CD Reviews
Ghost
Review by Gary Hill

I had no idea what to expect here. Well, I had ideas that it would be a space rock set, and some of it is, but I really didn't grasp just how much territory this album would cover.

Spirits Burning - & Michael Moorcock - The Hollow Lands
Review by Gary Hill
Spirits Burning really puts out some interesting music. It's generally in the space rock zone, but there is quite a bit of range to it.

Spirits Burning & Bridget Wishart - 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.

Hawkwind - California Brainstorm
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.

Spirits Burning & Bridget Wishart - 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.

Hawkwind - Epoch Eclipse
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 Gary 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.

Djinn - Last Wish
Review by Gary Hill
When you’ve got an album with both Alan Davey and Bridget Wishart as the main contributors, comparisons to Hawkwind are obvious.

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 Gary 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.

Hawkestrel - Pioneers of Space
Review by Gary Hill
Alan Davey is the man who is most responsible for Hawkestrel. It's basically his baby.

Osiris the Rebirth - Remnants of Life
Review by Gary Hill
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 Gary 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.

Hawkestrel - The Future Is Us
Review by Gary Hill
The quick story is that this is an album with a lot of Hawkwind alums providing their talents. The longer tale is that it was assembled by Alan Davey with various parts coming from sessions recorded over the years.

Hawkwind - The GWR Years 1988-1991
Review by Gary 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.

Mooch - The Pagan Year
Review by Gary Hill
Mooch’s latest CD is a concept album that delivers the pagan year as 8 tracks each corresponding to one of the 8 major festivals of the pagan calendar.

Omenopus - The Plague
Review by Gary Hill
Since this project includes Bridget Wishart, one might expect it to be space rock.
