I know that was really long-winded but it's near impossible for me to convey how mesmerising I found this cover as a teenager, and how perfect a companion image to the track 'Master of the Universe' it seemed (and still seems). Sonic Attack' and 'Orgone Accumulator' are from Space Ritual - two standout tracks from Hawkwind's best album.

Der Sound wird mit diesen ewig gephaserten und komprimiert klingenden Gitarren allerdings nach einiger Zeit etwas eintönig. Progressive space rock might have been a bit of a hard sell in a punk-saturated 1977, but there's enough going on throughout Masters of the Universe's 40 minute run time for anyone with even a passing interest in the music of Dave Brock, Nik Turner and their bandmates to pick up this compilation. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Turn the album cover and the rest of the painting presents itself - the mountains are grander, truly enormous.Sure, Masters of the Universe was compiled and released with no input from Hawkwind themselves, but it captures a crucial phase in their career where they were progressive rock icons, psychedelic space warriors and largely responsible for an international shortage of LSD, so it has its place in the collection of any fan of the band regardless of vintage. Holding the vinyl album cover while 'Master of the Universe' emerged slowly, kicked in and held its hypnotic rhythm I took in the statue-like figure with the Ohm symbol on him (the Master of the Universe? This is the first Hawkwind album that I bought - back in the days when albums were black and you had the option of playing them at the wrong speed. Ethan Larsh, an artist known for his exploration of various genres and musical mediums, consistently demonstrates his ability to craft authentic and sometimes deeply personal lyrics.

While Masters of the Universe's blend of studio and live material may initially seem a bit odd to the newcomer to Hawkwind, the two live cuts are probably the band's most beloved material outside of the standalone single "Silver Machine" (not on this compilation, but present on the aforementioned Roadhawks), and both "Sonic Attack" and "Orgone Accumulator" are mixed in such a way that any audience noise is kept to a minimum, to allow for an oddly seamless listening experience.It's hypnotic rhythm accompanied by noises of wind, explosions and other indefinable sounds created by Dik Mik's audio generators was an epiphone and it's still my favourite Hawkwind track. This was the first Hawkwind album I ever possessed and it still holds a special place and a certain mystique for me. So instead of getting new tracks to add to the collection I was inundated with the same stuff I already have. It was written by Nik Turner and Dave Brock and featured Turner on vocals, Brock on guitar, former Amon Düül II member Dave Anderson on bass, Del Dettmar and Dik Mik on synthesizers and Terry Ollis on drums. Few picks from their "Space Ritual" double live album, and Lemmy's proto-MOTÖRHEAD song from "The Hall of The Mountain Grill".

Brainstorm" is of course a classic but it always sounded a fraction better on Doremi than here, I guess this is a cheaper pressing? VG/EX means that the item's sleeve is in Very Good condition and the disc is in Excellent condition.Fissinger’s musical approach is refreshingly uncomplicated, allowing the beauty of the song’s simplicity to shine through. Dead Skunk" became a stinker for Loudon when he felt pressure to make another hit - his latest songs deal with mortality, his son Rufus, and picking up poop. The vinyl may have been one of the best compilations in the late 70s of the band, but the CD does not warn that it is a compilation in any way!

Running in at under 40mins,it can't be accused of 'overstaying its welcome' but does look unusual now that compilation CDs are often twice that length.
