call me crazy but this doesn't sound too bad.
its ok probly a 3-3.5
From what ive heard on triple j its meh
this is probably as good/bad as the first album, depending on your point of view
Going by the lead single, the music is a little different... but Stockdale is still Stockdale.
first song is great.
Digging: Throwing Muses - Throwing Muses
Bring on the hate.
i got no beef with the wolf
I'll probably enjoy this, even though they look like a mess on stage these days.
"I'll probably enjoy this"
Deep down i knew that comment was coming.
I liked their first album for the most part and almost wrote off this album after hearing "New Moon Rising", but I'm pretty surprised at how good this is. Might have to get this now.
Ive never been a very big wolfmother fan personally. They feel like a zeppelin cover band to me half the time.
The first song had some pretty fun riffs, new moon rising is almost lame though. I'll probably give this album a shot after I bother with Grinspoon's new one as i've just discovered they're awesome again.
Aussie rock ftw!
It's hit or miss, i'll give you that. But when you find the gems they are arguably better than most american or brit rock.
it depends what sub genres you incorporate under rock but regardless i'm gonna have to disagree
and grinspoon is awful
I dunno, bands like The Living End, Karnivool etc are arguably better than alot of the shit that gets thrown on radio nowardays.
Dead Letter Circus and Trail Kennedy are pretty good Aussie rock bands.
the living end and karnivool are p bad
what would you call dredg? because theyre better than karnivool
dredg are prog/art rock.
Karnivool are more prog/metal
i fucking hate genres sometimes. because you get bullshit like that ^
"the living end and karnivool are p bad"
Living End bad? gtfo! I've never heard anybody say that.
"i fucking hate genres sometimes. because you get bullshit like that ^"
Exactly, genre's are rubbish.
Do they suck as much as having no willy?
(I'm guessing you can answer my question)
"Once you hit 12 you'll start to realise the importance of genres."
yeah of course its important to have genres, but differentiating by saying stuff like "this is art/prog rather than art/indie/alternative" or "this isnt hardcore its metallic hardcore" is so fucking dumb.
I agree with que4. but honestly who the hell are you people?
yeah i know what you mean Palace, but you gotta consider that there are people who will bitch over the amount of "metal" in different forms of hardcore etc. converge is a prime example. some call them mathcore, some call them metalcore, and some call them hardcore. this is what pisses me off about genres, people overuse them, argue over them and confuse them so that in the end theyre more of a hindrance than a help when categorizing or finding similar music etc.
Secret Wolfmother fans. They just bash them to try and be cool. Lol at the genre thing too, LETS HAVE NO GENRE'S. YEAH? I HATE FINDING BANDS THAT SOUND SIMILAR TO WHAT I LIKE.
Wolfmother, are average at best, and from what I've heard of this its about a 2.5 MAYBE 3
I agree with you. I wouldn't listen by choice. Just talking about the genre thing mostly.
The first part of my comment was to Alligator.
EDIT: Last statement by qwe is correct though.
i never said get rid of genres, i was saying that people "over-genreize" things if you get what i mean. it's unneccessary. i also find it's easier to ask people "i like these bands, what dyou think i would like?" especially on this site
Yeah. I know what you mean. Just thought you were one of those over the top guys. All sweet.
im pretty over the top what can i say
I think genres are important to an extent. It's when all these subgenres come into play when it starts to get a little bit ridiculous and, in all honesty, pretentious. Certain artists try to fit within a category or 'scene' and that's when you end up with an obscene amalgamation of genres that they try to conform to.
As for the Wolfmother album...hmmm...
Yeah, i get ya qwe. I just heard somewhere that dredg were art rock so i just rolled with it. Sorry to grind your gears.
I like the album, but Ive always liked the band. no reason to hate seriously guys
i like these guys, i didnt know this was coming out
I did Command-F-Mike Patton and was sad to get no results
Wait I just saw Kill's link. It's all good.
really a new album? ill see if i can find it in the stires next weekend
