4 stars A pretty decent live set giving a particular spin to the group's late 1970s-to-early 1980s material, plus a dip into "Silver Machine" with Arthur Brown guesting on vocals previewing closer collaboration between Brown and his fellow space rock pioneers in subsequent tours. With Simon House offering the connection to the late-1970s years and Huw Lloyd- Langton doing the same for the early 1980s, this time around Dave Brock's bridge crew benefit from familiarity with the material, but the overall sound is an interesting blend of those eras with the band and more modern efforts. The end result is a solid live album from a period when Hawkwind weren't doing so hot in the studio - it's certainly more interesting than the Hawkwind-in-name-only release Spacebrock.
