3 stars Don't be fooled by the title

This complilation of songs from 1989 - 99 period represents well the sound of MEDINA AZAHARA. Despite the title most songs have real power and passion. Both strong (distinctive voice of Manuel Martinez, very good singer indeed, energetic performance, Arabian influences here and there) and weaker (the same verse-horus formula of all songs, lack of variety in rhythm section playing) parts of the band's music are reflected here.

Standout tracks for me are ''La Guitarra'' and ''El Destino'' (both from ''...En Al-Hakim'', 1989, one of their best studio albums) with excellent flamenco guitar parts played by Vicente Amigo, one of the most popular guitarists in Spain. Many bands mixed rock and flamenco, but I dare to say this combination is perfect and unique in two mentioned songs.

Solid compilation, very good starting point if you are unfamiliar with MEDINA AZAHARA. And ..., if rock is not your only passion, very good reason to check out solo works of Vicente Amigo - I remember his concert in Moscow, it was a fantastic event!
