Very much a Hawkwind album, despite the subtle adaptation of the band name (for if I recall correctly, the usual "contractual reasons").

The opener, "Psi power" is almost pop, with good synthesiser and Hawkwind's trademark driving beat. "Freefall" is more ambient, while "25 years" revives the pounding beat, this time combined with chanted vocals.

"Flying Doctor" has a Bowie feel to it, while "The only ones", with its harmonic pop tones is probably the best track. "The age of the micro man" is as close to Hawkwind get to a ballad, complete with echoed vocal.

A pleasant outing for Hawkwind, who give the impression they are seeking another successful single, but far from essential.
