3 stars Despite of reviewing their new album, released last year, I am really new to this band. I off course know about Lemmy's association to Hawkwind. He plays bass here. I am also a fan of their Silver Machine song. But their 1970s albums was new to me until I got hold of this album and a handful of other classic Hawkwind albums.

Space rock is their label and it is fair to say that Hawkwind is one of the biggest bands in the genre. Their illegal drugs intake at the time of the recording of this album is also legendary. Don't try this at home. I also believe Lemmy got the boot at this stage and he set up Motorhead just after this. A band I was a fan of two decades ago (Orgamastron is still a great album, btw).


Warrior on the Edge of Time offers up a dosage of space rock with dirty bass and guitar sound. The keyboards takes us to outer space and beyond (make that the local chemist and/or the local drug dealer). The music is good throughout. It is probably a lot better live than on a CD with Motorhead as a bonus track. A song vastly different than in Motorhead's own version.

There is a lot of good songs here and some spaced/drugged out warblings. But this album never takes of in the direction of nirvana in my estimation. A good album, but nothing more. You can take it that I am stone cold sober and not that much of a space traveller as required by this music.

3 stars
