Mattias IA Eklundh is a true breath of fresh air in the Vai/Satch dominated genre of instrumental guitar. The music spans a wide scope from frank zappa insanity to gypsy jazz noddling to screaming soaring hard rock excess. Mattias uses unbelievable high harmonics 27th fretted notes and even vibrators to add texture to his not unlike Vai guitar style.
Becareful not to confuse him as a Vai clone, Mattias is totally unique and provides fists full of crazy humour a la zappa.
If your looking for the next true guitar hero look no further, but guitarists be warned, you might not wish to pick up your guitar for a while after hearing him.

From the very start, it is apparent that this is a truly Whimsical Album! The opener "Apparatus" makes use of some, ahem, sound affects made by a certain vibrating object that women like to use... Yeah anyway there is something in here for almost any guitar fan, we got rock, heavy Metal, Gypsy Jazz, Ballads and just down right crazy weird stuff. Mattias Has extraordinary facility on the guitar, even more extraordinary when you consider he uses no manufactured effects on his guitar. Every style played on the album is done masterfully and even makes use of baked bean cans for percussion!! He even recorded the whole thing in his bathroom! Dont be put off by this though, the sound quality is great and the song writing superb! Plus its worth your money as you get an impressive 22 tracks to wade through, mostly instrumental. If your a fan of Zappa or Vai I would recommend this to you, or anyone who loves guitar and wants to hear the boundaries pushed a little.

From the outset, this album lives up to its name, at no point does this become boring.
Mattias Ia Eklundh is one of the best guitarists to ever pick up a guitar, and this album is really a collection of very long but excellent guitar solos.
If you like Vai, then you will probably like this album, after all, Guitarist magazine has described Eklundh as "Faster than Malmsteen and better than Vai."

This album really is amazing, this guy is awsome, his creativity is really refreshing! However this is an album that may be more tempting for the guitarist as people who dont play the instrument may not appreciate the skill behind the stuff he plays. Best tracks for me are "when sam played it again..." and "lisa's passion for heavy metal". however the track breath provides 10mins break from mad shred and weird sound effects. A great album, check out the other album freak guitar the road less travelled also.
