5.0 out of 5 stars In Search of Hawkwind July 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was probably in 3rd or 4th grade when I first discovered Hawkwind. A friend suggested I read Micheal Moorcock's Elric saga. After completeing the series, the violent visions in my pre-teen head thirsted for more. At my elementary school library I found that Moorcock was cross-referenced to a picture book about rock bands of the seventies. I learned from the book that he played with a band called "Hawkwind." At the time I listened to alot of Twisted Sister and Billy Idol and I wasn't about to spend my allowance on something as bizarre as what I saw in that book.
As I grew older (and my tastes matured?), I would see Hawkwind albums in the used bin at the local record store but, at that time, they seemed either too "cheesy" (a word we used alot back then) or too metal for me to take a chance on. Later, I became familiar with Motorhead and I had a renewed interest in science-fiction which lead me, after almost 20 years, back to Hawkwind.
What's the point? Well, the point is that people who really love music find deep personal and emotional connections to their favorite bands and albums. The fabric from which our tastes evolve is woven with memories of our pasts. That might be why when I first heard In Search of Space, everything about the album made sense to me. The smooth sonic segues between songs, the battling oscillators, the thudding bass and expressive drumming; faraway vocals and riffing guitars suggesting more than merely martian alienation.
This digitally remastered release of Hawkwind's In Search of Space album makes a perfect launching pad from which to explore other of the band's releases. Hawkwind completely come together conceptually and sonically on this album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hawkwind's Blast-Off Into Space Feb. 28 2002
Format:Audio CD
Marking a turn from Acid to Spacerock,Hawkwind's"In Search of Space"album chronicles the band's early,primitive beginnings. Utilizing standard rock instruments(-electric guitar,bass,drums, etc.)and an increasing number of electronics(-audio generators, effects,etc.)the album heralds the bands first excursions into the Space realm that made them famous.Solid drumming and bass work form the foundation of this album with Brock's hamfisted electric and acoustic strumming adding the ever important rhythm. The band's Electronics Gnomes add a complimentary "icing" of oscillator sweeps and sonic atomospherics to the rock proceedings. The tracks "Shouldn't Do That" and "Master of the Universe" being the album's standout cuts.Three newly added tracks add to this album's value.For more info on Hawkwind and the Spacerock scene visit the "All Time Classics" Webpage...

4.0 out of 5 stars Transitional music Oct. 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
It was difficult at first to appreciate this album. Since I got the album after it ("Doremi Fasol Latido") and the album before it ("Hawkwind") prior to purchasing this, I felt like the music was an evolutionary link between one album and the next. It was a big improvement from the band's debut, yet not quite their brilliant third album. However, after listening to it vigorously, I came to appreciate it. My favourite song on this is "We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago", though the tracks throughout are nicely balanced between instrumental songs, completely and utterly tripped out songs, and nice guitar songs.
"Children of the Sun" reminds me vaguely of anything unplugged by Radiohead, I wonder if it was a source of inspiration.
Overall, worth the purchasing price and then some.
