3 stars Another one of those guys who sounds nothing like the band he just left. Baffo Banfi - one time member of 'Biglietto per l'Inferno' released this album in 1978.

'Galaxy my Dear' sounds incredibly like a cross between Edgar Froese and Klaus Schulze circa 1975 which isn't a bad thing at all. Full of old school Berlin electronics from the outset, this will please Tangerine Dream and Schulze fans via 74-77. There's very little wrong with 'Galaxy My Dear' other than the fact that it sports the most dreadful artwork (what the hell's going on with those dungarees?) That and the fact that it sounds like downright plagiarism.

Admittedly the album was made with acknowledgment to Klaus Schulze who he considered his one major influence on the creation of this recording. Fair enough...

Anyway, this is a damn sight better than the other Schulze copycat 'Edelbert von Deyen' from the same era who's artwork was excellent but who's music was utter pants.

There are one or two ropey, rather cheesy moments involving the choice of keyboard sound along with an attempt to duplicate almost outright, Edgar Froese's 'Aqua' side 2, which sends things back to 1973. A bit directionless, but overall this is not bad at all. Recommended to you old Berlin electronics folk out there.
