The Machine Stops is a concept album by space rock band Hawkwind, released on 15 April 2016. It is inspired by the . Forster novel of the same name. It is Hawkwind's twenty-ninth studio album, Hawkwind's first album recorded without the involvement of Tim Blake since 2010's Blood of the Earth and the first to feature bassist Haz Wheaton.

The Machine Stops is based on E. M. Forster's sci-fi classic, a prophetic tale written in 1909 predicting a future living in isolated, subterranean cells, communicating with others only by the use of a personal screen. Every need is controlled and catered for by the omnipresent machine, which inevitably begins to break down. An atmospheric, musical interpretation beginning in tunnels deep beneath the earth  . The best album from Hawkwind in years. Thought provoking and relevant to todays online world.

Only for completionists (7%). For what is more-or-less their twenty-sixth album (excluding compilations and various offshoot groups) since their beginnings in 1969, & Machine Stops' sees Dave Brock's legendary space-rock institution Hawkwind returning once more to a format that the band does so well, the concept album

The Machine Stops imagines a future world where people live beneath the surface of the ruined Earth, where the all-powerful Machine satisfies all their needs. But Kuno is a restless man who has decided to escape to the surface and see what the natural world is really like. Brock and his bandmates have followed Forster's story fairly closely, and make sure listeners see the parallels between his tale (published in 1909) and the present day.

The Machine Stops is another fine album from Hawkwind. Another fine Hawkwind album and could serve as a great soundtrack, in parts, to a movie version of the story, if it was ever made. As an occasional listener to the band I was surprised how the keyboards almost dominate the guitars.

The Machine Stops is the stunning new album from Hawkwind. An honest-to-goodness concept album from the perennial space rockers Hawkwind. Over the years the term concept with regard to rock music has become a dirty word, however this time we are treated to a brilliant rock album, that just happens to have a running story line, one that Hawkwind can rightly be proud. Closely following . Forster's dystopian novella The Machine Stops combines the best of Hawkwind down the years with Dave Brock's eye for a good story. A coherent whole, the only dodgy track is Track 11, Yum-Yum, which is out of place on the album.
