“Dream Child” is a fine blend of interesting and deep
compositions within great songs. The album took 15 months to
complete with Mattsson taking great care to arrange and record
very precisely with many ideas being reworked during this
process to bring you the album you hear today.
The material on “Dream Child” is better structured and more
accessible than before and with the inclusion of strings and
woodwinds (courtesy of The Astral Orchestra) along with better
recording and mixing techniques all show how Mattsson applies
the musical influences he has gathered since day one making
Mattsson in 2008 a unique experience.
his new vocalist, Mattsson proudly states, “Adrienn Antal is
the best singer I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
She has a great voice, is very musical and we click together
extremely well. Adrienn Antal is the star of this album.
Without her the songs would not have come to life in the way
they have, and in my view the main quality boost comes from
Adrienn Antal”. Adding further depth to the vocal arrangements
are the inclusion of vocals from Björn Lodin (Baltimoore) who
will be a name familiar to fans of numerous albums from Lars
over the years.
