4 stars Doh a deer, a female deer!

This was Hawkwind's third album, and the follow up to the excellent "In search of space".

"Doremi.." (in case anyone has not spotted it, the title is taken from the Do Re Mi scales) is slightly more mainstream rock, with the jazz influences apparent on the previous album, largely pushed to the background. Those influences are however still around, as evidenced by the CD bonus track "Ejection".

The opening track, "Brainstorm" is 11 minutes of heads down driving rock with an incessant pounding beat. "Space is deep", is lighter with a melodic, acoustic feel. "Lord of light" restores the driving pace, the bonus single edit benefiting from phasing effects.

"Down through the night" reverts to the acoustic Hawkwind, while "Time we left this world today" is a somewhat over long chant. The closing track, "The watcher" is a light throwaway track.

The bonus tracks on the CD remaster are excellent, "Brainbox pollution" is a great piece of pounding jazz rock.

"Doremi.." shows the band moving on well, and developing their own sound which would serve them well in the years to come. Pick up the digi-pack version of the CD if you can, the packaging is superb.
