Prog Reviewer
4 stars Hawkwind's years on RCA Active were characterised by wild shifts in their musical style. After exploring the space metal styles of Sonic Attack, Church of Hawkwind finds them slamming to the other extreme of their musical universe, dialling back the rock elements substantially and turning up the electronics dial to maximum. The end result is an intriguing musical trip that offers extensive early examples of the use of sampling and other synthesiser techniques in a rock context, and is perhaps the most progressively-minded of all of Hawkwind's studio albums on the RCA Active label. It might not be what we expect from Hawkwind, but the sheer fact of its unusualness in itself makes it stand out in their discography.
Warthur | 4/5 |
