"Public is the highly anticipated debut full length from Michael Manning, and it's a true musical rainbow. The album showcases his talents for producing a myriad of styles, switching between orchestral parts, analogue warmth, vocals (both his own and friends), hip-hop, digital programming, and remarkable songwriting. Manning's ambient roots also underpin the album, forcing reflection from the listener and displaying subtlety and discretion at every turn. Repeated listens reveal incredible depth. Taken in isolation these are fourteen brilliantly realized songs, of which repeated listens reveal incredible depth."
