3 stars a popular album on its release, though not as startling as "sonic attack", it is very similar in style to "levitation" (though not quite as good in my opinion), "choose your masques" contained clues to the ambient shape of things to come, demonstrated to a degree in the excellent "dream worker". the album also includes my favourite tracks on the album the "arrival in utopia/utopia" suite, ("if you wanna get into it...you gotta get out of it.." ) and on side two a reworking of "silver machine", strange they included this as it's not vastly different to the original, though rather overproduced. layers of soaring synths and deep bass on "void city" , though overall some parts of the production of this album seem rather thin. "solitary mind games", "farenheit 451" (contains a great guitar solo), "the ascan" (interesting short piece) and "waiting for tomorrow" are fairly average hawkwind tracks, and overall the album is a very good, though not outstanding, addition to any hawkwind /spacerock prog collection.

Review by Atkingani
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin
2 stars HAWKWIND are a band I really like and I'm always ready to condone them even if they don't meet the Hawk-standard I praise too much. This is the case of "Choose Your Masques", a release some points below their fine output of the 70s - this album barely touches the pattern we're used to hear from them.

One will hear many sounds and effects that carry the HAWKWIND label but it's only a trick to keep the space-psych atmosphere, but among a bunch of weary tracks, 'Fahrenheit 451' and 'Arrival in Utopia' hover easily over others 'cause they are great rocks, full of energy and color, even dansant. The addition of classics like 'Silver machine' and 'Psychedelic warlords' may be of interest mainly if you are a beginner within the band's stuff.

Not too much to add but anyway if you're a Hawk-fan be sure this album was aimed for you. Collectors might appreciate "Choose Your Masques" too.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars I fully agree with Atkingani's review. The band over-uses the spacey sounds in several tracks like the long opener and title song. This track is actually a dual one : half hard-rocking, half psychedelic/experimental.

Almost the same structure for "Arrival In Utopia" which is one of the best original songs here (they will repeat this again with ""Fahrenheit 451" a little later in the album, the structure, I mean) . The contrary of the dull "Utopia". Press nextT.

The annoying part of the game being that several numbers are of the same mould. Average to even poor : "Void City" as well as the insipid and uninspired "Solitary Mind Games". Gosh!

And god knows why they inserted both "Silver Machine" (even twice here!) from "In Search Of Space" which is one their oldest albums (I confess that this song was only available on the remastered CD version, not on the original album) and "Psychedelic Warlords" from "Hall Of The Mountain Grill " for a total of a mere seventeen minutes. Did they really need to release a one hour long album and didn't have the creative spirit for it?

To be honest, these three tracks are amongst the best of this album, which is consequently one of the weakest of the band so far. An average "Hawkwind" album which is not often the case I must say, since the band managed to be rather on the good edge so far.

Two stars.

Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars A continuation of the "space metal" approach of the preceding Sonic Attack - Church of Hawkwind being more of a Dave Brock side project than an official Hawkwind album - Choose Your Masques suffers from being a faint photocopy of the previous album. It even opens with another Moorcock-penned rant set to a danceable rhythm, except the title track is vastly less interesting than the apocalyptic title track from Space Ritual. The Silver Machine rehash is utterly, spectacularly needless and another example of the band's lamentable tendency at this point in its history to cannibalise its old material in order to fill out an album. None of the other songs are particularly worth commenting on. Only a couple of years after the all-too-brief comeback of Levitation, Hawkwind had already run down another creative dead-end.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
3 stars Hawkwind's 80s albums are certainly a different approach to the 70s but there are still some great moments on these releases as is the case with "Choose Your Masques". The album features some wonderful compositions with excellent lead guitar breaks such as 'Arrival in Utopia' and 'Utopia'. Dave Brock and Harvey Bainbridge on vocals are effective. Bainbridge's bass and keyboard work is well executed here. Huw Lloyd-Langton is a fine lead guitarist as is evident on tracks such as 'Solitary Mind Games'.

'Choose Your Masques' is another great song with a driving rhythm and hypnotic melody. This sounds more like the old Hawkwind when they locked into one riff and sung variations of a simple melody. At over 10 minutes in length it overstays its welcome but is still a decent start to the album with some trademark spacey effects by Dik Mik and tons of lead guitar. It was also a treat to hear Ian Holm's narration, sounding like his "Alien" character Ash. This segues into 'Dream Worker' that has some nice weirdness to open it, a swathe of synth layers and dreamy ambience. It does not go anywhere but still somehow works as a transition into the Utopia tracks.

Unfortunately the band are prone to diverge into the new wave punk territory such as on 'Farenheit 451', and I am turned off by this approach. The band should stick to the spacey vocals of Brock. Nik Turner is the culprit again on this release and is a real nutter live and comes across as such on vocals, though there is no replacing his wild sax embellishments. It is nice to hear Brock's wife here too, Pascoe, singing occasionally. The album cover is not that good either looking like a dead Jawa.

There is as usual a lot of instrumental filler here such as 'The Scan' that is just a keyboard solo, and this leads to 'Waiting For Tomorrow' with a nice drone intro, spacey lead guitar and some interesting softer vocals. There is an over abundance of space effects as if the band are trying to revisit the good old days. 'Void City' is an interesting take on "The Outer Limits" TV show; "there is nothing wrong with your television set, we will control the horizontal, we will control the vertical". The track is basically another instrumental with repeated synth motifs and some space squirls and kanoodling. It goes for too long and is rather dull after a while, sounding like Sigue Sigue Sputnik's style.

To cap things off on revisiting old territory, there is a version of 'Silver Machine' that sounds really desperate to recapture that magical track. It does not work though with Brock's vocals sounding a bit forced. The lead guitar intro is unwelcome, and it has a different feel in the chorus. Admittedly it is one of the better tracks due to the fact that I always liked the melody but it still felt very unnecessary. On here there are two versions, a short and longer version. I recommend the longer version simply to hear the instrumental section. Overall the album is okay but once again Hawkwind are not the powerhouse of space rock that they once were. Grab this though as an example of the new Hawkwind sound, and it is better than a lot of their other 80s releases and for that matter better than most of the 90s output.

3 stars Classical thing for every hawk-cadet. Dave Brock & Co. continued their musical way from 1981's "Sonic Attack" album. Maybe it's too much infuented by new wave sound but "Choose Your Masques" is valuable postscriptum to greatest Hawkwind productions. "CYM" as many classic Hawkind album incl ... (read more)
