2 stars No wonder that with such a title, this album is actually a Brock solo album. I don't know how he managed to be able to record this under the "Hawkwind" umbrella, but since he is the heart & soul of the band for some than thirty years (at the time of recording), I guess that there is little to argue about this.

The man is almost on his own for this release. And even if the mood brought me back in time, I have to say that most of these songs are not really good. Déjà vu. Lots of time.

It sounds as if dear old Dave is willing to reproduce an early "Hawkwind" album. Was there any need for this? I guess not.

Most of songs are extremely short (two minutes and under), and this is affecting my perception of this work. There are hardly one song that could raise my interest and honestly, I wonder what was the use to record this "Spacebrock".

Here and there some fine spacey tune ("Kauai" which last no longer than 95 seconds) but that's it for this album. I can't frankly rate this work with more than two stars. You shouldn't bother with this one. Just grab anything fromp their early repertoire up to "Quark". And why not the excellent "Palace Springs".

Two stars for this one.
