Editorial Reviews

Limited two CD edition including a bonus CD containing extra tracks. 2012 studio album from the Space Rock legends. Recorded at Earth Studios, the eagerly awaited follow-up to Blood Of The Earth encapsulates the band in full creative flight with a lavish collection of new music featuring sound tracks for internet warfare, mantras for self realization and electrical systems checks. The album seeks to unravel ancient mysteries brought to life with stories of distant past. The rock sure stable line-up starring Dave Brock on vocals, guitar and synthesizer, Richard Chadwick drums and vocals, Tim Blake on keyboards and Theremin, Mr. Dibs on vocals and bass and Niall Hone on bass, synthesis, sequencing and guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hawkwind's Onward - a Nice Journey May 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
2 CD Bookcase Ed. 42 Years after their self-titled debut, how is Hawkwind doing? Very well I think.
Seems that the track listing comes and goes from Amazon, so here it is:
CD1
1 Seasons
2 The Hills Have Ears
3 Mind Cut
4 System Check
5 Death Trap
6 Southern Cross
7 The Prophecy
8 Electric Tears
9 The Drive By
CD2
10 Computer Cowards
11 Howling Moon
12 Right to Decide (Bonus)
13 Aerospace Age (Bonus)
14 The Flowering of the Rose (Bonus)
15 Trans Air Trucking
16 Deep Vents
17 Green Finned Demon

CD1 seems to be the core work here and it is an excellent, cohesive space rock journey - basic riffing, with a nice heavy bass line and complementary synthesizers along with electronics laced throughout that blend into quieter interludes. It is a good end-to-end listening experience and it alone would make for a very nice selection live. I find it more engaging than their preceding and respectable release Blood of the Earth, which in turn, I liked better than its predecessor Take Me To Your Leader. I would not say that there is any superior material that has the attraction of some of their earlier gems like most of Doremi Fasol Latido (the core content of the great live Space Ritual) and Hall of the Mountain Grill, but as good a space trip as any since then and it is proving good for repeat listens. I was a bit nervous when I saw a re-work in the core listing (Death Trap) a practice reminiscent of the creatively strained period of the early 80s and some of the 90s, but the new material is solid and all of the material fits well. Death Trap itself was done with an alternating left-right channel source; it worked.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are even a slight fan of Hawkwind, you will want this. I personally find it better than the last 2 studio releases. The redo of Green Finned Demon is the best version ever. There is nothing not to like here. My favorites though are the ones with lots of Dave Brock's guitar and vocals, but the entire band is in top form. And the packaging is some of the most unique I have ever seen and it rates up high like the packaging for the original Space Ritual on vinyl. Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to form from the Gods of Space Rock June 2, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is a great new collection of tracks from Hawkwind that runs just slightly longer than the 80 minute capacity of a single disc...so the material is spread over two discs. There are some really great new songs, and there are updates of 4 Hawkwind oldies too, of which two are live versions featuring recently deceased ace keyboard wiz Jason Stuart, and serve as anice tribute to him. Former lead guitarist Huw Lloyd Langton makes an appearance on the second track, and his distinctive style is a welcome addition to the track. Dave Brock plays like a fiend all over the album, and has a chance to really shine on some long extended spacey guitar driven instrumentals. Tim Blake's keyboards and sonics are all over the CD, adding the synth like textures that are an essential component of the Hawkwind sound. Mr.Dibs on bass, and Richard Chadwick on drums both contribute fine vocals as well as making for a fine rhythm macine. And Hawkwind founder Dave Brock sings lead on several new tracks, which are all really very nice. At this point its wonderful to have Hawkwind still making new albums in 2012, let alone one with this level of quality. A couple of these are future classics. You'll hear what I mean from the very first track. It could have easily led off a set at the Roundhouse in London in 1972 and been right at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best is yet to come! May 18, 2012
By znodog
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes you have to think that the best is yet to come. This their 25th Studio Album and not a boring moment on it. Pure entertainment from start to finish with constant surprises popping up. It rocks hard but you get so many beautiful melodic contrasts with the acoustic guitars, vocals & synths. The remakes of Death Trap and Green Finned Demon are great in the grand tradition of Hawkwind re-do's..if your a fan of Hawkwind what are you waiting for download this now and rejoice. If your not familiar with the band, start here and go backwards through their studio releases till you get to Hawkwind 1969.

2.0 out of 5 stars A solid EP, but a weak double album November 5, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Like 'Blood of the Earth', this presents an EP worth of decent new material (it would be a 4-star EP) padded out with extraneous remakes, instrumentals, and Dave Brock solo tracks. The recent full-length releases by the Hawklords and Nik Turner are both much more solid full-band albums of new material than this is. Nowhere near on par with Hawkwind's classic albums from the 1970s, anyone who says otherwise is severly misguided. Don't even THINK of listening to Hawkwind's post-1970s albums until you have thoroughly digested all their original releases on the United Artists and Charisma labels. Then you can decide for yourself ...
