I think its a great album.  Futuristic Space Rock.  Which is what Hawkwind
seems to be about (in their day) - pushing the boundaries of expectation and
breaking/bending the rules.   Techno and trance are just evolved forms of
space rock if it is looked at closely but I know how frightening change is
for a great majority of people(myself included on some issues).  For example
the way our parents etc hated Space Rock when it arrived on our/their
stereos.  There's an interesting thought....
