4 stars Perhaps the peak of Hawkwind's synth-dominated, New Age-influenced era, It Is the Business of the Future To Be Dangerous gives a largely-instrumental journey through various spacey New Age territories, culminating in a rockier number in the form of a cover of the Stones' classic Gimme Shelter. Operating as a trio, the Hawks adapt to this constraint neatly, and achieve a superior sound in the studio compared to previous efforts along similar lines like Church of Hawkwind and Space Bandits. It will take a while to grow on you if you're more fond of their rock-oriented earlier eras - I know that was the case for me - but if you dig this weirdly earnest fantasy-political space new age business it's quite good.
