AllMusic Review by

Following the addition of Richard Tree, Hawkwind moved back in the direction of a harder sound, releasing this EP as something of a showcase for that. Of the four cuts presented, only "Wastelands" reflects the softer sound of It Is the Business of the Future to Be Dangerous, and that soon blends into the sonic chaos of "Are You Losing Your Mind," which has Tree screaming his lungs out. Recommended mainly for those who like their Hawkwind with sandpaper edges.
