3 stars Now if your a hawkwind fan especially if you like the album chronicles of the black sword and albums after that [the ones with alan davey on bass and synths,keyboards etc] you will probably love this as i do,i do like actually most of alans music hes done anyway to this album,the first track Rock Palace (4:30)starts with a good bass riff and then the guitar comes in and drums also[this track is also on bedouins as above so below album],this is an enjoyable track the guitar is a good bit of playing with the bass just riffing away and in parts the synth really sounds great and i love it when the synth plays high a brilliant start.Wadi Dhar (11:19) is such a joy to hear with wave sequencer sound which alan to me is brilliant and so mellow and so relaxing and floating ive allways and allways will know that i will love this sound,this is slow like but its just such a nice feeling hearing this,and then after awhile drums come in and bass and guitar and synths to and they play a great track to with the synths being more of lead role and the track just sounds great i just love how the synth plays lead here[it,ll get stuck in ya head for awhile and thats a good thing to,and the bass drums guitar playing after a while as the synth stops and a nice bit of guitar then the synth starts again and thats the track basicly and the last minute is really mellow to brilliant track.Passion Is An Animal (5:25)been the first vocal track starts with bass drums guitar playing a good riff with alans vocals it really fits well together with his bass playing good here as with everything else to,no synths here really attall just rock music with a riff thats good sounding another great track great ending.Alhadan (5:48) starts very mellow as the last track goes into this[meaning the end of last track ends mellow and goes into this track] and this is just great with an instrument [stringed] sounding like something from india or eastern sounding and it just sounds great with the wave sequencer sound playing mellow in background and then an indian or eastern vocal comes in and this sounds great and thats the track basicly a nice track to.Space Rock Café (4:55)[ i like the name of this track] starts with drums and a riff and guitar playing and when the synth plays it really makes the track more and some nice bass playing here to alan plays well here and the synths playing is great to.One Moon Circles (5:05) starts with a sound like someone banging a gong [i think]lightly,and the track gets slightly louder as it gets going and with nice sounding drums[like african sound a bit] and the synths wavey sound playing just how i like sounding mellow and then its more the drums play for a bit,then the synth[wavey] sound plays again i just love this a great track.Queen Of The Nights (5:14) is the second vocal track and with a great track playing and drums and bass and guitar playing and after awhile when alans bass plays it just sounds great[ not that it sounded bad ] and is an addictive sound with guitar playing great then it gets quieter with a nice sound for few seconds then the track plays again with vocals and goes till end.Eyes In The Dark (7:12) starts very fx and wavey sound and this just reminds me of stars shining this is just great to hear it gets mellower after a bit,and abit more in a drum n bas kind of sound comes in which sounds good not hard drums and bass though,with fx with alan playing bass in background which really goes well with the track and the synth fx sound sounding great to and themn the track ends.Sand Devil (2:37) a track from alans collection from 1987 and has a riff and isnt that a bad track not best on here though but its good when the synth comes in as it is addictive then the album ends,this is an album definatly worth having especially if you like hawkwind with alan davey its a definatly get,but to be fair i,ll give it 3 stars,i would 4 but i reckon most people would think 3,so 3 stars.
