DH Bought the digital version last year when it came out, but since I've started my cassette collection I absolutely had to add this to it.

I love everything about this record. The production is top quality. That goes without saying. But the feel of the album is like a summer day, driving with the roof down... In the 80s!!!! Favorite track: A Kind Of Freedom.

Kirk Markarian An album that simultaneously takes me back to a different time, yet pulls me into the moment right in front of me. Great production, beautiful melodies; a fine way to melt away the day.

about

Spotify: spoti.fi/36IBECP

Manhatten was born in and of the 1980s and, in his own words, "survived the decade the first time around and decided to go back for more". Combining old tech and sounds with new production ideas, he's helping to bring the 1980's back (minus the shoulder pads)... even if no-one wants him to.

The album is the story of the Blue Sky Girl - she represents that one person in everyone's life who seems to burn twice as bright, but for half as long. Listen as the story unfolds and draw your own conclusions as to who she is, what happened and how it will end.

Dripping in nostalgia but not looking backwards, tinged with a beautiful melancholy that'll have you dancing, and packing a few well placed punches to the Juno 106, the one thing for sure is that you'll remember it, like your own Blue Sky Girl, for the years to come...

-----------------------------------------------------------

"Blue Sky Girl is an album drenched in emotion. It has nostalgia without over-reliance on that feeling, energy that is tinged with sadness and power that is able to lift the listener up and carry them soaring along. If this is what Manhatten Synth has to offer in the future, I’ll take some more please!" - Karl Magi (bit.ly/2BDJEd5)

"The overall flow of “Blue Sky Girl” feels like a telephone conversation between two people who either want to or already intimately know one another. And while I do tend to think that Manhatten intended his version of the “Blue Sky Girl” to be somebody he actually knows, I can’t help but feel like there’s a great distance between him and her." - Nioletta Winters (Loveacrosslightyears.com)
