2014 Con Artisti/Appaloosa
"Manson, long a New York fixture, but in recent years ensconced in Santa Fe, is a four-decade veteran of rootsy rock. The Slight Variations finds him co-writing with Caline Welles (his wife) and old pals Chris Barron (Spin Doctors) and Joe Flood. With its bluesy guitar riffing, honky-tonk piano, and gospelish female backing vocals, "Rough and Tumble" recalls the Rolling Stones, except more vital than they've been in years. There are also songs of sweet tenderness (but never sappy) and some thoughtful material that elevates Variations above the roots-rock norm. One of my favorite albums of 2016."

"At My Window"
"...if ever a song was ‘of its time’ it is The Christian Thing, which isn’t preachy in the slightest but a song trying to bring all sides together in our troubled times." Rocking Magpie UK
