Just plain neat

""What, no bass?" you might say. I seriously doubt that you'll care, though.

Even live, with no capacity to overdub and do all the cool vocal harmonies that you'll find here, The Spinanes made it work (and then some). The sheer melodic exuberance of these songs -- not to mention Gates's and Plouf's refusal to neglect the low end despite the stripped-down instrumentation -- speaks for itself. There's just something about this album that makes it impossible for me to tire of it, despite many years of pulling it out on a semi-regular basis.

_Manos_ appears destined to be a lost classic. Sometimes life isn't fair to those who have put this much effort into crafting something catchy and wonderful and unique. That doesn't mean you need to miss out."

"The reviewers for this pop masterpiece do not lie. I bought this album when it came out on vinyl on a lark, having not heard of the group. From the start I was blown away. What a great discovery. I went on to buy their follow-up releases and as great as they are (check them out) Manos has that simple, edgy, sound I find so attractive. If you like well crafted, well executed and sung power pop (Elvis Costello, Liz Phair, etc.) you will love this almost unknown jem. Too bad they are no more."
