2 stars From 1980, this Hawkwind release has never appealed to me. I know many fans enjoy it, but, to me, it seems flat and listless. Lots of chugging rhythms and songs that sound alike. The title song is ok as are moments of a few other song, but overall, I can't remember what I heard minutes afterwards. Nothing memorable. It is in no way as bad as some of their later 1980's efforts, but it is not excellent either. Ginger Baker on drums, but I feel it could have been anyone. Also, each Hawkwind album has at least 1 outstanding tune. Here, all blend together into mediocrity. 1980 was not a good year for many Prog bands. I guess Hawkwind had the same issue. 2 stars really about 2 1/2. Sorry I can't agree with many others.
