This album sure is a winner. "Seasons" and "The Prophecy" are two of my favourite songs this year. It is classic Hawkwind with an edge of 2012ness.

It is weird that so little people know about this release. Oh well, I guess it just makes me like it even more...

`Onward' was a great album! Generally no duds on it, all great quality, despite the obligatory `remake' tracks that the band still persists with!

I did kind of feel that it came out fairly quickly after the previous `Blood Of The Earth' album, so maybe fans were just a little burned out?!

I think it's even better than Blood of the Earth, which is saying a lot. I feel like they're playing on the "cutting edge" rather than living in the past, something they've been guilty of before. I think Onward might be one of their best albums in 40 years of album making.

Holy, was just listening to it at work right now, and kept on thinking `Man, this is such a good album'!

Yeah, I agree, they sound very modern and fresh, rejuvinated, even with the usual plodding riffs and swirling effects thrown in for good measure! I even picked up a slight Porcupine Tree influence throughout some moments on it. I especially like the instrumental track `Southern Cross', lovely track!

The instrumental piece `The Drive By' is absolutely stunning! Very melodic (surprisingly for Hawkwind!) drifting guitar solos with catchy beats and electronic elements - To be honest, the Ozric Tentacles haven't made a track this good in years, as much as I still like them.
