3 stars Uplifting, then a bit of a let down

"Levitation" starts off great, with two pounding Hawkwind classics in a row. "Motorway City" in particular literally drives along in tremendous style. The track is a lengthy, highly melodic number, with some superb instrumental work.

Thereafter, the album becomes more mundane. Some good tracks still, such as the instrumentals "World of Tiers" and "Space chase". "Who's gonna win the war" slows things down rather more than necessary, with its repetitive chant. By the time it's over, you don't really care who's going to win!

"Dust of time" rounds things off nicely with a good piece of mid-paced pop rock, featuring some excellent guitar. "Motorway City" is by far the best of the bunch though.

Another solid album by the band, nothing more (or for that matter, less).
