Terry Manning’s Venus is a track is a little bit Bond, a little bit big band, and is sublimely catchy. The track is able to tell a detailed story over the course of its five-minute run time. The constituent elements of the track are able to shine alone or as a cohesive unit. Venus’ electronic beats, island sounds, keyboards, bass, and drums are able to keep listeners on the edges of their seats through a variety of distinct movements. Manning is talented enough to make these disparate elements work, making for a truly epic composition that occupies a much greater space than its run time may indicate.
