Let It Go is the sixth studio album from heavy metal band, Galactic Cowboys. It was released on June 20, 2000.

Notes

  • Several of the songs on this album were originally written by Monty Colvin for a solo project, but were used instead on this album, since they were appropriate for the Galactic Cowboys style.
  • The boy on the cover of this album is the son of Donovan White, who played guitar on the Crunchy album All Day Sucker.
  • The album has lead vocal contributions from all members: Ben Huggins, Wally Farkas and Monty Colvin.
  • Former drummer Alan Doss mixed the album, and contributed some backing vocals.[4]
  • King's X drummer Jerry Gaskill played most of the drums on the album.[5] Wally also did drums on some tracks.
  • The album has a rather strange intro proclaiming the band to have "a new sound for a new millennium" - hip hop. This leads us into a false sense of insecurity, before the opening riff of "T.I.M." plays.[5]
  • The final track "The Record Ends" is the longest track on any Galactic Cowboys album. However, most of the latter part of the track is a cacophonous collage of sounds and samples.
