This album is definetely one of my ultimate favorite of any band. As soon as I heard the start of Earth Calling for the first time I knew I was in for an interesting and amazing trip. This knowledge was in no way diminished when the second track, Born To Go, kicked in. Robert Calverts poetry is consistently excellent and thought provoking throughout and adds to the spaced-out feel of the whole thing. Its hard to say which tracks are the best as they are all amazing, but I think 7 by 7, Master of the Universe and Lord of Light are some of the best. I first got into Hawkwind through watching a short clip of Golden Void live and despite someone telling me he had been to some of their shows and thought they werent that good live I think what I have heard of their live stuff really blew me away(except a few of the tracks off Bring Me The Head of Yuri Gagarin). If you're a fan of Hawkwind, I would really recommend you get this, and if you arent already this is a brilliant introduction to their music.
