5 stars I owned this album on vinyl almost thirty years ago and every driving guitar riff, layer of percussion and swooping snyth violin and sax that mesmerised me then are still burnt deep in my memory, so to listen to the cd now twenty years later is nostalgic heaven. It still delivers. This is the best example of the way Hawkwind gradually build layer upon hypnotic layer, with repetitive riffs and driving percussion, then add mesmerising trance melodies over it all - way ahead of their timea precursor of the trance/dance music decades later. Golden Void is undoubtedly Hawkwinds most sublime recording moment - its worth purchasing the cd for this alone. The Morcock poetic interludes are clumsy and indulgent, sometimes painful, though in places iconic. Although sounding slightly mad now, fanatasies of burning the weeds of the slain enemey to ash and blowing that ash away as if it had never existed - meant more in an age of free festivals crammed by hardcore stoners who still believed they could overwhelm the forces of police, military and a reactionary state!
