Prog Reviewer
4 stars With Ginger Baker joining on drums and Tim Blake bringing his exceptional synthesiser skills to play, Levitation is a great comeback album for Hawkwind, who had ended up in a bit of a creative rut in the preceding years. Bringing back the heavy guitar and bass-driven songs of the classic Hawkwind sound to an extent not heard since Warrior on the Edge of Time, the album is an excellent reminder of what made Hawkwind great. With a much greater focus on instrumentals as opposed to the sparse vocals, the lyrical focus of the Robert Calvert-fronted albums of the past four years give way to a re-establishment of the band's original musical vision. Worth it for all Hawkwind fans, particularly those turned off by the band's direction on albums such as Quark, Strangeness and Charm or PXR5.
Warthur | 4/5 |
