Title - 'The Final Frontier'
Artist - Nik Turner

For those not in the know, the uber talented Nik Turner is an English musician, best known as a former member of space rock pioneers Hawkwind.

Turner plays saxophones, flute, sings and is a composer and whilst with Hawkwind, was known for his experimental free jazz stylizations and, of course, his outrageous stage presence; which often meant donning full makeup and Ancient Egypt-inspired costumes!

Well, boys and girls, the space rock legend has now launched his latest solo project that goes further than any auralnaut has gone before!

Featuring all new and (highly) original songs that harken back to the sci-fi psychedelia of early Hawkwind, the just-released The Final Frontier (Purple Pyramid / Cleopatra Records) is a wondrous nine track album that you'll have on replay for days to come.

1. 'Out of Control'
2. 'Interstellar Aliens'
3. 'Thunder Rider'
4. 'The Final Frontier Part 1'
5. 'Back to the Ship'
6. 'Calling the Egyptians'
7. 'Strange Loop'
8. 'The Final Frontier Part 2'
9. 'Pad4'

From the soaring opening, drumtastic and keyboardliscious track 'Out Of Control' onward, the album is just as wonderfully space prog rock-drenched you could ever have hoped it would be.

The trippy psychedelic swirls of 'Interstellar Aliens' finds Turner at his musical finest, with the more gently building jazz-lite aspects of 'Thunder Rider' (Turner's long-running nickname!) a rather lovely discovery to behold too.

'The Final Frontier Part 1' is a passive walk back down into psychedelic way, with the more upbeat Eastern-flavored guitar sounds and beating drums of 'Back To The Ship' and the forthright energy of 'Calling The Egyptians' along next.

The longest track at nearly nine minutes is the space rock fusion beauty 'Strange Loop,' and that's backed by a short, and for the most part spoken word 'The Final Frontier Part 2' with the flute-inspired 'Pad4' rounding out his/our musical journey perfectly.
