2 stars This is the first Hawkwind album (in chronological order) to get a two star rating from me (all their previous albums I gave only one star). The Assault & Battery/The Golden Void part is very good and the first Hawkwind song I have heard that I actually like.

Opa-Loka, on the other hand, is tedious! Six minutes of the same drum loop going on, and on, and on, and on... Are they serious? The Demented Man is again a good one (but not good enough to sit thru Opa-Loka for if you are listening on vinyl!), very Pink Floyd-ish song, in the Wish You Were Here-style, but not up to Floyd- quality.

Magnu has a good melody, but the drums are again extremely repetitive, only this time we get a proper song on top of it! It doesn't happen very much in this song and it surely doesn't deserve to be almost nine minutes long.

The instrumental Spiral Galaxy 28948 is very good, and is actually the only track from this album apart from Assault & Battery/The Golden Void that I can listen to without getting bored. The drums are better on this piece than on any other track from this album.

I don't understand what people see in this band, really. This is not a good album, it is rather bland overall, though it has some good moments. Yet it is much better than any of the previous Hawkwind albums, for sure.
