CD Reviews
Bloodlines
Review by Gary Hill
It seems that Spirits Burning’s sound is a very diverse thing. With this album the more familiar space rock elements are joined with jazz, psychedelia and even dance club music.

Earth Born
Review by Gary Hill
Since this disc features performances from a number of people who have been involved with Hawkwind (most notably Wishart herself) comparisons to that band are obvious. A lot of the music lives up to that. In fact a good deal of this disc reminds me of a more pure progressive rock oriented Hawkwind with some serious jazz thrown into the mix.

Spirits Burning - and Clearlight - The Roadmap In Your Head
Review by G. W. Hill
There is quite a range of sound here. It is all definitely prog rock, but within that realm there are things like electronic music, folk prog, space, fusion and more.

Review by Gary Hill
Due to the packaging and recording quality, I always thought this was a bootleg.

Hawkwind - Classic Rock Legends DVD
Review by Bruce Stringer
Another video from the Classic Rock Legends archives and this time it's the Space Bandits line-up of the mighty Hawkwind. Alan Davey (bassist) has claimed this to be one of his favourite periods and, given that it is a mixture of older as well as new talent, one can see a fresh injection of energy in the band's live sound.

Mooch - Dr. Silbury’s Liquid Brainstem Band
Review by Gary Hill
This is a double disc set from Mooch and while you might be reminded of The Beatles’ Sergeant Peppers… by the title, I don’t get the feeling this is any kind of massive concept album. Instead it’s a series of slices of electronic space rock with a strong emphasis on the “space” part of that moniker.

Review by Gary Hill
Chronicling the entire career of the band, this box set really is a wonderful collection. It shows the diversity of Hawkwind in all their varying styles.

Astralfish - Far Corners
Review by G. W. Hill

Since both Don Falcone and Bridget Wishart are involved in this project, as they are in Spirits Burning, one might expect this to sound like that act.

Osiris the Rebirth - Lost
Review by Gary Hill

This disc includes a guest appearance by Hawkwind alum Bridget Wishart. That, in itself draws comparisons to Hawkwind.

Hawkwind - Palace Springs
Review by Gary Hill
Coming from a band with seemingly a million albums under their belt, this is really one of their best live discs. It captures a great, if quite short, period of the band and does so with a style and texture that really is incredible.

Hawkwind - Palace Springs (Remastered Edition)
Review by G. W. Hill
If you’ve never owned this live CD from Hawkwind (or even if you have, now is the time to get it). This newly remastered edition sounds better than the original release to my ears.

This first disc from Osiris the Rebirth finds the group in a great space rock meets mainstream prog style.

Hawkwind - Space Bandits
Review by Gary Hill
The only studio album to feature this lineup, this one leaves me wishing they had done more. It is difficult with the incredible amount of material this band have released to really pick out one or two best albums, but this one would definitely be in the running.

Omenopus - The Archives
Review by G. W. Hill

I have to say that I’ve liked everything from Omenopus. One thing remains constant with them (other than some personnel) and that’s change.

Hawkwind - The GWR Years 1988-1991
Review by G. W. Hill
It's hard for me to pick favorite Hawkwind albums. I mean, I'm a big fan of the band, and I like pretty much all of their albums.

Omenopus - The Plague
Review by G. W. Hill

Since this project includes Bridget Wishart, one might expect it to be space rock.
