ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Without a doubt Carlos Soto proves that even with just one instrument and a little imagination a bassist is all it needs to rock, for an instrument that sometimes seems to be condemned to back up other musicians, Carlos Soto breaks out his double neck bass to the spotlight and makes no apologies for it . "Behind every guitar virtuoso, there's a bassist dying to shred" Carlos Soto Tribal Behavior delivers an intense power Bass instrumental that goes beyond today's music trends.

Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - E-Zine

I found some excellent passages in some songs...
Carlos Soto is a Los Angeles-based bassist, who plays out in a local band called "Tribus", which is unknown to me. For those who appreciate Carlos’ performance along with band, and feel like checking out his talent individually, this is a great opportunity then, seen that he has now a solo album out, whose title is ‘’Tribal Behavior’’. This one features twelve tracks, all composed and performed by himself on his bass guitar and bass synthesizer. As I understand it, Carlos doesn’t feel himself attached to an only musical trend on his compositions, so his music sounds mostly like a blend of tendencies, a fusion better said, where he often tries to give vent to all his knowledge on the musical sphere. Such work is noteworthy anyway, but it runs the risk of being misunderstood by most of the listeners, mostly those who hold a certain conservativeness, being hardly open to absorb something new or any daring project like this for instance. Though his music sounds too technical to my ears, quite a gifted musician is revealed overall. I had a dash of hardness to catch his musical proposal on the very first listening, seen that such a daring project is not found everyday; At all events I was a bit acquainted with his music after having another try. Musically I wouldn’t say that Carlos Soto’s music fits into my personal taste, however it is necessary to pay attention to it carefully because there’s some beauty involved in his art indeed, mostly when he decides to get rid of his bass synthesizer because the sound he generally creates on the conventional bass is splendid, besides reflecting most a music performed by a human, not a machine. I found some excellent passages in some songs, as on the song number four ‘’Lord of 1,000 Voltz’’ for instance. ‘’Tribal Behavior’’ is a highly recommended CD, not for all Progressive Rock fans, though...

Good music, but…
All in all this is a nice CD. CARLOS SOTO is a very good bass player, but I personally feel that the tracks on the CD vary too little. The tracks are too much alike, so it’s hard to separate one track from another. The sound and production are well done. The music has passages that are very interesting in parts. Tribal Behavior’’ is a highly recommended CD for people who’s really interested in bass music. I was in doubt if I should give this one a 3 star or a 4 star, but I landed on a 4 star, because of the good musicianship.
