I honestly canít remember what Powderfinger or Welfare mother sounds like at all. Itís been over 5 years since I last heard the album
My main memory at the time was the songs were repetitive and I wasnít impress with Neil Young as a vocalist.
In any case it would be interesting whether my opinion has changed when I eventually get back to that album. Itís not inconceivable of me revisiting an album I previously dislike and then the album clicked
