Farflung - 'So Many Minds,So Little Time' (Cleopatra)

"I had recieved this CD by total surprise,as I've heard of Farflung before.I've apparently met a member of the band before as well.Turns out that guitarist Tommy Grenas had been out on tour with Nik Turner before.My guess is that Grenas had probably picked up a few tricks along the way.'So Many...' is a way-out-there sounding compilation CD.I am VERY impressed with what it has to offer.I remember hearing "Vision Of Infinity" on some Cleopatra label various artists disc.My other favorites are "Landing On Cydonia",the Can cover of "Future Days",the ass-kicking "Mother Orbis" and "The Way The Sky Is".Top grade modern day space rock/industrial release."
Hawkwind fans can branch out with this one...

"I bought this album one day mainly because I couldn't find anymore Hawkwind albums in the record store I was at, and I had heard that some of the people in Farflung had supported Nik Turner. While Farflung music isn't strikingly similar to Hawkwind, it conveys some of the same spacey feeling. There are two great heavy-riffing songs, "Vision of Infinity" and "The Way The Sky Is", that satisfy the need for the heavier,Lemmy era of Hawkwind music. "Landing On Cydonia" and "Icarus/Daedalus" are both excellent examples of a more epic-length audio journey through space. The second half of the album lacks catchy themes and thus isn't that memorable, but is quite good none-the-less. This is a good album, probably better than several of Hawkwind's more questionable albums, and well worth the money."
