Absolutely Sensational 3 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you like acoustic guitar in any form, you will appreciate this album. There's plenty for Bass players too, as the bassist on this album is as worthy as Tony himself.
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

Inspiring 11 Oct 2001
By James G Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On "PourquoiQuebec?" Tony McManus demonstrates a technical ability not many possess in the acoustic guitar world. His percision and feeling is almost beyond compare. You can feel the mood of the song(s) and see the imagery in every note he plays. If you enjoy Acoustic Guitar get this CD, you'll be pleased beyond any expectations you might have.

Unbelievable fingerstyle guitarist 1 Nov 2012
By Rob Stuart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Stumbling upon Tony McManus' albums on eMusic and never having heard of him, my jaw dropped in astonishment at the first listening and has remained roughly at knee-height on every subsequent listening, for this Scotsman of Irish descent has unbelievable fingerstyle technique on steel-strung acoustic. He's far more than a slick technician, though: every single note, even in his lightning fast ornamentations (yes, every little thing he does is magic), is clearly sounded and deeply felt. As if that wasn't enough, he also has an impeccable sense of rhythm and timing. If you love the likes of Pierre Bensusan, John Renbourn and Martin Simpson and have a penchant for Celtic traditionals, this album will blow you away.
The bass player is fantastic too, the two instruments blending seamlessly together and complementing each other like a marriage made in heaven.
Two outstanding tracks: the lovely, rich and complex arrangement of Sean O Duibhir a' Ghleanna, which seems to have been inspired by Liam O'Flynn's rendition (on uilleann pipes) on his album Out to an Other Side (1993), and The Dance of Suleiman, which originally appeared on Andy Irvine's & Davy Spillane's East Wind (1992) and has fiendishly tricky time signatures, rhythms and shifts.
Also highly recommended by Tony McManus: Ceol More (2002 and The Maker's Mark (the Dream Guitar sessions)(2009).
