"Rarezas" will probably be the last release of Mägo De Oz via the label Locomotive Records (and actually I'm even not sure that the band will ever recognize it as an official release). This double CDs, is a compilation of unreleased tracks, singles (etc). This is above all something for the ones who want everything by Mägo De Oz… the others, who already have all their albums, will not find anything essential in this release.
"Rarezas" is a new compilation of the Spanish Folk Heavy band. Released by their ex label Locomotive Records, this double album is composed of a lot of unreleased songs. You'll be able to find singles like "El Turno De La Rosa", live songs ("Molinos De Viento", "Finisterra"…), alternative versions of hits of the band (Metal version of "Ancha Es Castilla"…), a cover of "Whole Lotta Love" and even a song with "Doro Pesch ("Man On The Silver Moutain"). Those songs are good no doubt, first because it's not some bad-recorded demo versions and well anyway (as always with Magö De Oz) it's extremely hard to blame the performance of the Spanish band here. It's really nice to listen to it, but yes on the other hand it's not so essential too.
So, what's the interest of this compilation? Well, actually maybe that it will be something for the diehard fans who want everything by their favourite band, but on the other hand, I'm sorry but it smells a bit like a CD released by an "ex-label" to win only some money through a band which is not featured anymore in its line up, and of course that's not a good thing. If it's not possible to blame the quality of the songs which are featured on this release (some are really cool alternative and fresh versions of Mägo De Oz's hits really), I don't know, I don't really see the real interest of this release.
"Rarezas" is a good compilation with a lot of good new versions of classics of the band but it's not a must too. If you're a fan and cannot wait "Gaia III", "Rarezas" can be a good way to wait it, but definitely, this is not something that you must have for sure in your discography.
