4 stars You have to get a start... This was the start of the space ship Hawkwind. Very jazz like album IMO. Long instrumental, few vocal parts, and lots of drug atmosphere. 8-10 minute tracks like Be Yourself are the essential for that album. Also Seeing It As You Really Are. Basicly Hawkwind after the debut lp didn't change much in early 70's. It the same "one guitar riff, and the we'll see" idea. But in different packages, with differnt sound. The sound here is not so spacy yet. And two things that are really cool here - Hurry On Sundown, a great track, very bright and colourful; Cymbaline - bonus track on the cd release, Pink Floyd cover. Great work on that one guys! I don't like to be hard for debuts. A solid 4 it is.
