2011 press. Double album on black vinyls with gatefold cover and lyric insert

The notion that rock must perpetually break new ground and reinvent itself is the odious legacy of 10 too many years of rock-crit navel gazing, and one that young Australian power trio Wolfmother stands gleefully on its head with their effusive debut. Hardly surprising to find a new generation’s reaction to a decade of shoe-gazing alternative rock angst to be a return to the guilty pleasures of unabashed, blues-based stadium rock–even if they seem unsure whether they’re channeling the early Zep scream n sludge frenzy of the single Woman or adopting The White Stripes stripped-down ethos on Apple Tree and elsewhere. They bravely mix suspect 70s lyrical thematics (White Unicorn, Where Eagles Have Been, Tales) with usual suspects like Sabbath (Dimension), stir in the neo-prog of Colossal, Witchcraft and Tales, (the latter complete with Tull-savvy flute break), then toast Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age on Mind’s Eye and elsewhere. Their frightfully funk-challenged Love Train gets promptly derailed, making one yearn for a hit of Eagles of Death Metal for relief, but its wreckage only proves how far Wolfmother is willing to push the envelope in forging their often intoxicating evocation of the past as future.
