Eric Matthews - It's Heavy In Here mp3 album
I bought this album shortly after it came out, admired its intentions (and some passing phrases) but never warmed to it. After a recent move, I brought it out again and played it, and my suspicions are now confirmed. Matthews is a very fragile talent indeed, and for all of his venturesome interest in a sort of pop/classical fusion (I don't mean that as a putdown in itself) he doesn't really have it in him to pull off the synthesis he imagines. Fortunately, Sean O'Hagan came along to do it right with the magnificent High Llamas.

I am hoping I have touched on some universal experiences on this album, in the lyrics where a sense of self awareness is running up against the reality of the technological technocracy collision course. Am I living this time in the most spiritually elevated way that I can? Should I implode, unplug, and run into a cave? It's where I'm from just like all ye stooges.

Eric Matthews was a homicide detective working for the Metropolitan Police Department . Despite his heavy injuries, Eric took the flashlight with him and managed to reach the door, which was still unlocked. He desperately yelled for his son while tumbling through the tunnel network outside the bathroom. Eventually he found a loose metal rod which he used as a crutch. This is a guy who doesn't really care anymore and he's kinda mailing it in. It's no mistake that he's brought into this case. It's by design and I think Jigsaw probably knew that this guy wouldn't want to get involved in the case and that's why he singled him out. When his name is on the ceiling, he's basically saying, "You are going to be my next subject. If my character was a little less selfish and a little less self-absorbed, he might have been smart enough to realize that he was being pulled into something.
The work of Eric Matthews was a direct reaction to the lo-fi recording practices so prevalent throughout the alternative music scene of the 1990s; while many of the decade's artists trafficked in a defiantly ragged, do-it-yourself aesthetic, Matthews' records grew out of orchestral theories and practices, and revelled in the stately elegance of warm harmonies and lush arrangements. In 1995, he issued his debut, It's Heavy in Here, an ornate, complex collection highlighting his emerging vocal and composing skills. The excellent Lateness of the Hour followed in 1997. It was his final album for some time, however. He finally returned in 2005 with a mini-LP titled Six Kinds of Passion Looking for an Exit and a full-length, Foundation Sounds, late the following year. The Imagination Stage followed in early 2008.
He followed it up by forming a working band, Matthews Southern Comfort (using the name of his first album, but without the apostrophe), releasing two more albums in short succession, Second Spring (1970 – UK and Later That Same Year (1970). The band went through various different line-ups and toured extensively for the next two years. They had one commercial success, a cover version of "Woodstock" by Joni Mitchell which was a number one hit single in the UK Singles Chart in October 1970
