It's a new Hawkwind album so why wouldn't you? :shock:

Should be a lawful requirement to do so. :D

Because I support Hawkwind. The REAL Hawkwind that is :)
OK?
You might as well ask people why they buy concert tickets as soon as Hawkeaster is announced. Same thing.
It's because when Hawkwind do something we want to be a part of it.

I pre-ordered the vinyl today. It was a very pleasant surprise to see a new studio album coming out. It's getting quite rare for bands to release a new album per year, especially in case on old bands. Also, I enjoyed The Machine Stops a lot, so pre-ordering this was a no-brainer for me.
And at least here in Finland I haven't seen copies of The Machine Stops in record stores, at least on vinyl, so I would have had to order this from internet anyway.

Judged by those SoundCloud samples Ady posted on the previous page I am anticipating 'Woods' a classic album of great inspiration!
:-)
some really superb bass runs in there

I see that amazon have put up a clip of Have You Seen Them, indeed it's available to buy individually:

I must admit I'm quite impressed with it. That sounds distinctly like they've let Richard near the microphone again. Pretty heavy sounding all in all.

Interesting. I really liked "Have You Seen Them". Crucially iTunes has the times of all the tracks too, there's some pretty lenthy numbers:

1 Into the Woods 6:16
2 Cottage in the Woods 3:51
3 The Woodpecker 0:51
4 Have You Seen Them 6:58
5 Ascent 3:41
6 Space Ship Blues 6:35
7 The Wind 4:09
8 Vegan Lunch 5:18
9 Magic Scenes 6:11
10 Darkland 2:13
11 Wood Nymph 5:57
12 Deep Cavern 2:26
13 Magic Mushroom 9:27

I'm starting to feel very positive about this release from what I've heard.

So, now I've heard the opening track Into the woods in its entirety. I'm pretty impressed, though Dave's treated vocals which are more spoken than sung take a bit of getting used to, I'm guessing that will be sung if and when they play it live. I quite like the juxtaposition of heavy chugging guitars with the hooting of owls!

Overall, it's coming across as a pretty heavy album, guitars and bass are very much to the forefront. It's got an almost Masters of Reality/Stoner Rock type feel to it based upon the two tracks I've heard. The fact they're now playing Northampton as well raises the increased possiblity of me seeing them more than once on their current tour.
