Following the theme of 2003's live double "Skeletons In The Closet", Gamma Ray visit the less familiar parts of their back catalogue once more. This puzzling mini album is not to be confused with the live DVD of the same name Of the two "Skeletons & Majesties", the DVD is put together far more sensibly, and is definitely worth checking out. This oddity, however, is a whole different matter.

What we have here is... Re-recorded versions of two songs from the band's earlier stages ("Brothers" and "Hold Your Ground") - two of their weaker ones, to be honest. Then we have a couple of acoustic recordings: "Rebellion In Dreamland" works quite well acoustically (I still prefer the original, though), but in sharp contrast, "Send Me A Sign" sounds like a parody of the album version. "Wannabees" is a bonus track from the "To The Metal!" album; put simply, it is a terrible song and is not even funny, so it only has curiosity value. Finally, we have an extended version of the aforementioned "Brothers" (er, why?) and an instrumental "karaoke" version of "Rebellion". Oh, and a hidden track. But even that one isn't particularly funny.

A completely unnecessary release that is unlikely to satisfy even the most devoted fan. Get the DVD instead - it has all the same songs as this one (minus "Wannabees"), plus a whole lot more, and is of superior value for money. Forget this.

I love this CD, but in part that is just because it is different.

If you do not know Gamma Ray do not start here (go for Land of The Free). The version of Rebellion in Dreamland is good but very different to what you may expect. The chaps have re-worked some songs to give a different sound and done a good job on them. Read the sleeve notes on the back and you will know what to expect.

If you love the Rays then give it a go as on the second play you will be singing along.

Interesting, but not essential, EP 7 May 2011
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Now this is an odd little "mini-album" from German power metal legends Gamma Ray. Skeletons & Majesties is an EP with some new material and some interesting takes on some Gamma Ray classics. Here's what you get:

1. Hold Your Ground - This is a new version of the Heading For Tomorrow song.
2. Brothers - This is a new version of the Insanity and Genius song.
3. Send Me a Sign - This is an acoustic version of the Powerplant song.
4. Rebellion in Dreamland - This is an acoustic version of the Land of the Free song.
5. Wannabees - This is a fairly rare b-side that is available on CD for the first time here.
6. Brothers (extended version) - This version is about a minute longer than the regular version.
7. Rebellion in Dreamland (karaoke version) - This is intended to be used in a contest the band is currently running. The terms "Gamma Ray" and "karaoke" never came together in my mind, but this is a neat idea.

Some of these songs are fairly interesting, but for the most part this EP just doesn't seem all that necessary. I don't see the point of the remakes of "Hold Your Ground" and "Brothers" and I'll probably never listen to the last two tracks again. That leaves "Wannabees," which isn't that great a song, and the acoustic tracks, which are quite good. In the end, if you're a die-hard Gamma Ray fan, you'll probably feel compelled to get this one (and even then it's not worth getting excited about). Casual fans should steer clear and wait for the next studio album.
Perfect! 14 July 2013
