The audio-only portion of BIG & RICH'S SUPER GALACTIC FAN PACK is a collection of remixes, alternate versions, outtakes, and unreleased tracks that were not included on the duo's hugely successful debut, HORSE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR. Since Big & Rich are known for their eclecticism and humor, the disc's grab-bag quality is completely in sync with the duo's modus operandi. Every track is a highlight, particularly the genre-defying dance mix of "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" and the sidesplitting acoustic version of "Drinkin' 'Bout You," which sounds as if it might actually have been recorded under the influence of copious amounts of alcohol. The decidedly surreal "The Bob Song," which features monkey sounds and references to dressing up as a chicken, is too weird even for the band's debut. Part Ben Colder, part Frank Zappa, BIG & RICH'S SUPER GALACTIC FAN PACK explores the outer limits of one of country music's most intriguing acts.
