"This album is great to have for someone who may be going through a time of reflection/decision or simply wishes to add new and deeper colors to a day thats maybe grown boring or predictable. When I first heard space music I was awed by how it draws you in for great periods of time, with seemingly no musical structure. But then I realized that it wasn't working most effectively as sheer music, but more as a muse for me to find meaningful rhythms within myself. Kevin Braheny is a master of this motivation, and Galaxies is undoubtedly Braheny in one of his finest hours. A true celebration into the bond between space and human consciousness."
A bit too commercial sounding

"The cover of this cd looked very promising, but didn't quite deliver in the music. Occasionally I will put it in rotation with other space music cd's to break the monotony of too much of my favorite deep space music, just to keep me on my toes. Yes, to me this cd has one foot just barely on the cheesy side. However, it is not at all boring. It is entertaining, and I like Kevin Braheny, but I think he does a little better when he collaborates with artists such as Tim Clark or Steve Roach. We all have our tastes, however, this cd is just a bit commercial sounding for me. It has some deep space moments, but leans more toward a slightly science fiction atmosphere, lightly sprinkled with a fairy tale feel. The music is nice, but I don't think the synthesizers used on this cd are necessarily cutting edge. Either that or he just isn't experimenting enough with various sounds. I've heard these angelic voices before. I've heard way too many similar effects as found here. Give me something that veers off the glorious, heavenly path but still remains mysterious and beautiful. A large order perhaps, but as an extreme space music buff, I can't help but continue to raise my standards as I am exposed to artists who do venture beyond what has already been done. But I still gave this cd three stars, and really that isn't bad at all."
Wonderful stimulus to the imagination.

"Actually, I like and agree with both of the prior reviews. I've had this for a number of years, like it a lot, though, yeah, it is a tad commercial. While listening to it, I think of the novel "Starmaker" the author of which escapes me at this point, but I think it's Olaf Stabledon. Just ponder interstellar, let alone intergalactic space. Then maybe I'll pull out a book or magazine with a color photo of, say, the Sombrero galaxy, or even neighbor Andromeda, and contemplate their trillion or so stars...or the atoms of my body which were one day part of a star....There's a slight resemblance to Mike Oldfield too, though my apologies to those who either love or hate Oldfield. I just hear most of his music as kind of pointless but relaxing and mentally stimulating at the same time.Well, in a nutshell, I'm delighted, though not surprised, that Amazon.com offers this. And I'll have to order some more of Braheny's music now. I hope I enjoy it as much."
