A big change in Rata Blanca's sound,
This review is from: Clasicos Del Rock En Espanol (Audio CD)
In fact this album was originally released in Argentina as "Rata Blanca VII"in 1997.
Once again the band decided to change vocalist and an unknown singer (Gabriel Marian) was the chosen one. His style is rather different than the three previous singers, he is closer to Jon Bon Jovi, rather than Ian Gillan. The style of the band also changed, songs like "La historia de un muchacho" or "Viejo amigo" are very strange tunes, and "Anarquia" and "Mr Cosmico" sound like Ozzy's "Ozzmosis". However, the album (although is not the best of the band)has some delightful moments, specially in songs like "Madame X" that reminds Rata's first album.
To sum up, if you are a Rata's fan, you should buy the record and know a different side of the band. But if you had never heard Rata Blanca before I suggest you must start with their two first records: "Rata Blanca" (1988)and "Magos, espadas y rosas" (1990)that will blow up your mind!!!
