4 stars I'm not sure if this is my favorite Hawkwind album but it is at the top somewhere! From the pulsing beginning of ASSAULT AND BATTERY, you know you are going on an enchanted space through the trippiness that is Hawkwind. Some narration in tracks like THE WIZARD BLEW HIS HORN and STANDING AT THE EDGE, leave me cold (I have never liked spoken words in my music much-do ya hear that Moody Blues???!!). Aside from the first 2 tracks, I believe the best bits are the instrumental SPIRAL GALAXY 28948 and DYING SEAS. The comparisons to early Pink Floyd are pretty obvious in much of this album, but I also pick up some Uriah Heep-like acoustic work(THE DEMENTED MAN), and of course the more hard rock punk of MOTORHEAD and KINGS OF SPEED. I have previously stated that this is one of the best Hawkwind works in my opinion, however, I am not a huge fan of the band so I will top this at 4 stars, the highest I think I would give any of their albums.
