    I have not listened to this band much at all.

    They are opening for GnR in Vancouver though so I will see them.

    Any advice for getting to know and appreciate them beforehand?

    Pick a song, any song and you'll know pretty much what the rest of their songs sound like.
    this. I was psyched for their second album. But it's essentially first album 2.0. nearly zero growth, no risks taken that I have figured out yet. it's basically the same record. 

    a little disappointed. 
    I totally agree. I guess this is a one trick pony band. They are good at that, but can they mix it up? Or did they use up all their creativity already?
    same kinda thing when wolfmother came out. I loved that first record. then the second one came out....and the third.....and it was like....enough already. 
    I actually thought that Cosmic Egg sounded subtly distinct from their first album.

    Its always going to be heavy guitar with Wolfmother.
    I don't like ACDC. But I liked Wolfmother. there are obvious similarities. I guess I was hoping they'd evolve more than they did and not go the ACDC route and churn out the same song over and over, which is what it sounded like to me. maybe I expect too much. I mean, when I think of great bands I love, most of their first and second records show an obvious growth.

    I hear what you are saying.

    Cosmic Egg didn't elevate them in any way. The music was still good and I still listen to that album, but yes... it didn't take them to the next level. And, neither did any subsequent piece of work afterwards.

    The constant flux of band members has been troubling as well.

    I still really like them.

    I kind of disagree about Cosmic Egg....I thought that added to the vibe.  The last album though didn't impress me...I agree about the constant lineup changes.  At one point I think Wolfmother had some shows booked that they ended up changing to "Andrew Stockdale" since the entire band changed.

    Saw them the other night and loved the show. Awesome power and sound coming from two members. Like previous posts, it is shocking they only played about 55 minutes to one hour as a headliner and with two albums out. 13 songs played, but I think they choose short and sweet rather then add a few of their mediocre songs into the setlist.

    it has totally dropped off my radar. listened to the first one like crazy, along with the b sides. not this one.

    Same here. I listened to it once and I felt like it was just too much like the first album all over again, so never came back to it. Maybe I'll give it another listen and see if I feel any differently the second time around.

    i hadn't seen your post from july 2019 @eeriepadave. i really dig King. Sounds like it could be very interesting in the studio. For some reason in my head I hear a rap in the background during the chorus.

    there's a song on youtube called West Coast and it's apparently a Lana Del Rey cover. I think it sounds like it's studio.
