3 stars Hawkwind's best live album?

This live album contains many of Hawkwind's best ever songs including four from my favourite Hawkwind album Levitation. Angels Of Death, Spirit Of The Age, and Assault And Battery/Void Of Golden Light were best tracks from their respective studio albums and Assassins Of Allah is another live favourite. I'm not a big fan of Hawkwind, but this set of songs is reasonably compelling. It far outshines the overrated Space Ritual which I find noisy and sloppy. The performances here are not perfect, but much better and quite good in their own right. I would still recommend to start with the Levitation studio album, but this live album is a good second purchase.
