    Carnivale Electricos is a crunchy, rowdy recording with some beautiful twists and turns by its guest performers.

    It's not an understatement to call Carnivale Electricos one of the most fun, vibrant, and culturally-diverse albums in recent years.

    The Carnival spirit of wide-open possibility comes through.

    It's a raucous, vibrant, but well structured musical approach that brings along recognized artists (like current lead singer Corey Glover and local rap legends Mystikal and Mannie Fresh) for the ride.

    This is quite overtly a party record.

    The sense of unbridled joy on Carnivale Electricos is infectious. It defies you not to dance.

    The band hasn't figured out a way to reliably integrate all of the aspects of their sound in a compelling way, and so half the time, they seem content to just groove away for minutes at a clip without really developing anything stirring, be it a melody or a memorable solo.

    Music presented by the Galactic band on the "Carnivale Electricos" album is hard to pigeonhole in any particular style. We can find here bothMusic presented by the Galactic band on the "Carnivale Electricos" album is hard to pigeonhole in any particular style. We can find here both the experimental connection of New Orleans music in the "Attack", hip-hop inserts in the "Move Fast", funk hits like "Hey Na Na" and "Out In The Street" and the bluesy-rock "Voyage Ton Flag" . Each of the pieces is exuberant and ear-catching. Expand
