5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Cd
This album is great, it is better than the original. It has extra tracks that I wasn't expecting...truly awesome! Love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm.... A good effort.. but somewhat lackadaisical...
While I own this CD and think that there are some fine moments on it, there is proof that it is Steve's weakest album. Don't get me wrong, the cosmic influenced hippie/love themes are still there, and that's what makes this album bearable, The members of Gong have all gone off to other projects, and the result is a straightforward, sometimes dull album. Stick with Fish...

2.0 out of 5 stars Uphillage, June 3 2002
This review is from: Motivation Radio (Audio CD)
Actually, Steve's music is usually a great pleasure to listen to. But Motivation Radio is easily his weakest album, probably because at the time (1976-77) Virgin was grooming our new age activator to be the next Jesus Christ Superstar. For this album at least, Steve went along with the charade. There are a few good moments here ("Light in the Sky" and "Searching for the Spark" are the best cuts), but you're much better off with Fish Rising, L, Green, or just about anything else by Steve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hillage at his BEST...but get the LP, March 21 2002

First of all, having said that this is Hillage's best album, let me say that I am TOTALLY disappointed with this particular CD release. The mastering is lousy; as another reviewer mentioned, it's distorted in places. THE ORIGINAL LP SOUNDS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS CD. Do yourself a favor -- seek out the LP ... A good, clean vinyl copy blows away this CD. Let's hope that someone gets the original master tapes and does this release justice with a polished re-master (and do I hear BONUS TRACKS???). *NOTE* for some reason, the CD release of "L", even though it's from the same label, seems not to have suffered the fate of "MOTIVATION RADIO". Still, it could use a good remaster as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stoned on spirit, Oct. 20 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Motivation Radio (Audio CD)
I was one year old when this album was released, but it really doesn't matter because this music is beyond time and space. Steve is a wonderfull guitarist, but his lyrics.......waauuw....so positive inspiring and life giving. So if you are depressed forget about seeing a psychiatrist go and listen to Motivation Radio instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not essential, Sept. 1 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Motivation Radio (Audio CD)
Steve's third solo album is a mixed bag. Each song alternates between light pop melodies, atmospheric synths and aggressive guitar rave-ups and there is no cohesion here. Nevertheless, there is some good material, especially the pop-oriented tunes "Hello dawn" and "Wait one moment". But the rest of the album sounds uneven and distorted. Casual fans would do better with purchasing the funky "Open", the dreamy "Green" or his later-era work with System 7.
