2 stars A compilation album from this Spanish prog metal band. A band which has so far failed to impress me.

The music I have heard so far from this band is in the party metal genre. On this album, named after a city/town where I spent some of the best years of my life in, they attacks old songs with a mix of contempt and sarcasm. An old Elvis Presley classic is translated into Spanish and then cannibalised and vandalised. The old evergreen Somewhere Over the Rainbow also gets the Mago De Oz treatment. Actually, this version is good and one of the best songs on this compilation album. There are other songs here which is not too bad. That includes some old Spanish evergreens from the 1930s and the band deserve credit for lifting these songs up to the surface again.

But my overall impression is that this is only a decent album & just for their fans. I do not see much value in this compilation album at all. Hence my score.
