"Rarities" is a compilation album of rare and unreleased material by the British rock band Atomic Rooster. As it is structured this compilation could be an album of Atomic Rooster. And no one could say that is not true!!! Demos, Radio ad, rare songs... The sound is good... John Du Cann has done a nice job. The songs/ tracks are generally good. Only that this compilation is heavy and unattractive. Because of this is the fact that there is no true Heavy Metal or Hard Rock. The music is only a Rock with Hard sound and heavy atmospheres. Good songs are: "Death Walks Behind You" (live studio version from 1981/ unreleased), "Do You Know Who’s Looking for You?" (demo version, 1980), "Don’t Lose Your Mind" (demo version, 1980), "End Of The Day" (demo version, 1981), "Lost In Space" (demo version, 1980), "Play It Again" (demo version, 1981) and "I Can’t Take No More" (live at the Marquee, 1980). These songs are little Heavy Metal jewelry. But, for the rest, the other tracks fail to excite me like they should.

This compilation is good, because is a compilation of rare demos, unreleased tracks, live tracks and radio ad. But, sincerely, it's nothing important. Unless you're a die-hard fan of atomic rooster.
