4 stars If you love Iron Maiden or Magma, you should not listen to this work of Manning, let alone comment. Charlestown is a delightful 35-minute suite that runs lyrically and musically through various passages sung and instrumental, well accompanied by flutes, acoustic guitars and cello among others. A bold work, but which achieves the goal of entertaining anyone looking for this type of music created. Caliban and Ariel is a delicate piece, smooth and direct. The Man in the Mirror is an upbeat song that is about mood swings, and to move on and not lose heart. The music accompanies those feelings with solid acoustic guitars, sax and violin. Clocks is another soft song based on guitar and flute, and a good synthesizer orchestration. T.I.c. has an obvious touch of Rhythm and Blues and Finale is just a good instrumental.
