Hippy! Do you like the Wolfmother record?

Should I buy it at Target for 8 bucks? Does one get used to the singer's slightly annoying voice?


(I've asked this two other times, but you haven't seen them yet.)

!!!!!

I do indeed like this album It took me a couple times through to get used to the voice (and it changes throughout the tracks).

But I think this is one that will grow on you... interesting concept to the album. I suggest reading this paragraph about the production of the album as I think it helps appreciate the album: (taken from www.wolfmother.com)

"Throughout this process Myles, Andrew and Chris remained committed to retaining the raw, emotive punch of their live performances. Everything was directed toward capturing "the perfect feeling" rather than "faultless performance". The result is a record on which reckless abandon and glorious imperfections underpin the most evocative moments. "


I bought it at Best Buy for $8 and I think it was worth it

Sorry for the delay in response

Ok then.

I'll hit Target on the way home from school. My puppy dog can wait a little for her walk.


(Thanks.)

I actually saw them on a VH1 or MTV thing on new artists. Usually those are about sucky bands who need the promotion.


Oh, and I read something about them before that in the LA Times.

My flatmate's a big fan of them, though I hadn't heard of them beforehand. Since, though, I've also seen them come up in discussion in prog circles, though opinions have been mixed with none particularly outstanding.

I don't think I've heard even one complete song so I can't really judge.

Ah... I go by what I like. I decided to check them out after hearing "Dimension" and liking it.

Well, if that isn't an upload request, I don't know what is I'll be back soon...

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!

I had a listen at iTunes. Sounds cool, but wow, I thought I was listening to Led Zeppelin cover band from the 70s. I'm still trying to decide if this is a good thing or not. I mean, even the mixing of the drums sounds dated.

I'm a classic rock chick all the way, so I was instantly drawn to the sound exactly for that dated feel.


Post or PM me your email addys and I'll send you some mail

mininova has it. Took 10 minutes to finish the torrent.

I'm hearing Beatles/Horselips/Rush up the whazoo on "Tales From the Forest of The Gnomes."

Nice stuff.
