Editors’ Notes This explosive debut from retro-rockers Wolfmother has everything we could ask for and a lot that we never dreamed of, shaking up their frenzied, old-school heavy metal with an encyclopedic litany of inspirations both new and old. Tunes like the hard-chugging "Joker & the Thief" and the boot-stomping "Apple Tree" mix the churning guitars of Black Sabbath with the bluesy, yowling vocals of Jack White. Set amidst the tough riffs of Nirvana and Soundgarden, it creates something wild, strange, and seemingly brand new.
