'Epicentre' is simply a stand-out collection from a musical mastermind.

One should not enter into the "Epicentre" lightly! From the outset, it is more than evident that Lars Eric Mattsson has delivered his Masterstroke.

Marking his twenty-third release, 'Epicentre' is a musical expression that touches upon greatness! There is an expansive musical spectrum that is contained in the eighteen tracks here with intricate guitar workings that envelope us, creating a distinct moodiness. Lars has also treaded on new ground. With the exception of drums, this album has been written, arranged, performed, and produced by Lars himself! The man has even provided the vocals!! First time singing; Lars' voice is emotional and delivers each song like it is his last. His is a textured, whiskey soaked delivery, hovering around the middle ranges. A perfect companion to his emotionally driven guitar stylings.

Christer Jansson keeps 'Epicentre' grounded with his driving percussion, allowing Lars to work us through his melodic, but complicated excursions. A complete Work, 'Epicentre' is one of compassion. Each composition is one that has been written and created with conviction, and is not self indulgent.

Considered to be one of the best guitarists in the world, Mr. Mattsson is also a master of classically tinged modern rock forms. A multi-instrumentalist; Lars continues to amaze with his performances on keyboards and bass! There is so much on 'Epicentre' – a truly remarkable Work – with all of Lars' trademark signatures and then some! The musical currents run deep and true! Although I would not approach this Work with a list of "stand-out" tracks, there are some musical passages that weigh in more than others. 'Cinnamon' is one such passage. Apparently one of the first songs Lars recorded, this is an example of what makes "Epicentre" such a personal album. Listen for the change in his voice on this one! As mentioned, the whole album flows so effortlessly, and credit has to be given as to where the instrumentals are placed. 'South Of The Border' and 'Andalucia' could really have not been placed anywhere else! Again, just evidence of the genius of this Artist. Carrying on with the emotional side of Lars' new found voice, pieces such as 'I Don't Know' and 'Cold Inside' are great examples of this, blending his music and voice splendidly! You see, Lars is still not comfortable with his vocal powers, however he doesn't need to each and every vocal he gives us is just right! Another accolade for this very sensitive Artist! Pushing through this new plateau, Lars has, indeed, found his voice, and one this scribe humbly suggests that you should too!

'Epicentre' is simply a stand-out collection from a musical mastermind!
