Worth getting for the cover of "Gimme shelter" alone, which is just as well, as the rest of the album is patchy at best. This track though gives the song the full Hawkwind treatment and sound, with a driving beat and the monotone yet melodic vocals.

"Letting in the past" is more good solid Hawkwind driving rock, while "The camera that could lie" is surprisingly good for reggae pop(!). Those track aside though, there's little to make this album worthy of note.

Many of the remaining tracks are little more than ambient instrumental noodlings. Hawkwind are in cruise control here.
