5.0 out of 5 stars My first Hawkwind album Oct. 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album represents my first Hawkwind listening experience, and I'm proud of that. While it isn't the only good album that the band ever released, it was the perfect gateway CD into a more intense obsession with the band's music. Compared to Doremi Fasol Latido, this album seems somehow more balanced. It is full of crazy spacey sound effects, yet in my opinion doesn't overuse these effects. The use of mellotron, calimba, oboe, and all the other more expected instruments work together perfectly. And, to be honest, while I didn't care much for the remixes, two of the bonus songs ("Paradox" and "It's So Easy") add great value to this album, as well as what in my opinion is a better ending (assuming the original edition ended on "Goat Willow"). I review my musical purchases two ways: by whether or not I want to listen to it over and over again after I get it and get into the music, and whether, after I've given it a rest for a while, I can pick up the album and experience the same satisfaction from listening to it. "Hall of the Mountain Grill" passed the test with flying colours.
The first song had me hooked. "Psychedelic Warriors (Disappear In Smoke)" is my favourite track on the album. Long before I got a feel for other great songs like "D-Rider", "Web Weaver", "You'd Better Believe It" and "Lost Johnny", I was listening to the opening track over and over again.
I used to love putting this CD in my discman and going for long walks in a nearby park, in the bright afternoon sun. It seems the perfect soundtrack for such days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heeeeeee! Space Dec 13 2002
Format:Audio CD
Now THIS is good. Not only did Hawkwind still have Lemmy, but they went and got ex-High Tidesman Simon House and incorporated fiddle and Mellotron (YAY!) into their already voluminous wall of sound. The spacy whooshiness of DOREMI FASOL LATIDO morphed into a more 70s proggish atmosphere- -probably inevitible given the new instrumentation and Zeitgeist (heh heh)- -which served the band well. Some of the Hawkers' best material is here: Nik Turner's 'D-Rider', Lemmy's own pre-Motorhead 'Lost Johnny' and the stunning, live seven-minute hooter 'You'd Better Believe It', the title of which is probably good advice coming as it does from the ragged throat of Mr. Kilmister. The bonus tracks aren't absolutely essential (the mediocre live 'It's So Easy' was the B-Side to a tragically truncated 'You'd Better Believe It') but still nice to have around, and some of the tracks ('Psychedelic Warlords', 'Paradox') lumber on longer than they really need to. But the Hawkwind of the 70s never strived for economy anyway, and anything worth doing is worth over-doing, eh? Besides, the shorter instrumental tracks, especially House's title track, make up for it. Play this back-to-back (or side-by-side) with 1975's WARRIOR ON THE EDGE OF TIME and see what happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pyschedelic Warlords Vs. The Mellotron Oct. 28 2001
Format:Audio CD
How can anyone in their right mind not like Hawkwind? This band, in many ways the British Space-Rock version of the Grateful Dead, has throughout its long and tumultous history, produced a number of crunching moronic songs embellished with spacey effects without the least bit of self-conscieness, pretention or shame.
The Hall of the Mountain Grill is proto-punk, proto-prog, proto-space. All the elements mix together in music that ranges from three chord jamming to five chord jamming. Standout Simon House is on this album, a wolf among stoner sheep, who lifts the band out of its wonderful sludge with his playing. Dave Brock and Nik Turner either needed everyone's help or no one's, however, and unbowed by talent or convention, they and their bandmates created in Hall of Mountain King a work of Art that so captures the time and place of its making, that to listen to it now, in the over-planned, stunted, and pre-fab "outrages" of our current music, is to witness what true revolution and outrage is about. Weep for us, weep for Hawkwind.
If only they would rerelease "Warrior on the Edge of Time." Come back Lemmy! Rise from the dead Robert Calvert! Eternity beckons! Hawkind! What more need anyone say?
