4 stars A very underrated band indeed they are here in PA, well Mago de Oz are not progressive at all they are folk metal band with celtic sounds but wow some instruments, rythms, melodies and structures are totally prog.

First at all this little album is not a LP is an EP because it contains just 5 songs, actually here in PA some albums of them are missing . This band is amazing and i dont care if in Spain they are overrated like a comercial band who cares about the reputation the music is superb.

Ok now the songs:

1. We have El Lago (The lake) this song opens with an atmospheric sound in the keyboards after this the guitar join to it and then the vocals this song is very good and I like it, BTW the vocals here in every song are powerful by Jose.

2. Now a rocky taste with T´esnucare Contra´l Bide with this song mago is just rocking there are not any progressive here but is a good song.

3. El Hijo del Blues (The Son of Blues) is a mix between rock n roll and blues structure the lyrics are silly but is very addictive to listen it another good song (not prog)

4. Gerdendula is a cover of Jethro tull I dont know exactly but is very relax to listen this short song. The acoutic guitar mixed with the violin and flutes is incredible. A good folk song indeed.

5. And for the ending of this EP we have the title track Mago de Oz (Wizard of Oz) yes this song is their epic in this EP (10.00) starting with some acoustic chords and evolving througth all the song the vocals are amazing even the lyrics are beautiful. The violin puts on it a great taste of folk music and the celtic sounds are presents here, also the prog elements are here!.

Maybe this short EP could be your enter door to this amazing band indeed, dont listen the critics about them just try their music and judge for yourself. Not prog at all but an amazing EP After this you should to try Jesus de chamberi because every album is a worth listening until their latest album and their peak album in 2003. Just try it! Rock on´
