4 stars One of HAWKWIND's 70s' best albums

As for the first time Lemmy Kilmister enters the crew, Doremi Fasol Latido is the most agressive, rock-oriented of the band's albums. More stoner, less jazzy than their former acts, the space band puts adrealin in their music to launch their rocket to space!

The record opens with the thundering "Brainstorm" that announces clearly the color. Nearly 12 minutes of mindblowing heavy psychedelia, weird reverberation and sonic destruction anthem. The calm comes back with "Space Is Deep", another favorite from the band that projects you in the stratosfear. Lemmy's bass playing is excellent. "One Change" works good as a short transition ambient track to announce the space metal killer song "Lord Of Light". This tune is as essential as "Master Of The Universe" on "In Search Of Space". Now, time for acoustic songs, "Down Through The Night" and "The Watcher" very relaxing and inspired. The only flaw here is "Time We Left This World Today", a little repetitive and cacophonic by moments, which prevents the record from being a masterpiece.

The bonus tracks featured on the 1996 CD edition are very nice and rock! "Urban Guerilla" is powerful and "Brainbox Pollution" has surprising space-jazzy touch that fits perfectly to the song. "Ejection" has some echoes of "Satisfaction" by the STONES.

"Doremi Fasol Latido" is one of the most influential record ever in terms of stoner rock. Very loud, but very refreshing and powerful. A great moment of space metal!
