    Batt's orchestral arrangements as the band revisit classics such as "Quark..." and "Psychic Power" are surprisingly effective, even majestic in places. [Nov 2018, p.30]

    Purists may wince, but the takes are fresh. [Oct 2018, p.93]

    For the majority of the tracks featured here, Hawkwind and Batt have jumped the shark with enough velocity to achieve geostationary orbit. [Sep 2018, p.59]

    A Brock-sung acoustic setting of We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago is a highlight, but the less said about how the massed saxes treat Down Through The Night the better. [Sep 2018, p.91]
