Review by Warthur
4 stars The latest Hawkwind studio album (at the time of writing) finds them leaning even further into soundscapes and away from conventional songs than the preceding Somnia. With the lineup expanded since then, with the prolific Thighpaulsandra providing an extra level of electronic texture, things seem somewhat richer than the preceding album, but the same general musical approach is underway, more in line with It Is the Business of the Future To Be Dangerous than, say, Warrior On the Edge of Time or Quark, Strangeness and Charm. If you like Hawkwind when they delve into abstract electronic realms and don't worry too much about offering something which resembles a song, you'll likely enjoy this.

3 stars With an album title like The Future Never Waits, these guys surely needed to show more than that spacey stew they usually cook and serve, at least, if they really wanted to impress some serious fans of dystopia. And they do show more, indeed, in the eponymous opener, where the prevailing mood is abs ... (read more)
