3 stars First and maybe best album by Robert Calvert. His experience with Hawkwind is truly exposed in these psychedelic heavy / bluesy rock compositions punctuated by humourus narrative interludes. If you like the original sound of the band with Lemmy Kilmister and others this one is for you ("space ritual' era). It can also takes you back to the crazy psychedelic sounds of "spirit of the age" and first demos of the band back at the end of the 60's. For those who are not familiar with Hawkwind, it can be described as a cross between blues, heavy bass attacks and spacey rock of the Floyd. The narrative voices and sketches make this album a little bit different with nice "zappa" influences. The concept of the album is about Air force, war trainings and technology of battle between West Germany and the US. " My nerves are made of steel and my eyes are eagle sharp and what would freak the average man does not affect my heart"
