3 stars Hawkwind is a band I have ignored for a long time. But a link to a promo copy of this album arrived in my inbox and I therefore feel obliged to review this album.

Space rock is not my thing and my only experience with Hawkwind is the excellent Silver Machine track from around 1975. I am therefore pleased to add this band to my "must investigate further" list on the basis of this, their brand new album. The music on Blood Of The Earth is a mix of space rock, garage rock and the Brit rock bands like Radiohead do. This album have some good songs interluded with spaced out bits. That means Hawkwind stays true to what I believe is their identity throughout. The sound is good and the musicians does their job. This is not my kind of music. But I have to admit that, despite it's flaws, this album is a rather good album which may appeal to a lot of people. Not only the Hawkwind fans. A good three stars album, it is.

3 stars
