From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Hawkwinds' live albums I have found are always of varying degrees of recording quality, this is one of the better ones. Some would question Hawinds inclusion in a Prog rock reveiw site, I think the material on this disc more than proves that they can appeal to a 'Progressive' audience, even if paradoxically some of these songs (Psy Power) are not unlike punk! Hard, driving, sometimes heavy for its era, rock music with Hawkwinds signature swooshing and bleeping keyboards and synths present albeit taking a back seat here. Not vertically complex, sometimes only a couple of chords or motifs repeated hypnotically but horizontally complex in the way the music morphs and changes over periods of time, especially the amazing Levitation. A dynamic album.
