Expectations too high

Hawkwind Are probably my favourite band Of all time. Throughout
The 70s and Early 80s they evolved changing and producing original music. High-quality members of the band left and returned to the band. They leavened Dave Brock's core influence on the band. Hawkwind then seemed to go though a stale period., before setting out on a new direction. I was not a fan of much of this stuff. I read the reviews of onward and hoped hawkwind had returned to old form. I was disappointed I did not find the newer directions worked for me and the echoes of the old band were predictable. The re hash of old numbers, were good, but inferior to the originals and would have been best left out. I shall still listen to the tracks on shuffle, unlike my earlier treasured albums that even 30 years on still enthral me from start to finnish. I wanted too much: originality and the excitement I felt at the earlier albums. May be to expect this after 40 years is a step too far.


This is a great album, there is something here for all Hawkwinds fans, upbeat rock tracks, melodic slower tracks, and some great re-works of older tracks. For all space rock fans, this is a fine work showing the full diversity of the band's talent. After over 40 years in the music world Dave Brock and the boys have still got it.

Tracks 1 and 2 get the album off to a rocking good start, then a truly eclectic mix of great songs follow.

I fully recommend everyone,including long standing fans, younger fans and even those who haven't yet discovered Hawkwind to try this album!

Best Hawkwind studio album for 20 years

Their best since 1992's Electric Teepee - might even match or be better than that. No dud tracks, a great journey through driving space rock and ambient mood pieces, via pastoral folk rock and even the odd dubstep bass wobble. A triumph!

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Any sci-fi fan with a long memory probably remembers those 1970s' DAW paperback editions of Michael Moorcock's sword-and-sorcery novels, with their images of heavily armored, very muscular warriors carrying large swords and standing against eerie landscapes and starscapes. Take that imagery, throw in some names and terminology seemingly lifted from the Marvel Comics of the era (and particle physics articles of the period), and translate it into loud but articulate hard rock music. That's more or...
