4 stars Well ... actually ..... this one is rather good .... and I do confess I am surprised to discover that Hawkwind have put together a good one ..... because (lets be honest) they have put some awful crap out over the years. It isn't a masterpiece, but it is a decent performance from this veteran space rock band, and if it turns out to be their last studio album, it wouldn't be a bad way to finish a career that has past the 40year mark.

It has all the right hawkwind trademarks .... the chugging guitar riffs and the wibbly-wobbly synths. If you're a fan of the band - you'll be pleased with this one. production isn't too bad either - by hawkwind standards anyway.

1 negative for me - l 82 mins over 2 disks! - loose one bonus live track and it would fit on 1 disk .... that I find irritating. Don't try and sell something as a double when it really isn't

Let's call it 3.5 .... and generously round it up to 4 stars because I was prepared to be diapointed... but wasn't

Matt-T | 4/5 |
