REVIEW OF - "SONGS FROM THE BILSTON HOUSE"
KINESIS

After three CDs released in the U.S., Songs from
the Bilston House (2007) is released on the Festival (F2) Music
label in the UK, so no more low U.S. pricing. This time around, Guy is joined by Fowles (saxes, vocals), Fairbairn (fiddles), Million (electric guitars), and Julie King (vocals), plus guests Dundon (flutes) and Tillison (keyboards, drums, vocals, co-production). We already thought that Guy Manning has been responsible for some of the best music this millennium, and itís remarkable that he manages
a new CD every year. But this new album is just incredible, almost all that is good in classic melodic British progressive rock rolled into one 67-minute CD.

In addition to all the influences and reference points mentioned above, we now Caravan, Genesis, Snow Goose-era Camel, and Fairport
Convention, and certainly fans of The Tangent will be drawn to this album. Excellent production and artwork top off a beautiful, powerful, intelligent and heartfelt progressive rock album.

We're going to have order alot more of these. Please be patient if we run out temporarily
