I'm just getting into Hawkwind. God damn it they're excellent.

Man, there is nothing like the 1st time you hear Hawkwind..

I first got into them in the late eighties, with Hall of the Mountain Grill. I picked it up having never heard them at all before, just on word of mouth, (+ I was a Motorhead fan, and this was an album with Lemmy on it. ) I was totally blown away!

Well you struck gold with probably their easiest album - Hall of the mountain grail. They can be super hit or miss. They have these stellar moments and a few "up there" albums and a tons of shite to step around. Get Hawkwind right and no one challenges them. Pick up the wrong album and you will never go back to them.

That's very true. The next one I picked up was 'The Xenon Codex' ( I wanted something more recent at the time), and I was very confused.

It did grow on me, but it wasn't what I expected at all.
