Manu puts together a tasty pop album with great grooves.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Manu Katche has played on such albums as Sting's "Soul Cages" and Peter Gabriel's "So" and "Us". This is Manu's first solo album and it features many outstanding players. Manu's french accent comes through and adds a different flavor to pop. For a long time only available as a Japanese Import, this rare album was an inspiration for Peter Gabriel's "Us" album and contains the original version of "Silence" which Peter put on his "Plus From Us" compilation. Track #5 "Go Getter" has an amazing groove building up to a bass solo played on harmonics by Pino Palladino which is more intense then I can describe, specially after David Rhodes comes in with acoustic guitar and Manu ripps back in with the groove with the bass harmonics still going. Check this album out, if you are a Sting or Peter Gabriel CD collector and think you have all of the albums they are on...think again, you need this album for that title!"
Manu , The hidden talent

"If you are a fan of Manu , this is a MUST HAVE. It is not a Zildjian endorsing CD. Manu plays in the pocket , and is backed up by master players such as Pino,Dominic,Simon, and David. The compositions are tasty and texturous. BUY THIS CD. TURN IT ON TO YOUR FRIENDS."
Minimal Exhibition of Drumming Skills

"I have several solo albums done by my favorite drummers, and while my main complaint about these albums is that they tend to over-emphasize the other talents of the drummers (usually singing), they at least contain one track where he/she shows off his/her talents that made him/her famous in the first place. Unfortunately, this CD does not contain even one track fitting this description. For example, Katche's playing on Julia Fordham's "Manhattan Skyline" alone shows more chops than this whole album. The songwriting and musicians on the CD are decent enough, but keep searching if you're looking for what makes Katche special."
