Music Review | Wolfmother: Victorious
Brett Luft, Staff Writer
Universal Music Enterprises | Score: B+
Wolfmother is sticking to its roots and delivering a hard rock sound that hasn’t strayed much from the band’s 2005 self-titled released. But while the sound hasn’t changed, the content is still fresh, so diehard fans of Wolfmother should be pleased with the bands direction for the album.
The album starts off strong, reminding fans what makes the band special through some catchy riffs and a build-up of instruments until the classic hard rock vocals kick
For those who have moved on with their music tastes since 2005, Victorious might be a bit more difficult to swallow. The album has energy, but the content is lacking. A 35 minute album seems quite short in the modern music scene, especially when past releases by Wolfmother have stuck in the 40 to 50 minute range.
Wolfmother isn’t afraid to stay true to their sound, and it’s this comfort that makes Victorious worthwhile as the band reunites listeners with the classic sound that built the hard rock genre.
