GALAXY is the last War album on which all seven original bandmembers played. Includes liner notes by Barry Alfonso.
War had been on cruise control for over two years due to internal and record company troubles when they resurfaced in the late '70s on MCA. This album was a pleasant surprise, even though it had more disco production than their funk fans wanted. But they got a hit out of the title track, and the better tracks retained the old War grit and eclectic fire. ~ Ron Wynn
