CD REVIEW: George E. Manosis – “Love and Other Disasters”
By Stacey Board - 12/15/2002 - 06:32 PM EST

Artist: George Manosis
Album: “Love and Other Disasters”
CD Review: This CD is recommended as new discovery for any fan of Jimmy Buffet. It's straight ahead story telling with mellow smooth voice and arrangements, and as you can guess by the title, a good sprinkling of humor throughout.

I think he puts it perfectly at the top of his liner notes describing the songs as dedications and observations. The topics are quite varied. He writes observations about love, hurricanes and habeneros. Included are observations about his parents, new love full of hope, and not so new love turning into secrets and lies. The title sums up the way that they all are tied together.

Kate Bush fans will also enjoy decoding his song “Kate” because as he puts it, this song incorporates the titles of her albums and contains other obscure references in the lyrics. But for the most part the songs are not puzzles. They are straightforward story songs delivered in George’s smooth voice. The production quality is nice, with a gentle treatment that allows the lyrics and the stories to be in the foreground.
