9. Wolfmother - Wolfmother


:o Damn! wasn't expecting to see them on anyone's list... saw one of there first performances in Sydney (if not their first). Didn't really like them, reminded me of Jet attempting a Sabbath/Zep mix instead of their 70's rock/Beatles massacre... still shocked to know they have some attention over in NA though.

Isn't that a reissue of their demo, and thus ineligible?

I don't understand it, LOAF goes to all this trouble by volunteering to do this for everyone, and they can't even follow the simple guidelines he sets down. The amount of people putting lists "not in any specific order", two seperate lists, posting lists twice, unnumbered lists.

Is it so hard to follow a simple set of rules?

I didn't read the rules, just threw down my top 15 of the year. I included Skyforger because it contains new and unreleased material so I thought that it applied. None of my picks ever make the final list anyway as too few members of board also pick titles along these lines.
