Editorial Reviews

With unbridled excitement, we bring you The Tallest Man on Earth's second LP, The Wild Hunt. It is all here: The words. The voice. The melodies. Ten perfect songs. The Wild Hunt picks up where 2008's Shallow Grave left off, with Matsson doing what he does best. It is unmistakably The Tallest Man on Earth, from the urgent strums of "You're Going Back" and the sweet melodies of "Love is All," to the playful lyricism of live favorite "King of Spain" and the subtle hook on "Burden of Tomorrow."

I cringe whenever the critics label an up and coming musician "the next Dylan". However benevolent one's intentions may be, comparing any up and coming performer to Dylan is usually the kiss of death for the the performer. When critics play "Dylan card", it creates an impossibly high set of expectations and usually results in sort of critical backlash that can kill the career of an aspiring artist. There is only one Bob Dylan and Dylan himself has rarely lived up to the heroic expectations of his fans and followers. Over the years, "the next Dylan" has been used on preformers as P.F. Sloan, Barry McGuire, Bob Lind, Peter Mulvey & Lloyd Cole and look what it did for their careers. Dylan's earliest peers like Dave Van Ronk and Phil Ochs both played out their careers living in the shadow of Bob Dylan. Bruce Springsteen was about the only survivor of "the next Dylan" tag and as it turned out, Springsteen turned out to be something very different from Robert Zimmerman. The Tallest Man on Earth is Latest entry to the "next Dylan" sweepstakes and his abundant musical talent makes it even harder to sidestep use of the Dylan analogy.

On his second full album the Tallest Man on Earth (Swedish folk singer Kristian Mattson) is moving out from under Dylan's long shadow to craft his own body of work that stands both aside and apart from Dylan's. Dylan was and still is. capable of doing a lot with his reedy and nasal voice, and by my ear Mattson's voice has a similar expressive and passionate quality. But the Tallest Man enjoys at least full octave advantage over Mr. Zimmerman in his vocal range. Mattson's guitar playing is ragged, strident and far more self assured than Dylan even at that height of his early coffeehouse days when Dylan was absorbing the complex finger picking styles of Bleeker St.

One of the best albums I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. With that said, he's not for everyone (as my friends and family like to continuously remind me) - but with a brief concentration on his story, you may begin to see how his voice ties with the poetics of his lyrics, so perfectly. I wouldn't have it any other way! He sings about friendship, lost love, longing love, angry love, hopeful love, and a whole lot of subjects that can hit close to home. It's an album full of metaphors, some of which I still trouble myself over deciphering, but that is part of the enjoyment. A new story unfolds each time I listen to a song.. a new interpretation, or a more emphasized meaning. I love his raw, slightly high-pitched, raspy voice, and I look forward to all of his future releases - he will not disappoint, I'm certain. He's too full of emotion to lose touch of the music he creates. One man, a guitar.. that's all you really need to feel the warm fuzzies.

I've been a fan for about a year now, thankfully discovered his music (not very mainstream) from a friend and had the opportunity to see him live. It's a shame this artist isn't more well-known. In any case, this album is fantastic, exactly what I was expecting, and slightly more polished than his first album. Also the piano sneaks in here on the last track, which is a departure from his one-man-band guitarist lineup, and it's a beauty. Buy this album, you won't be disappointed, and check out his earlier stuff too if you're not familiar.

I'm not sure why it took me so long to discover this beautiful man. He has a very unique, scratchy but likeable voice, and plays very well. Brilliant lyrics and melodies. <3 I missed his concert a month ago and can only pray he'll come back soon.

I bought this at the same time as There's No Leaving Now, so I kind of have an equal like for both. "Kids on the Run" really moves me for some reason, and the rest are great too.

It's become a standard that I listen to regularly while driving. Totally unique, reminds me of stuff I listened to years ago. Prepare to be...amused? Surprised? Amazed? Listen to a sample first, but it's worth the chance if you like folksy, independent, simple, unusual stuff.

If there was any doubt that the Tallest Man on Earth is an incredibly talented folk musician, this album will surely smash those doubts. This album ranges from upbeat make-you-wanna dance tracks to earthy hymns that float on the air and bring beauty to the ears. This album is much tighter than his first (although Shallow Grave is nothing to scoff at by any means). I highly recommend this album to the curious listener as well as Tallest Man's first album Shallow Grave.

I'm still partial to Shallow Graves, but I really like this album. My only complaint is that they didn't cut the hole big enough for me to put on the spindle so I had to fix that. I intend to buy his most recent album as well. DEFINITELY The Tallest Man on Earth still. Nothing's changed there!

I had never heard of The Tallest Man on Earth before purchasing this album. The songs on the album speak volumes to me and have reconnected me with my love for music briefly lost. Highly recommended.
