In any case, this starts off as a Cuban party, then turns into r and b/funk/pop/conga reality. The sounds are very smartly placed; the musical tone is generally happy and uplifting, but contains both remorse and at times even anger. They're agnostic musically, which means they will add touches of any musical style to move the narrative along. And it's clearly a melting pot of musicians and vocalists that drive the whole thing forward, so each song sounds a little different.
Galactic - Heart of Steel
It's a great collaborative and collective effort, without mis-steps along the way. Music is strong like bull.
CD Placement Rating: Portable CD Case.
