Cartoonish packaging suggests a light attitude and plenty of humor, but Scary Manillow has a rather dark modern hard rock undertone. There is trickery here though, a double level that exposes itself underneath as Christian Rock.
Think Creed without all the pretentions and poses.
Performances: 3.5/5 | Packaging: 4/5
