Album Review

This is what happens when you steep kids in their dads' Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, and Deep Purple albums for 20 years. Wolfmother is the debut album from this Aussie hard rock trio, and it pays some pretty decent homage to their antecedents.

The music is pure seventies hard rock - almost The Darkness without the tongue-in-cheek humour, although it never actually tips into taking itself seriously - it rarely misses out on the opportunity to throw in an organ solo or fuzzed up guitar solo. Fortunately, lead singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale carries it off, and then some.

Recorded in the same studio as Nirvana's Nevermind, the feel of the music is captured beautifully, warts and all, the way Jimmie Page always preferred it. Perfect for the kids, and perfect for any 40-somethings whose Zeppelin itch has needed scratching for a while.

Rating 8/10
