Review by Joolz
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Hawkwind's latest was eagerly anticipated after a long and turbulent few years since the band's previous studio release. Most latter-day Hawkwind studio albums have been patchy affairs and now the euphoria has died down, Take Me To Your Leader proves to be much the same. The band that invented spacerock has long left full-on blanga behind, at least in the studio, in favour of a cold and rather sterile techno-rock hybrid that sometimes has psychedelic tendencies but only ventures into space on synth-based ambient pieces.

Too much of this album passes in an impenetrable cocoon of blandness - the vague and meandering 'Out Here We Are', an average heavy riffer in 'Greenback Massacre', jazzed-up techno of 'Take Me To Your Leader', the repetitious 'Digital Nation' and its annoying drum pattern, the short interlude of 'Sighs', and Arthur Brown's uninteresting techno-backed 'A Letter To Robert' monologue which doesn't bear more than a single hearing. None raise a flicker of emotion in the listener, and none displays much in the way of inspiration. Fortunately, the remaining tracks provided adequate compensation ....

.... opener, the old classic 'Spirit Of The Age' is rather splendid, generally an improvement on the original though not deviating much from the 1977 arrangement; Brock's 'To Love A Machine' enters Symphonic Prog territory and features some unexpected, but very welcome, acoustic guitar as well as tasty electric riffs; Arthur Brown's bouncy 'Sunray' is a brilliant Roxy Music thrash awash with crunchy guitars; and an infectious 'Angela Android', with an aptly loopy Lene Lovich adding vocals in her inimitable style to a pounding beat.

These four tracks are undoubtedly bright stars in the Hawkwind post-spacerock firmament. Had the remainder been even close then this might have been a stunning album based around a theme of a mechanized future world. The reality is that, once again, a Hawkwind album fails to satisfy in its entirety. If you strip away the contributions of guest performers, you are left with a pretty average bunch of songs that don't stand the test of time. Overall - good, but they have done a lot better.

2 stars After years of silence on the studio album front, does Take Me To Your Leader break the curse Hawkwind had seemingly been under since Levitation (or, if you want to be particularly hardline, Warrior On the Edge of Time) where they simply couldn't manage to make a studio album worthy of their illustrious name? Unfortunately not, as most listeners will realise when they note that the first song is merely a re-recording of an old Calvert era track which was perfectly good in its original incarnation. And the new compositions are just outright tedious. I really should give up and turn my attention to Hawkwind's live albums, really, because I hear they had at least a few more of interest.

4 stars Hawkwind's most recent album, 2005's "Take Me To Your Leader", is a very worthy example of the band's brand of space-rock and a fine addition to the Hawkwind collection. The band opens with the perennial Hawkwind classic, "Spirit of the Age" and I must admit that this is a slight irritation ... (read more)

2 stars Hmmm. I love Hawkwind and have maybe 20 albums. This starts so well - a good new version of their classic Spirit of the Age followed by a superb ambient/jazzy/ambient sequence penned by Alan Davey. After that though it goes rapidly downhill. I really don't like the final Letter to Robert thing a ... (read more)

2 stars Perhaps a more apt title for this long awaited ( at the time ) Hawkwind album would be " Hawkwind & Friends Go to a Rave". A disappointing Hawkwind effort despite a guest list of artists which include Lene Lovich and Arthur Brown. It sort of reminds me of the mediocre Alien 4 album from 1995 whos ... (read more)

1 stars Well I finally received the CD and what a disappointment it turned out to be. Spirit of the age yet again,dull and boring, surely the Hawkwind members could have written a new song to put on this new CD. Tracks 2 and 3 are okay, I suppose.

2 stars Having been a loyal Hawkfan for 30 years now, it pains me to hear such a patchy effort after an 8 year wait. This basically sounds like a collection solo tracks cobbled together to pose as a band effort. The remake (again) of "Spirit of the Age" is utterly pointless and some of the best lyrics ...

2 stars Rock? I think not. A Real Shock to the system that a band synonymous with progressive rock should turn out something which sounds like the unholy offspring of techno meets acid house meets pretensious 80s arty band.

3 stars It's been quite a wait for the new Hawkwind album, and I've been very curious to hear what they've come up with. But unfortunately I've got to say it's a bit of a patchy effort.
