Mattsson has again taken musical creations and re-recorded them.

Now some may write this up to Lars Eric Mattsson being overly self-indulgent – but that would be a mistake! Yes, 'Let Me Rock You (1984-87)' is the sequel to 'Hot & Able 1983-85' (which featured earlier compositions from this musical mastermind!) but this time around, most of what we hear is from the 'Eternity' years.

Mattsson has again taken musical creations and re-recorded them, slightly changing their complexion, but keeping their original essence. As it stands 'Let Me...' is just that – a Rock album! It features sixteen musical expressions that showcase why they say that Mattsson is one of the top guitarists performing today. Again, his vocal stylings and delivery are also razor sharp and his sense of "song-ability" is cutting edge with his production work first-rate as ever!

Now if you were fortunate enough to hear 'Eternity', a lot of these numbers will be familiar with you – but I would hazard to say that you haven't heard them laid down quite like this; sixteen tracks that come out hard, full of energy with guitar riffs that just won't quit. Remember, he is asking a simple question – "Let Me Rock You" – or I should say asking your permission! Let's give it to him; even though this collection is from a back catalogue, it is one with a brand new face!

So there is one question; knowing that 'Let Me...' is a sequel – is it worth getting? Absolutely is the answer! Actually another question surfaces, while I'm at it – why is Mattsson doing this type of project? Well, that's the kicker isn't it? I really don't know, and I don't have any type of inside track as to why, but what I do know is that Lars Eric Mattsson is generally light years ahead of almost everyone else, and he may be preparing us for something completely out of his known musical world. Maybe this is his way of closing a chapter and preparing another volume? It will be very interesting in hearing what he has in store!

In the mean time, let's say yes to his 'Let Me Rock You' and enjoy the ride!
