    Well, I think the heaviest Hawkwind songs would be others. Let me say: 1. Night of the Hawks 2. Magnu 3. Lost Johnny 4. Paradox 5. Greenback Massacre Quark, Strangeness and Charm IMO is not psychedelic at all. The others I don't know. You should also add a list for the most atmospheric songs, which in my opinion are: 1. Hall of the Mountain Grill 2. Space Chase 3. The Demented Man 4. Hassan I Sahba 5. Adjust me But, in all other ways, you did a very good selection.

    Thanks for dropping by; and I like the idea of a list of the most atmospheric songs. :)

    Hum... Where is Harvey Bainbridge ? He had a great great influence within Hawkwind, and is one of the longest members of the band.

    Well that list is weighted for involvement in the band's key recordings and I just don't think Harvey had much of an influence of any of Hawkwind's most significant records.

    Warrior on the edge of time is a very good album.
