3 stars This Finnish band is technically quite interesting, as the guys create a purist vintage space rock sound, and voyage in aesthetically pleasant cosmic musical realms. But what troubles me with this record is the too evident effort of replicating Hawkwind's sound. I have seen the band on concert stage few times, and once half of the material was their own, and half of them Hawkwind covers. So in my opinion with their good skills and carefully considered style they reach more interesting levels when innovating more personal elements to open jams. On this record, the output staying in lesser personal paths, most of the compositions being pastiches of their own innovator's songs. Though this works well on visual-illuminated dance halls, I would prefer their later released underground jams for listening at home. Surely some pleasant space rock also on this one, if the listener won't mind the similarities of their innovator band, but I would recommend searching the later rehearsal improvisation discs for the ultimate spacey experiences.
