Yes folks I know it’s been a while since I sat behind the keyboard and put out a music review, but not too long ago I was given the latest EP from Carlos Wilde.

Now for those who haven’t heard of Carlos Wilde, he is based in Spain and some years back released the rather amazing album “Cocktail” which I was so proud to release on my own Net label, since those days, Carlos went a little quiet, but recently he’s back with the new EP and producing some amazing tunes.

Not A Tortoise by Carlos Wilde – Music Review

So lets start the review with the first track on the EP.

Rock My World is a brilliant way to open an album, with Carlos’ distinctive vocals that once you hear, you will always know them, the track opens with a great beat and a superb use of stereo sound on the opening instrument, Carlos’ superb guitar work and vocals just have you tapping your toes throughout the track.

Am I Evil – Again Carlos opens up the track with superb introduction giving way to some gorgeous piano chords to go with his vocals, again Carlos shows that he’s not only talented musician, but also a talented lyric writer.

Living on a High – After the previous slow track, we move on to another Rock track in a style that only Carlos Wilde can do it in. You have to give Carlos credit for being able to produce catchy tracks that have you singing along to the lyrics.

My Way Home – All I have to say is listen to the lyrics of this track, it kinds reminds of those days when rock was moving in to an electrical sound, but that’s not a bad thing, nice vocal effects.

Love Me – The first thing I noticed was the echo on the vocals, which gives the track a slightly strange feel, but this works very well with the back beat and guitar work, giving the track a sort of live feel. Nicely done and produced.

Rock Ma World – Now I’ve known this track for a while, I was lucky to get this track on the Atom Sounds Compilation Vol 2 which I released some time back (which is still available on all good download sites 😉 ). The track is an earlier version of the first track with a different sound and feel, the only problem is deciding which version I prefer the best, which I can’t!

Overall Not A Tortoise is a superb album and one which I do highly recommend, so if you’re fed up of all of those chart tracks sounding the same, then open your ears and minds and check out Not A Tortoise by @Carlos_Wilde. You can find Carlos Wilde and download his music on Soundclick, Soundcloud, Reverbnation, Bandcamp.
