Hawkwinds masterpiece remastered at last,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Warrior On The Edge Of Time (Audio CD)
Sometimes a classic album has to be reissued .........on its own,you dont want it diluted with bonus tracks/outakes/half baked live tracks,you dont need it remixed by someone else who mixes it the way 'they' think it should have sounded( it might be an improvement,it might not)...So having weighed it all up,i went for the single disc version(i may purchase the 3 disc set at a later stage).
Guess what,i think i've made the right decision,this remaster is superb,the sound just flows from the speakers,'Magnu','Assault n Battery/The Golden Void' all sound perfect,has 'The Demented Man' ever sounded better? 'Kings of Speed ' just rocks and the 1 bonus track 'Motorhead is perfecttly placed at the end and as such is unobtrusive.
Packaging is fine nothing spectacular,that will be left to the other editions i would imagine,decent liner notes/interview etc,as for the sound quality,well to my(admittedly 35 years of gig damaged ears) it sounds fine,up loud ,down low.its fine,i'm very happy with it.
5 stars all the way,rediscover Hawkwinds finest hour.

Just purchased the 3 disc version yesterday so I'm looking forward to having a listen over the weekend - one of Hawkwind's greatest studio albums so I think it's worth checking out the alternative versions & extra tracks as well - totally agree re The Demented Man - a stellar moment for Dave Brock.
