5 stars This is it the ultimat space trip, and one of Hawkwinds very best albums if not the best, it rocks harder then a space ship in a metroid storm, this one got everything from small spoken robert calvert poetry numbers that glue toghter the whole thing perfectly, too long space jams with lots of nice effects and noise and great sining and playing from the whole band. The songs are pretty much build up from the same riff reapeted over and over but stranglely it dont get boring some songs are realy long around 10min the longest but they still feels pretty short, they almost put you in a kind of trans. Its hard to name the best songs everything is exelent they have taken the best songs from thiere 3 studio album they hade made by this point and also some songs that wasent realesed at this point. So if your only going for one Hawkwind album this is the one, one of the best live albums, where if you close your eyes you can almost imagine you are there. I got the 1996 edtion with 3 bonus tracks You Shouldn't Do That, master of the universe and a much longer born to go, not that diffrent from the orginal versions but still nice. All in all this is a heavy proto metal space rock classic that shuld be in every music collection. 5 stars.
