New Orleans is a city defined by its unique and colorful history. It's for that reason that most tend to view the place as something of a musical museum while ignoring the town's vibrant and innovative new music. In New Orleans, the hip-hop at the heart of today's culture emerged from an energetic, highly eroticized and occasionally gender-bending music called "bounce". ...

The title of this album gives you a clue as to it's slightly different direction compared to something like "Ruckus" - but it's still filled with quality tracks. The New Orleans 'carnivale' spirit and passion is still there, and the 'electricos' element keeps things fresh and interested. If you like Galactic, you'll like this - if you're new to the band, I'd suggest starting with "Ruckus", then come back to this one!

It's "Fat Tuesday" and Galactic Is Back! 21 Feb. 2012
By John Terry - Published on
Verified Purchase
Formed 18 years ago, Galactic is New Orleans' number one party band and an unabashed fan of the city's music and culture. Some older fans aren't happy with the band straying a bit from their funk sound and ditching a vocalist in favor of collaborators representing the best the city has to offer. "From The Corner To The Block" to "Carnivale Electricos" proves that the band is not willing to rest on their laurels and continues to mine new territory and grow and change. Some people don't like change. I become a bigger fan with each and every album. "Carnivale Electricos" is the band's first album dedicated to the carnival phenomenon that grips the streets of Rio De Janeiro and New Orleans. Guests on the record include the original vocalist for "Carnivale Time", Al "Carnival Time" Johnson, Mardi Gras Indian War Chief Juan Pardo, Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Cyril and Ivan Neville and David Shaw of The Revivalists, just to name a few. The album smokes, the musicians are killer, grab yourself one and crank it up!

Carnivale Electricose is a great addition to the Galactic collection any true fan has. This album embodies all characteristics of the distinctive style Galactic encompasses. It combines their traditional, funky, New Orleans sound with the more alternative sound that can be found on their previous album, From The Corner To The Block. Each guest artist, such as Cyril AND Ivan Neville, Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, etc., have brought their own elements and techniques, making a sound that lives up to Galactic's unique style. Whether you are jammin' in the car or out on the town, this album is a must have!!

A Musical Tour 7 Feb. 2013
By JB - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album is basically a musical tour of New Orleans; a survey of prominent musical styles from the city, with electronic beats woven in throughout. It opens with Mardi Gras Indans and closes with a Galactic-only instrumental, in between is a series of guests, each bringing something wildly different to the table. There's a zydeco element, a funky Neville brothers bit, and some Brazilian dance beats. Mystikal is back to back with a genuine New Orleans high school marching band (where else would that happen?). Given hotel rates around Mardi Gras time, it's a lot cheaper to buy this album than see this stuff in person. Of course, the album doesn't compare. But it's a really entertaining listen nonetheless.

The Usual Galactic Thrillride 9 Feb. 2014
By Artemis825 - Published on
Verified Purchase
On any given Galactic album, I seem to LOVE 75% of the songs and routinely skip the other 25%. Which still makes any Galactic album well worth the price, because the songs I love stay in my playlist for years. The songs that I love are a riotous, joyful celebration of the music and spirit of New Orleans. "Ash Wednesday Sunrise" is a wonderful exploration of post-carnival soulfulness. "Karate" layers a marching band into the already full and deep complexity of Galactic's sound. "Move Fast" is a fast-spitting rap by Mystikal with a deep Galactic groove. Galactic is one of those rare groups for which I become a missionary, always playing it for friends and trying to bring in new converts.

As always, Galactic delivers! 13 April 2012
By Robert - Published on
Verified Purchase
Yet another string studio album from Galactic. This time they are fusing their patented New Orleans Funk with the sounds of Brasil, and it is kick-ass! Simultaneously mixing New Orleans' Mardi Gras musical traditions and sound with the sound and tradition of Carnival, the music on this album is a great listen and very dance-able. I saw Galactic live shortly after buying this album and it was one of the best Galactic shows I've ever seen! As usual, kick-ass songs created in the studio are only that much better and give more energy when performed live. Galactic still has it!!!
