5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Voyage At The Speed Of Light March 26 2013
By Derek Draven TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Hawkwind's debut album may have been enough to get the band recognized as one of the newest pioneers of highly experimental rock music, but it was 'In Search Of Space' that truly put them on the map as a heavy hitting contender in the genre. Released just 13 months after the original album, 'In Search' amps up Hawkwind's sonic template by bringing electronic synthesizers to the forefront to serve as a full fledged instrument, rather than a mood setter. That doesn't mean that the rest of the band is put out to pasture, though. Opening track 'You Shouldn't Do That' is a ridiculous 15 minutes and 42 seconds of repetitive craziness whose simplicity cleverly hides the band's remarkable creative genius. Hard rock and psychedelic rock collide to create space rock, taking the listener into experimental territory never before glimpsed at that period in musical history. Nik Turner's sloppy saxophone work, which would have been jettisoned with any other band on earth, fits perfectly here, taking just the right amount of cues from the sixties, without ignoring the changing landscape of the seventies. Yet, it's Dave Brock's impeccable sense of timing that keeps musically xenophobic listeners from losing touch with what's going on amidst all the chaos. In short, this first track is little more than an excuse to drop acid, close your eyes, turn it up, and fall into every color of the sonic rainbow with free abandon, at high speeds.

'You Know You're Only Dreaming' is psychedelia driven by Nik Turner's flute work, heavily soaked in reverb and delay, and partnered with Terry Ollis' incessant 4/4 bass drum kicks, Brock's seething guitar licks, with Del Dettmar's frantic synthesizers that build in tempo throughout the course of a 6 minute and 38 second running time.

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.
