The Manhattans-"Even Now"

"I have been a Manhattans' Fan for about 24 years, so I feel I know them and their music. I love the new CD, because it's just classic Manhattans style. Gerald's smooth lead vocals always sends you into a trance. My favorite on the CD is "Turn Out The Stars". The background vocals and that horn has a beautiful smooth jazz feel.I just put the CD player on repeat, and listen to it over and over again. I also like "Just Love Me Right", "Nites Like This", the title tune, "Even Now", "How Much More?", and "I Got It Right". You will not be disappointed.

Turn Out the Stars is Amazing!

"I heard a special on XM Radio's Soul Street channel a few days ago, and Gerald & Blue of the Manhattans dropped by to talk with the DJ. The discussion eventually came around to this album, and they played "Turn Out the Stars", which I actually had not heard until then. I listened to it in complete awe, it is truly an amazing performance by one of the great classic soul groups. "Turn Out the Stars" alone is worth the price of the disc, which I hurried out and bought later the same day. I can't stop playing it. This tune is a monster! Gerald's soulful, emotion-charged vocals stand out on this cut above all the others.
All I can say is get this disc and you'll be as awed as I was on this particular cut."
