5 stars The other reviews giving great appreciation to this Hawkwind recording are accurate.

It is close or even better that what is considered classic Hawkind in the early 70's to early 80's.

That stated in rating any Hawkwind recording I always look for reviews that comment on the sound/production which is excellent and not bad bootleg quality.

In looking for any reviews on any prog rock recording I look for any indication of any boring instrumental noodling/jamming whose musicians neither have the professionalism of the Allman Brothers, Phish or other quality bands to do this and still make is interesting music , nor have the improvising talent of many Jazz musicians to do it well, or if they do, they have not shown so because they are either stoned, drunk or zonked out, and the producer likewise.

This is not the case, instrumental passages are well thought out and done beautiful.

Likewise in any prog reviews I look for indication of trying to gain mainstream radio airplay and subsequently sound like a boring pop band

This is not the case with this Hawkwind recording
