5.0 out of 5 stars Hawkwind - Warrior On The Edge Of Time (Review) 19 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
My brothers introduced me to this album within a year or two of its release, when I was about six or seven: seeing it now on CD available on Amazon brings back very fond memories of the original vinyl.
The original album cover - with its gate fold shield on one side and the warrior on horseback poised above a precipitous drop on the other - was second only in distinctiveness to ELP's scary Geiger cover to Brain Salad Surgery.
The music itself also made a big impact - I can still recall the hooks vividly 20 years or so after last hearing the tunes: Kings of Speed sums up hard, simple 70s rock with that classic thick sound. Magnu has the terrific ambience, driving riff, delayed vox, and eastern-tinged electric fiddle melodies that make it so memorable. Spiral Galaxy has that ultra fat synth sound and drive, I would still play it at the right kind of disco. The spoken bits were...weird and met with a certain amount of derision at the time, but added a certain drama to proceedings!
When I was able to buy my own records (in the mid 80s), it was the quality of this album sent me to explore Hawkwind's back catalogue and contemporary releases. I found some interesting material on most of the albums, but the earlier stuff seemed too weird and the later material was prone to inconsistency, so my tastes evolved. On a camping trip with my two brothers quoted a Hawkwind roadie who ventured "Hey man, that was one of the best albums they ever made" - I would more than agree.
The instrumentation and production on this album sounded exquisite played back on the modest record players at our disposal (we were too poor and ignorant to go in for 'hi-fi separates'). I would second (third?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eternal Champion 12 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
Essentially based on the Eternal Champion Mythology created by the author Michael Moorcock, Warrior on the Edge of time is on a par with Hall of the Mountain Grill as one of the best two Hawkwind Albums.
It is a bit strange, with each track interspersed with interlinking dialogue from Michael Moorcock himself. But stick with it. This album grows on you and it is difficult not to stop yourself repeating several tracks and experiencing the icy shiver as either guitar or synth slices up your backbone.
It is not easy to get hold of a copy. If you have one, treasure it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this while you can! 26 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite Hawkwind record ever and showcases a classic line-up at the height of their abilities with great bass, drums, guitar, sax, synth and violin, the production is also excellent and crisp so it all sounds amazing too.

The original album came with a double gatefold sleeve with a shield on one side and the warrior on his horse on the other. A shame CD can't do this but in terms of the music it's impossible to get this on playable vinyl. As a CD reissue this comes out rarely and goes very quickly so get it while you can!

Assault & Battery is a great opener which bridges to the Golden Void and together thay are fantastic.
Opa-Loka is probably the first ever piece of trance music and inspired a whole genre that Hawkwind never got much credit for.
Magnu is my favourite track with a superb intro and this song really belts it out. Even at 8 minutes it got the occasional airing on Radio 1 (by Tommy Vance?).
Spiral Galaxy 28948 is just waiting for Hollywood to use it in a sci-fi epic although the intro is so dark it makes me think Ozzy!
Then we have the Lemmy songs that he also did as Motorhead, I'm sure he plays the bass like a rhythm guitar.

So if you like the band or other progressive rock bands this is a must have and a great place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hawkwind Masterpiece 4 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Hawkwind at their most excellent.
Superb, spacial, atmospheric and creative. It takes you to another place!
It tells a story and some of the tracks are some of the best ever written in rock history.

A must for anybody thinking they know rock music.

One track "The Demented Man" in particular is absolutely bloody amazing !

4.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Hawkwind album ? Very close 22 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Having bought this album in 1975 on its release its a little bit difficult to be wholly objective about reviewing an album that you've had in your possession for almost 30 years ( gulp, its it that long ?? ) . But in saying that I can see it has stood the test of time ....excuse the pun !
It contains probably Hawkwind's best ever track - or should that be plural as the first two songs " Assault And Battery " and " Golden Void " are effectively one 10 minute musical " piece " . It is an absolute opus and even after all these years its an absolute monster of a track that just soars with grace . I can remember when I first listened to this all those years ago that I was absolutely gob smacked as I never knew Hawkwind had this level of musical ability as it is almost classical . The new keyboard player , Simon House , stamps his signature all over this track . In my opinion Hawkwind - although releasing some fine songs since then - have never come close to emulating this musical extravaganza . Its awesome !
Next up is the pulsing , bass driven " Opa Loka " ( not played on by Lemmy either ! ) and again it stands the test of time very well . If " Space Ritual " contained guitar burst that were the precursor for punk then this song had trance written all over it . If you didn't know when or who this song was from then you may have guessed it was a left field track from The Chemical Brothers or The Orb ! Ahead of their time or what .
" The Wizard Blew His Horn " and other spoken , spacey tracks featuring Michael Moorcock is where it fell down slightly for me and the passage of time has not served the tracks well . I disliked them 30 years ago and even more so now . They just come across as weird and " Dr Who " amateurish tosh now .
