SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Galactic Cowboys self-titled debut album was released in 1991. Considering the music it contains Iīm pretty surprised that I havenīt been introduced to this album before now. This is the kind of music I would probably have enjoyed greatly in the early nineties.

Galactic Cowboys donīt play progressive metal as I think of that genre. Which means that this is not Dream Theater, Queensrĸche or Fates Warning influenced in any way. The style is rather a mix of primarely traditional heavy metal and hard rock with a few hints to thrash metal. In addition to that, there are a few odd-ball moments here and there that makes this album a bit different from your usual metal album. Those moments are very few though and personally I donīt consider this to be progressive metal.

I hear influences from as different bands as Extreme, Anthrax ( the rare thrashy riffing sounds so much like the grovy thrash riffing that Anthrax is known for), GunsīnīRoses ( just listen to Monty Colvinīs vocals in My School), Waltari, Suicidal Tendencies, Ugly Kid Joe, Kingīs X and Faith No More. The music is generally very melodic and this is especially due to Monty Colvinīs very melodic vocal lines and his background choirs which by the way are very well done. Some of the songs are pretty good and Iīm enjoying Iīm Not Amused, My School, Kaptain Krude and the most thrashy song on the album Sea of Tranquility while Iīm having a hard time enjoying the suckery Someone for Everyone ( a bit too much like Extreme when they are most commercial and cheesy). Galactic Cowboys is the kind of band that is serious one minute and add odd-ball humour to their music the next and that kind of behaviour is pretty surely and aquired taste. Iīm biased about it if I have to be frank. I guess it depends on my mood.

The musicianship is good but the drumming could have been a bit more subtle. Itīs way too loud and clumsy in the quiet parts.

The production is exactly the kind of production that I associate with the early nineties and I like it. Again the biggest flaw is the drums though. They sound wrong in the mix somehow ( Maybe too loud).

Iīve listened a lot to this album and I generally enjoy it but it doesnīt really do that much for me. Overall itīs a pretty average album seen with todayīs eyes but Iīm sure that I would feel differently about it if I had purchased it back then. 3 stars is my rating. Fans of any of the above mentioned bands might get something out of this. I put it on, on occasion but it never gets two spins in a row.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars GALACTIC COWBOYS are from Texas and share a lot in common with fellow Texans KINGS X. Both were managed by Sam Taylor in the early days and played a lot of shows together.They also have a similar heavy sound with harmonies and Christian based lyrics. I would say GALACTIC COWBOYS are heavier, funnier and more complex though.

"I'm Not Amused" is a good track. Love the way it opens with that cow bellowing followed by cricket sounds and breaking glass. Not your typical intro eh ? Heavy riffs follow then vocals before a minute as it settles.These contrasts continue. Check out the ripping guitar solo after 4 minutes followed by bone crushing riffs. "My School" opens with laid back guitar as reserved vocals come in. A fuller sound 1 1/2 minutes in and it sounds so good. Very KINGS X-like before 3 minutes. Nice harmonies as well. It turns heavy 3 1/2 minutes in. Gorgeous guitar solo before 6 minutes then the thunder comes in. Nice. "Why Can't You Belive In Me" opens with heavy riffs but it levels out quickly so that we get this heavy undercurrent throughout. Love the heaviness 3 minutes in as it slows down. Blistering guitar solo 4 minutes in. "Kaptain Krude" is the heaviest yet ! The tempo picks up as they offer up an all out assault. Vocals and harmonies follow. Crushing track. "Someone For Everyone" opens with gentle guitar before the heaviness arrives quickly. When the vocals come in the heaviness eases up a little. Amazing sound from before 6 minutes to the end.

"Sea Of Tranquility" is almost SABBATH-like in it's gloomy heaviness.The tempo picks up a minute in and vocals 1 1/2 minutes in. Doom-like sound 3 1/2 minutes in as it slows right down.The tempo continues to shift. Themes are repeated. We get some samples from the first man on the moon event. Vocals are back after 5 1/2 minutes. "Kill Floor" opens with aggressive guitar as drums come in like a stampede then vocals. This is very heavy a times. Great chorus and tune ! "Pump Up The Space Suit" sounds like samples from Nassau as this relentless and powerful soundscape carries on.Vocals come in.Very heavy late. "Ranch On Mars (Reprise)" is an excellent song. The vocals are passionate as the guys sing in harmony "Galactic Cowboys" over and over.

"Speak To Me" is the 11 1/2 minute closer. Strummed guitar and reserved vocals open the proceedings. Nice harmonies too. Some power 2 minutes in as the vocals get rougher. Harmonica after 3 minutes. It settles before 6 minutes as they sing "Speak to me" over and over. Ripping guitar 8 1/2 minutes in. So it stops 10 minutes in then this very jazzy soundscape comes in with horns and piano. What !? Then a teacher gives out the lunch menue for the day. Haha !

This is a really good album but the harmonies wear a little thin after a while and i've tired quickly of some of the songs.

4 stars 1991 was supposed to be the year of the death of heavy metal thanks to some flannel-clad bands emerging from the Pacific Northwest. However, down in Texas, heavy metal was going down swinging. Enter Galactic Cowboys, the second brigade of faith rock soldiers from Katy, TX-based producer Sam Ta ... (read more)
