5 stars My first Hawkwind album and one of the first intentionally listened Space Prog albums. What a great luck that it's also pleasant, melodic, challenging and offers everything that one can achieve in this genre.

The only songs I don't like that much are ironically those that tells the story, The Wizard Blew His Horn and Warriors, even that pleasing fact is that they're "told" by lyrics mastermind, sci-fi writer Michael (here signed as Mike) Moorcock. I like sci-fi, good or bad, both can attract me (because of different reasons, I believe that there also is high sci-fi, same as high, Tolkien-like fantasy). I just don't like "voice effects" on these tracks, that's all.

And even these tracks seems appropriate and rightly "space" like. Songs here are perfect. When I catch glimpse of story here and there, I'm finely satisfied with what I hear, even I admit that the main force is still music (even lyrics play main part here).

It's charming and magical. It's in many aspect album that goes as far as Space heaven can be. This is why this album is so high rated and liked by people. I won't be in opposition this time, because I feel that this album is very special. Masterpiece.

5(+), lost in space.
