Walde, the new overseas rock star at the top of Northern Europe's hit parades, has always avoided public performances - 2 million records already sold.

Kim Wilde, superb young, very young, sweet but determined mask, very determined - rockettes are like that - she comes from the United Kingdom where she already lives in the upper quarters of the charts: she is in the top five places, as in the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark. He studied at the art college and his first album "Kids in America" ​​sold two million copies; not without merit of his genealogy, given that Kim is the daughter of art, since his father, Marty Wilde, was a good rocker in the 50s and that his brother Rickie plays keyboards and guitar in the side band.
So a real musical workshop in the family that seems to work in perfect harmony and is presented with the first LP released by EMI (KIM WILDE 3C 064 64438), where there is a fresh and ventilated sound that is the most functional you can imagine for that temperament, for that voice.
A snappy voice, a shot that effortlessly holds up a long-playing, without drawing breath, without ballads or confidential pauses: always on the edge of a lively but not forced pace, which does not oppress. The result is a home-made program - the songs are all from the father or brother - well articulated, at a good level (perhaps better the second side), dominated by Kim's subtle - a bit monotonous tone - which, for its part, it is sparkling, and direct, without a shadow of sophistication and therefore - after all - nice.
Very danceable and modern, the collection makes you want to get to know this energetic overseas rock star up close, which has never performed live so far: it is getting ready and is ready soon, say its producers. So a movie of hers is coming.
