Customer Review

Don't you love it when you take a chance, buy a CD and it turns out to be exactly the kind of music you were hoping for? I had heard of Galactic because Warren Miller uses their funky/jazzy tunes in a bunch of his skiing movies. After hearing "Hamp's Hump" and the title track, I figured if half the songs were this good then the album was worth it. Well, ALL the songs are that good! I also love the funky tunes used in the movies "Get Shorty" and "Out of Sight", but had yet to find a good band or CD that sounded like that. The search is over, Galactic is it (a little less organ than those movies, however!). You'll groove to all of these songs, about half include a lead singer. Galactic has a jazz sound to them but they maintain a primary funk feel to their music. Some might compare them to Medeski, Martin & Wood but I say MMW is the other way around, more jazz than funk. Regardless, if you've heard at least one Galactic song before you're going to love the rest of this album. And if you have never heard Galactic but like any of the stuff I've mentioned, give these guys a try. You might have a new fav.
