4 stars As i suppose before write this no previous reviews about this great artist (writer, singer, painter, priest...), he still be a bit unknow but this man was (he died of cancer in 1993) one of the best voices of 80´s and first 90's Geoff is most know for his work in U.K´s prog band TWELFTH NIGHT, also after leaving T.N. he started a solo career with other musicians, like Peter Nicholls, Clive Nolan (CASINO), Marc Catley, THE BOND, A GEOFF MANN BAND.... but maybe this album is his most complete solo work till he died the musical style can be described like a pop-prog or simple pop, most of the lyrics are about god or religion but in fact this question doesn´t matter at all, don´t expect boring slow songs with acoustic guitar singing how happy i´m with me or this kind of things... for me the best of Geoff MANN is what you fell with the voice, maybe not the best voice of the world, but very personal and honest and if we sit down and think about this is exactly what a song have to do: makes you feelas a curiosity several years after Geoff´s death a tribute album was recorded by a lot of friends and bands who knows Geoff or work with him, this album was called "Mannerisms" (A Celebration Of The Music Of Geoff MANN) and includes covers of Geoff songs performed by EH!, PALLAS, IQ, GALAHAD, Marc CATLEY & PALEY´S WATCH, FLAP, EDEN BURNING, PENDRAGON, JADIS, TWELFTH NIGHT and Clive NOLAN & Alan REED R.I.P.
