Performer Notes
  • Swapping out his rhythm section, Andrew Stockdale proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he's the mastermind of Wolfmother on COSMIC EGG, creating a second record that is essentially a replication of the first, equally enamored with all the thick, heavy rock of the '70s, specifically Sabbath and Zeppelin, and tempered with a little bit of Jack White caterwaul. All the sounds remain the same, but the songs have changed: with the occasional exception, such as the Stripes-ian salute "White Feather," Stockdale backs away from simple, brutal riff-driven songs, preferring churning exercises in heavy fantasy, sometimes colored with some Deep Purple organ. It's an effective way to show off a tighter, capable band, one that can deliver a serious gut-level punch, and one that is spending more time fusing their influence instead of delivering straight-up hero worship. And, in a sense, that makes COSMIC EGG a mature sophomore effort, particularly if it's just judged on all the sonic textures Wolfmother serves up.

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'In the Castle' is the epic, with Stockdale hitting Valhalla-scale high notes....There isn't a boring moment..."

Spin (p.72) - "[T]he band's stomp and swagger feel refreshingly earnest and expertly executed, reasons enough to take Wolfmother seriously."

Spin (p.30) - Ranked #24 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2009" -- "[A]n intoxicating brew of rainbow ballads and stoner-blooze battle cries."

Q (Magazine) (p.115) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he epic closer 'Violence Of The Sun' displays a healthy sense of ambition....Best heard loud..."

Clash (magazine) - "COSMIC EGG reads like a who's who of hard rock, with nods to Guns N' Roses, Soundgarden and Hendrix."
