Only seven drifted back from the otherworld...

Otherworld is the superb new CD from Space Ritual and it does exactly what you would expect it to. The sound is pure space rock, the songs are science fantasies, there are a few passing references to Hawkwind, and quite a few songs with Michael Moorcock lyrics.

The later includes The Black Corridor, from the Hawkwind album Space Ritual, which is a good version bravely done given that the original was sung by Bob Calvert.

Many of the songs have been part of their live set for some time now, including Bubbles, Walking Backwards and the sublime title track Otherworld, from which only seven breezed back from.
