5.0 out of 5 stars Hawkwind - self-titled (EMI) January 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Only reason I'm giving this CD reissue a five star-rating instead of a four-star one, is BECAUSE of the superbly done remastered pressing of this title, Hawkwind's debut 1970 lp. Every cut here is totally awesome sounding! From the trippy opener "Hurry On Sundown" to the rocker "Be Yourself", "Mirror Of Illusion", the pre-Hawkwind blues cover "Bring It On Home" and their Pink Floyd cover of "Cymbaline". Now THAT'S class! You get the lp's seven original tracks remastered, plus four (4 )bonus cuts. Do keep in mind this record was produced by Pretty Things guitarist Dick Taylor, plus it's got some charter HW members that are rarely heard from anymore, like Dik Mik on electronics and Terry Ollis on drums. I've always thought as Hawkwind as being 'sort of' Floyd's rival. Listen for yourself and YOU tell me. First rate psychedelia, space rock or head music. Pick up a copy and you decide. Most highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Enough Debut, But Better Would Come March 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
(Techincally, three and a half stars, but they don't allow you to offer halvesies here. No matter.)

If you can imagine the early Pink Floyd ("The Piper at the Gates of Dawn," "A Saucerful of Secrets," "More") as what would eventually become "speed metal" in extraterrestrial wrapping and a peculiar theme of Michael Moorcock (a future contributor, as it happened) meets the Marvel Super Heroes on more than a few controlled substances, that was Hawkwind.

At least, that was Hawkwind as they'd become known beginning an album or two later. This debut set, long enough overdue for a remastering, displays much of what would soon identify the band, particularly its shifting between ethereal acoustic music and transdimensional electronic hard rock, but here it retains the very loose and very random feeling you might expect they'd have shown in their previous days as park buskers known for such performances as setting up and playing free outside the Isle of Wight festival and like appearances. Their future lyric hybrid is yet to be developed fully; here is a band which has found its sound but is trying to decide exactly what it is they really have to say.

Still, it's a charming sounding album with much good music, particularly their three earliest near-signature numbers, the cheerful post-hippie acoustic tapper "Hurry On Sundown," the stark surreal sonic wash of "Paranoia," and the spry jam, "Be Yourself," highlighted by reedman Nik Turner's half-Ayler, half-King Curtis saxophone squonk and guitarist Dave Brock's piercingly melodious break, both over a taut rhythm section and keyboardsman Dik Mik Davies's tastefully understated electronica. (True: erstwhile Pretty Things founder Dick Taylor not only helped produce the set but played some support guitar and bass on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent December 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is Hawkwind's 1970 debut. This album is truely great and truely spooky.

What it is is very spacey, early-Floyd tinged rock, full of dark nuances, and sound effects.

What it is NOT is the Hawkwind that developed right after this album. The songs here actually seem more composed, recorded carefully as songs and soundscapes. They don't have that driving, monolithic bass pump that Hawk would make their trademark starting on Doremi Fasol Latido.

But this is still terrific freekaziod space rock made by a band who defined the non-commerical end of the genre.

This is not the Hawkwind you know, but it is great Hawkwind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pink Floyd X 10 January 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Do not do LSD or any mind altering drugs while listening to this CD. Your brain will melt and turn to jelly, but you'll be so much wiser after you listen...Saw them Live at The Academy of Music in NYC in the 70's. Unfortunately that is another music palace that was torn down...bastards!

5.0 out of 5 stars Near Perfect Space Folk Psych Jams December 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
According to Wikipedia, the bulk of the album originated from a long free form jam called 'sunshine special' which was broken down into individual tracks with spacey synthesized interludes. And this certainly makes sense as the music shares the same vibe throughout the record. But don't let the 'free form jam' tag put you off. The music is not a chaotic drug fueled mess a la Amon Duul, not by a long shot. The music has a solid footing in the psych genre, and the improving fits within that structured sound. It sounds as if the band were playing live in the studio and were locked into a fantastic groove. The addition of flute, sax, and harmonic to the mix is greatly appreciated by this listener. It is one of the best examples of psych space rock around and I enthusiastically recommend it.

The album comes in two flavors. There is the 1992 One Way Records mastering, and the 1996 EMI classics remaster. Most of the ones you'll find for sale come from the 1996 master, and that's a good thing. The '92 version has a fair amount more compression than the '96 version (replay gain of -6 vs -2). The '92 version is substantially brighter and more harsh than the EMI mastering. IMO, the '96 remaster is of audiophile quality, so there is no need to seek out the old version. Also the newer ones come with 4 bonus tracks, although the only bonus track I really liked was the cover of a Pink Floyd song called Cymbaline.

4.0 out of 5 stars the start of something great September 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Hawkwind's first album is interesting in that it contains both the bands best AND worst songs.

Now, I try to be positive every chance I can get, especially when it comes to music, because I've been listening to music for many years and my hope is that I've learned to appreciate that many bands take a LOT of time to properly figure out.

So that's why I give Hawkwind's debut album 4 stars, instead of 2 or 3, because a 4 is just more appropriate for a band that would soon become one of hard rocks very best.

Let's talk about the best songs first- "Hurry On Sundown", with some AWESOME harmonica playing and beautifully brilliant vocals... this is truly a spectacular song! "Be Yourself" has some wonderful saxophone jamming that leads into some equally impressive guitar soloing. I love this song a lot. And finally, the CCR-sounding "Mirror of Illusion", with a John Fogerty-like vocal melody that's both melodic and EXTREMELY good.

The bad songs would be the two "Paranoia" tracks. It's NOT a good idea to repeat the same 4 or 5 notes for several minutes. "Seeing It As You Really Are" kind of follows the same idea, with too much of it dominated with repeating notes. However in this case, the song eventually drifts into a really good guitar solo and a little bit of melodic saxophone playing at the end making it a pretty good jam.

I recommend buying the album for the three songs I mentioned above, but the band would become MUCH more consistent starting as soon as the next album.
