5.0 out of 5 stars Better with age, 3 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 25 Years On (Audio CD)
I was a big fan of Hawkwind during the 70's and still have most of the LP's on vinyl, including this, though I never really took to it (other than Psi Power and 25 years). I saw the live tour(Usher Hall)that accompanied the album and thought the sound was a bit jarring. Then having lost interest in Hawkwind in the 80's I think it safe to say I hadn't listened to the whole of 25 Years On in 30 years. Having recently bought a lot of those earlier albums in cd format and read the reviews of 25yo I got this too.

And am I glad I did, the whole record sounds so much crisper and because there's no turning the thing over not disjointed at all. 25yo stands apart from Hawkwind's work and has aged so much better. Robert Calvert may well be one the finest lyricist's this country has ever produced.

All the songs stand on their own and together, the three bonus tracks are a joy too. Haven't made it all the way through the second disc and maybe never will, not that big a fan I suppose.
