“Gratification” – Paul Manchin

Composed by David Bottrill and Paul Manchin, “Gratification” is the latest of Paul’s introspective, soundtrack-style themes. The Toronto-based Manchin, a musician of contrasts, doesn’t give much to review here with this CD, which has two tracks: the vocal and instrumental. It is consistent with his style and when I reached-out to him, I had been under the impression that he was sending me a new album instead of just two cuts of one song!

Alas, in this case, all you hear is all you get. I’m looking forward to receiving Manchin’s next full-length album and videos, hopefully before 2023 is over, Therefore, that is it for this year’s metaphorically, dreamy ride salutation from one, king Paul.  Why do I seem to feel like I take a ride when I review his songs?

Looks like he’s ‘drowning in a sea of love‘!
