3 stars Did they need to conjugate Mangu

A good live summary of the band's work around the time of the "Chronicle of the Black Sword".

The version of "Needlegun" here is probably the best of the bunch, a typical burst of all-guns-blazing Hawkwind. The frantic pace and infectious chorus make this a crowd favourite, despite the fact that for Hawkwind it is remarkably pop orientated.

"Dust of time" from "Levitation" also sounds good and, like the version of the ubiquitous "Master of the Universe", ups the pace from the original version. There are some duff tracks, "Conjugation of Magnu" for example is a waste of space in music terms, and "Lords of chaos" is even worse. Thankfully, such tracks are kept brief, and there is plenty here to enjoy.

With so many live Hawkwind albums to choose from, this one is worth considering.

2 stars MADE IN HAWKWIND

I am not really enthusiast about this « Hawkwind » live album.

This is an average hard-rock live album combined, here and there, with some prog moments. « Shade Gate » is the first one of those an it is already the sixth track. Another MAJOR preoccupation are the weak vocal parts. Monochord, expressionless, dull.

Some (very) short spacey tune ("The Pulsing Cavern") immerged in a ocean of hard to heavy music. An anthem as "Master Of The Universe" is of course a highlight and confirms (if needed) the strong rocking ability of the band.

At times, the frenzy decreases a bit and opens the way to some pleasant rock song. No less, no more than "Dreaming City". But overall, this album is rather superfluous. Too much of the same sound kills the music.

If ever you are thrilled by the idea of listening to almost eighty minutes of the same beat, this live set might be for you. But not for me. Two stars.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
4 stars All Hail, Mighty Hawklords of Chaos, this is a wonderful surprise!

Where do they hide these master tapes? A reissue of the 1986 live album with extra concert tracks and some bonus material, plus a 20 page booklet. This is irresistible for any Hawkwind Addict. The highly revered 'Chronicle of the Black Sword' material is featured plus other treasures such as 'Magnu' and a new version of 'Masters of the Universe'. Its all here, 'Sea King', 'Angels of Death', the space swooshes of 'Rocky Paths', The Sigue Sigue Sputnik feel of 'Fight Sequence', manic laughter in 'Wizards of Pan Tang', the hard driving 'Needle Gun' and the space poetry of Moorcock.

The incredible narrative of Elric the Enchanter is captured live to a captive audience, harking back to the wonderful, weird lunacy of 'Space Ritual'. The bizarre concept concerns a wild array of characters such as Elric, Zarozinia, wizards with black swords, dragons, soul drinkers, Arioch, Lord of the 7 Darks; it's all Hawkwind. "Rise to defend the Dragon Throne," echoes the poet of 'Dragon's Song', and then the new song is unleashed, 'Dreaming City'. It is a competent enough track, chugging along nicely. The concert hangs together well, with melodic clarity, Brock's echoing vocal style and those excellent guitar riffs.

The 20 page booklet features some lyrics with psychedelic illustrations, plus 10 pictures of the band including a fold out pic of the group in those days. 30 tracks, 2 CDs, this is a must have for all serious heavy proggers.

A sonic attack on the senses, astounding sounds, amazing music; Hawkwind fanatics rejoice! 4 stars

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover Team
3 stars Hawkwind live is what makes this band so special, having banged out a career where studio recordings are frequently uneven but live documents habitually stellar , or in this case, interstellar! Seeing this legendary group in concert is a moving, hypnotic and disturbing affair, leaving the jet-lagged fan in a cosmic daze for days and days. Not the most complex or varied of styles, the Hawkwind experience is loud, hard and visual , often relentless, brooding and monolithic, interspersed with ambient synthscapes, sci-fi narration and galactic rifferama , all propelled by a binary and hammering rhythm section that has only submission on its astral agenda. Lead guitarist Huw Lloyd-Langton weaves loopy electric solos throughout (but particularly on "Moonglum"), leaving Hawkman Dave Brock to man both the keyboard arsenal as well as the rhythm guitar chores, while Harvey Bainbridge synths his way through the stars. Bassist Alan Davey rumbles on his Rickenbacker and drummer Danny Thompson bashes energetically. There are some necessary Hawk standards such as the punkoid "the Sea King", the coarse "Angels of Death", the monstrous "Magnu" and the classic "Masters of the Universe", as well as a few lesser know space debris that tantalize and elicit orbiting applause. Ambient sonic floaters like "Shade Gate", "Dreaming City", "the Pulsing Cavern" and the amazing "Zarozinia" provide tempo changes that contrast well with the harder edged material like the ransacking "Rocky Paths", the playful "Needle Gun" and the breezy "Wizards of Pan Tang". "Dust of Time" is a hugely convincing piece, loaded with all the bravura and simplicity of carnal space-rock. Some tracks are a tad overblown like the vocally poor "Choose Your Masques" and companion piece "Fight Sequence" as well as the cumbersome "the Dark Lords", full of sardonic laughter and schizoid insanity. The closer "Horn of Fate " is a slight letdown, a bit too obvious and lacking the necessary showstopping attributes one would expect from the Hawkers. While no where near the majestic "Space Ritual" (a hard to beat masterpiece), the wispy "Business Trip" or even "Palace Springs", this remains an enjoyable voyage. Certainly worthy of any Space/Psychedelia collection but its not getting 5 asteroids from this sonic cosmonaut!

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Hawkwind's Live Chronicles is a good but not exceptional live album, notable for providing a warmer rendition of songs drawn mainly from the "space metal" era of Hawkwind from Sonic Attack through to Chronicle of the Black Sword. Though the album can't hold a candle up to the classic space rock albums of Hawkwind's most creatively successful period, it goes a long way towards rehabilitating the band's sound from the rut it had got into. If you're intent on getting it, go for the Atomhenge reissue which gives the complete concert, including Michael Moorcock's narration from between the songs, but for my part I'd rather stick in Space Ritual yet again.

5 stars I have to admit a bit of bias here, this was my first Hawkwind album and the one that introduced me to their huge body of work. I'm also partial to the Elric saga which is the basis of the many of the songs included. This is in my opinion the finest Hawkwind lineup and especially the presence of ... (read more)

4 stars When this album was released on vinyl the concert had been condensed down to fit on two LPs. This was also partly due to the fact that Michael Moorcock had retracted his permission to include his poems. If you're going to buy this album (which I highly recommend) I suggest you seek out the Americ ... (read more)
