase Wolfmother!

There's a lot of groups claiming to be hard rock groups. Wolfmother is simply born from the spirit of rock. You'd swear these guys jumped right out of the 1970's. I thought they were from the 70's at first. Coolest rock group around hands down.

How dare they call wolfmother confused, this album is amazing, their music is great, its real.There's so much junk out today, stuff thts all the same, or mimics of great stuff tht just ruins it. Wolfmother's music is actually worth listening to. the lyrics work fine too, thats what makes it so good, the fact the song is called 'white unicorn' but is rock is awsome.
