Huw Lloyd Langton

On The Move

Review by Gary Hill

This album by Hawkwind alumni Langton is a great rocking release. It has no weak material and quite a bit that is very strong. Langton shows himself to be a both a great guitarist and excellent songsmith. The material on the CD ranges from bluesy rock to arena rock and even includes an extended space jam.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2001 Year Book Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Got Your Number
Pretty straight ahead rock and roll, this one does feel a bit like Hawkwind, but mostly just in the vocal department. It features an interesting instrumental break. The guitar solo includes some nice stereo effects.
I Could Cry
With a pretty mainstream hard rock texture, this cut is in a slower groove.
Wrong Streets
With a more arena rock balladic texture and a very inspired guitar solo, this one is a bout someone reaching out to a victim of abuse.
On The Move
With a great fast paced progish, almost Celtic texture, this one really rocks. An instrumental, the only complaint here is that it is a bit overlong.
Move Over Lady
A fairly straightforward rock cut in a mid tempo, this one gets a bit funky at times. It features a couple of great jazzy guitar solos.
Finally Finding
This one is another that has a somewhat jazzy texture at times, over a killer rock groove. With the vocals feeling a bit reggaeish at times, this one features some great guitar work.
Farewell
Slow and bluesy, this is another instrumental and a blues guitar showcase.
Just the Same
Another arena rock sort of cut, this one gets more bluesy as it carries on.
No Participation
With a nice rock and roll groove, this one feels a bit like early Bowie at times.
Outside the Law
Built on a great hard rock groove, this one is one of the best on the disc.
Lonely Man
Another one that is quite bluesy, this one is a very strong rocker. It gets a bit spacey at times. It is a definite killer cut that wanders into prog territory and the extended jams include some more Hawkish moments.
Off the Cuff
This is a very brief and slow acoustic guitar solo.
