CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

A welcome and appropriate return from one of the best bands to emerge in the last decade.

AllMusic

Victorious amounts to little more than a thrown-together mess.

No Ripcord

When Stockdale steps out of the box-checked zone, embarking upon awful rock ballads and hideous power-pop songs, his work starts to falter spectacularly. Victorious is premium Wolfmother in places, and pretty much abominable in others.

Initially the album surprised me, considering how badly the album was received by critics as well as people on here. The instrumentation is too messy and lyrically Wolfmother is quite bland, but despite those things, the album is an enjoyable listen. Overall Victorius is a rather cliche rock record. The riffs are very easy to digest, which maybe explains why the album feels a bit too one dimensional.

All the songs feel like they were made for a sitcom, where an edgy teenager is sitting in ... read more
