CD Reviews

An outstanding two CD Hawkwind summary
Scott L. Myers | Miami, Florida | 01/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Undoubtedly one of the most unappreciated and ridiculed bands in the United Kingdom, Hawkwind was a true enigma. The eccentric British accepted Hawkwind's lunacy but rejected their musical frenzy. The sophistication that we hear in most European musical endeavors is indeed lacking. Instead Hawkwind presented us with a powerful spellbounding sound which was both mystical and spacy. This two-CD anthology includes the highlights of the band's history which is close to three decades in length. The classics are here such as "Hurry On Sundown", "Space Is Deep", "Motorhead", and "Urban Guerrilla". However that is just a small sampling of the close to 2 and 1/2 hours of music here. All the songs were carefully selected and are quite representative of the group's long and exotic career. A truly creative and unique band."
Not as Good as I Thought It Would Be
James Choma | 10/09/1999
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This album is not a good one for folks just getting into - or wanting to get into - Hawkwind's music. The quality of the live tracks is abysmal. I found the only good part of the two CD set to be the additional material at the end from "Xenon Codex" and "Electric Teepee". Find another anthology to get the full scope of their music."
Just awful

"A good selection of songs, but an absolutely abysmal quality of sound. I have never heard a disc that sounds this BAD. Stay away, avoid, run fast, run far. Do not buy this disc."
