Prog Reviewer
4 stars In some respects, Hawkwind upstaged Distant Horizons a little by including multiple cuts from it on the preceding live album, Love In Space, which was so good that the studio release would naturally struggle to keep up with it. Indeed, the album precedes a bit of a slump in Hawkwind's output, with releases like In Your Area or Take Me To Your Future cobbled together from live and studio scraps, and Distant Horizons itself feels like it's a mashup of off-cuts from Alien 4 with somewhat punkish, faster songs sprinkled in to pad things out. It remains an entertaining slice of space rock - resembling Hawkwind by way of the Ozrics at points - but it is not an essential release.
Warthur | 4/5 |
