HAWKWIND: Atomhenge 76: CD

Nov 22, 2009

If I had to break down and recommend one of this batch of Hawkwind records, “Atomhenge 76” is definitely it.  This is prime stuff, the spaciest, tastiest space rock of the bunch.  Good lineup, an amazing great version of “Reefer Madness” kicking it off, classics like “Brainstorm” and “Sonic Attack,” plus a bunch of tunes I wasn’t already familiar with.  Up there with the best of my Hawks records, this is the one I find myself reaching for the most, of the stuff that’s newer to the Hawkwind section and hasn’t already been listened to fifty times like “Complete ’79” or “Space Ritual.”
