Album Review

Houston's Galactic Cowboys appear to be flying on auto-pilot for much of 1998's At the End of the Day, making this album interesting to long-time fans only. The raging "Nothing to Say" is probably the record's only exceptional track, and though the seven-song "Machine Fish Suite" has its bright moments ("Mr. Magnet," "Never Understand"), it is generally unspectacular. The record also includes departing founding member and drummer Alan Doss taking his first lead vocal on the gloomy "Through," and the band closes with the eerie instrumental title track "Outer Space."

Customer Reviews

They got rivered on the all-in play

This was the Galactic Cowboys' last-shot alpha strike. They had been promised the moon in 1991-1993 by Geffen, only to get dropped for grunge. A tour supporting Dream Theater and King's X generated what would eventually be GC's entire fanbase. Metal Blade did a little better promoting them, but a tiny label can only make a tiny difference. After a metal album and an alt/metal album, GC mixed in some prog here and this was their final push. Every track through 12 is at least decent, and some are fantastic. (NTS, Ants, Sign, Horizons, Magnet, Ranch, Shine). GC left it all on the field on this one, but unfortunately, it wasn't enough. Buy this and marvel at what should have been...

First Galactic Cowboys CD I ever owned.

Don't listen to the main review that says this ablum is only of interest to long time fans because this is the CD that got me into the Cowboys in the first place. Good melodic, bluesy alterna-metal with Beatlesque vocal harmonies, thought-provoking spiritual lyrics, solid songwriting, and chord-based guitar parts. (The exception is "Young Man's Dream" which is more riff based - and my personal favorite.) Machine Fish is a better album, but this one is up there with The Horse that Bud Bought.

An amazing band

Apparently the review doesn't listen to the albums, or just doesn't like good rock. The two best tracks on this album are Just Like Me and The Shape. Those two songs are more than worth owning.


Formed: 1989

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Bassist Monty Colvin and drummer Alan Doss first played together in Houston in a band called the Awful Truth. When it split up, Colvin and Doss recruited vocalist Ben Huggins and guitarist Dane Sonnier to form Galactic Cowboys. Signed soon after by DGC, the metallic rock combo released a self-titled debut in 1991 and Space in Your Face two years later. Following the release of Space in Your Face, the group was dropped by DGC and Wally Farkas replaced Sonnier (who formed the Sonnier Brothers Band)....
