4.0 out of 5 stars What a BLAST !, 18 Oct. 2012
This review is from: We Are One (Audio CD)
First off - this definitely isn't a 5 star album. There are a few clunkers on here, particularly the montage track 'Shut Up' and the confused instrumental 'Water Drum' However.......the good stuff on here is absolutely brilliant! Opener 'We Are One' blasts off the launch pad with a fabulously heavy riff that (if you get a chance to see them live - and I hope everyone does) will have you leaping around. Second track 'Mothership' follows in the same vein, with a great wee chorus. And so it goes on. The overall sound of the album is very guitar based, loads of raw energy. Ron's vocals on some of the tracks are very Calvert-like - in a good way. And the support provided by bass and drums are solid and inventive. Yes, one of the tracks sounds very reminiscent of Spirit of the Age, but then it veers off into it's own space.

The Hawklords don't need to trade off the back of Hawkwind's name. Based on the strength of this album, and the experience of seeing them play much of this CD live - they can more than hold their own as a stand alone band. I just hope they keep it together, as I can't wait for their next record! Long live the Lords!
