Harry Manx - Wise And Otherwise
Artist: Harry Manx
Title: Wise And Otherwise
Label: NorthernBlues Music Inc. (www.northernblues.com)
The music of Harry Manx seems to always have this strange effect on
me. His latest album 'Wise and the Otherwise' is no exception. I find
myself completely focused on the music while staring at the wall in
a trance-like state. Songs like 'Death Have Mercy' and 'Roses Given'
seem to do that to me with relative ease. Certainly this is blues music
at it's finest. Any music that pulls it's listener in like this does,
is sure to be something well worth the praise I'm about to give.
Truth be told, there
are few blues albums that speak top me like this one does. There's a
deep emotion to this music that I find completely relaxing as well as
inspirational. This album is above and beyond what I would expect from
any modern blues artist, but that surprise is very welcomed. In a world
where good music is getting more and more difficult to find, it's always
nice to know that true artists like Harry Manx are out there grinding
out their true passion and emotion in every song. This is one of those
albums that comes highly recommended. Especially if you're emotionally
depleted and in need for some serious enjoyment.
