3 stars This review is about the DVD version, the tracking-list is almost similar to the 2-CD set only a track entitled "Alien" is added. From the very first moment Hawkwind impresses with propulsive space-rock, loaded with heavy guitar riffs and spectacualr synth sounds, this in combination with a stunning live-act (dancers, light-show, screen projections). Many songs are harder-edged, almost punk ("Death trap", "Blue skin", "Xenomorph") but other sound spacey/cosmic ("Photo encounter", "Vega", "Kapel" and "Elfin") or hypnotizing ("Are you losing your mind"). The final track "Assassins of Allah" features an Eastern climate with sitar sounds and great dancing. The highlights on this DVD are the titletrack (soaring organ, fiery electric guitar and a strong build-up, compelling atmosphere) and the mega-hit song "Silver machine" including a heavy guitar-intro and spectacular light images, the crowd is going wild! THIS IS AN EXCITING SCOUTING OF SPACE ROCK, PUNK AND ELECTRONICS!!
