CD REVIEW: Nacho Sotomayor - La Roca
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Band: Nacho Sotomayor
Genre: New Age
CD Review:
Milan has a reputation for being a label that releases some of the strongest soundtracks and instrumental recordings. From new age to the new wave of movie composers, there's always something there for those that need their lives scored. Score a 10 for their latest. Nacho has come up with 10 various compositions that move from new age to electronica to skirting the depth of instrumental rock. Pluck out the lead guitar and 'The End' could be found on something between U2 and John Carpenter, with a stopover in Michael Jackson's dream. And for you fans who believe that music should move, your 'Movements' is ready for trial. It's 5.5 minutes of light buzzing across the screen, like the underscore of an 80s dirt biker movie, complete with helmets. While the love scene comes in with 'Island God Extended', a thumping refrain of the opening track, 'Island God'. You can feel the sun on your hair. The dancing piano-synth ripples the water, untouched by evil-god clouds. It's a tune for playing once you've gained something so all-important in your life. The camera swirls around and around you as you smile in the arms of someone beautiful.
