3 stars This is the best Hawkwind album since 1980! Why? Well, to say the least, Dave Brock's voice has not aged well, and this album is primarily instumental. Hawkwind made no bones about absorbing rave/techno/sampling influences into their music, and hey, it works pretty well. It's not rave or techno, but a return to a real psychedelic, almost ambient sound. The production is excellent and modern, unlike Electric Teepee, which sounded like crap. The few missteps are all near the end...the cover of "Gimme Shelter" is terrible, and a pseudo-reggae track is best forgotten. But when they stick to making soundscapes like the title track, the album soars and really works as ambient mood music. Not bad for a chap in his fifties. If you are curious about late Hawkwind but leery of the quality of these albums, try this one.
