I am too, but I don't know...I think there's a difference between being inspired by classic rock and actually recreating it. Still, some of the riffs sound cool. I won't rain on the parade.

Sometimes rock and roll is great because of it's visceral feel. Excitement.

That's what I'm getting from this. It's hardly original.

But you don't need to reinvent the wheel to make a good rock record.

Overthinking=never enjoying anything.

"Mind's Eye" is sweet.

Martha and Hippy, thanks for the thread.

You've just soundtracked my 90 mile drive tomorrow.

Of course everyone is different, but that's kind of why I enjoy a lot of the "classic" feel of Wolfmother and Jet. It gets me excited

If Jet hadn't been all over radio and VH1 with "Are You Gonna Be My Girl", if they were some small band from Canada with 12 members, liked by all the "right" people, they'd be much more acceptable to the "right" people.

That said, I don't really like them.

They were on Conan O'Brien Thursday evening. I saw the one song they did. Had this 70s vibe about them... Don't know what song it was...

Wolfmother are HUGE right here in Australia! I had a listen to their debit album and while its harly anything original, it still fucking rocks I hope they will be one of Australia's most successful exports. I'm going to have to catch them live someday...

I bought it at Target yesterday, it's in my car changer, but I still haven't had a chance to listen.

Just kidding. I'm curious as to what you think of it, though

Yikes, Jet? Jet makes me want to shoot myself.

But most of the comparisons on this thread seem to be positive, so maybe I'll give Wolfmother a play.

I drove around a bit yesterday and got about three-quarters of my way through the record, and I freaking love it so far! Somebody's been listening to Queen; anyone else here the Tie Your Mother Down riff throughout Woman?
