5 stars "Lamentations" completely and immediately has touched me musically. It is definitely one of my "desert island" cd's.

Rikard Sjoblum, is a wonderfully talented artist, with the rare ability to make his voice/singing style an instrument in the music. The music displays what can only be the artists vast appreciation of musical styles; there are odes to jazz, pop, disco, classical, rock, heavy metal, and even tango - which I didn't even know I could like until I heard it woven into his music. Lest I forget blues, oh, blues, "Peace at Mind" is so rich with blues and Rikard sings that style so well, it actually makes my soul ache. "Bringing Down the Walls" showcases one thing that Rikard does so well, and that is to paint a picture of a moment, a feeling, a state of mind and pull you in with him emotionally. The whole cd does this to one degree or another, without ever feeling heavy and weighty.

A treasure for sure.
