"Quark, Strangeness and charm" is not Hawkwind's finest hour by any means.

Only the manic "Damnation Alley" is really worthy of note, and there are plenty of alternative Hawkwind albums which include it (Such as the excellent "Palace Springs") rendering this album superfluous.

The other tracks range from the Hawkwind by numbers songs such as "Iron dream" and "Spirit of the age" to the poor, punk inspired "Days of the underground".

There are many better offerings from the band than this.
