Hawkwind - In Your Area (1998)
The 21st album from this British band.
The band was a sextet on this album with a lineup of keyboards, bass, drums, percussion, computer, synths, guitars and vocals.
This album is half and half live and studio recording.
The live tracks has a very punky feel with a lot of reggae too. There is not much space rock here.
The studio track has a bit more space rock feel although the punk feeling is still there. But it still has a lot more space rock than punk.
The sound is OK. Nevertheless, this album has the feel of being cobbled together and rushed onto the market. Even the logo is wrong and unworthy a band like this one.
The music here is nowhere near the standards set by the band on their first albums. The album is cheap and nasty.
Half a point added to the studio part. The live songs are a total disaster. And this is the worst album I have ever heard from this album. Avoid.
