HAWKWIND X In Search Of Space reviews

Wonderfully setting the off, "You Shouldn't Do That"'s improvisational looseness and rhythmic fusion smoothly open up the album into the s;ace of Hawkwind. Just 6 tracks, but every one of them is a classic. We don't get vocals until almost 5 minutes in. In Search Of Space refined the idea, but theirs was a cult phenomenon that focused mostly on the live perf Our ship will fold like a cardboard file and the noises of our minds compress into a disc of shining black, spinning in eternity That somebody would be Lemmy, who made his introduction on the forceful Silver Machine.

Really, when you get right down to it, right into the core of the album, there is a lot to get lost in here, the progressive, spacey, psychedelic soundscapes are enough to blow your mind even if you're not on drugs.

Hawkwind jamming out a song was always an unsure thing, but here it sounds slightly transparent.

George Chkiantz and Hawkwind. Still, this is a great snashot of a specific era.

In Search of Space strengthened Hawkwind's science fiction-type brand of progressive rock, gaining bass player Dave Anderson and galactic poet extraordinaire Rob Calvert, while losing John Harrison at the same time.

It has never lost its trance like mesmiric power as it cruises effortlessly through its 4 minutes 40 seconds. Unfortunately, the boxy production lets the whole thing down a bit, and Turner's infernal and incessant noodling spoils "You Shouldn't Do That" for me. Only pure space sound.


Did you say fillers? Of course, by this point any listener expecting something other than noodley sci-fi scat will be so frustrated by this over-rated mess that they will have probably moved on to something more interesting which wouldn't be very hard.
