Church of Hawkwind is the twelfth studio album by Hawkwind, released under the band name Church of Hawkwind in 1982. The name change reflects the fact that this was a musical departure for the band, being a more experimental electronic offering rather than the usual heavy rock that the band were known for at the time. Dave Brock resurrects the "Dr Technical" alias which he had previously used for production of the band's 1972 hit single "Silver Machine".
The Church of Hawkwind" is another very mediocre album with a few shining lights scattered here and there. Too many of Hawkwind's 80s albums were like this; lots of instrumentals and effects but no real songs to speak of. Oh well, there are 15 tracks so surely something will be worth salvaging here. The songs worth hunting down are 'Nuclear Drive', 'Damage of Life' and 'Some People Never Die', but the rest unfortunately are rather dull and uninspiring instrumentals

Church of Hawkwind is not a good album, even the most stand out track; the short but chilling 'Experiment with Destiny', is in fact a shortened rehash of the song 'Virgin of the World' from their previous album Sonic Attack. Church takes away a lot from the sound of Hawkwind and nothing new is added, the synthesiers do their best to fill the gap, but they are shallow and hollow, a mindless mass of blaring 80s beeps, bleeps, whizzes and noise
