Editorial Reviews

In late 2005, Dale Turner started chipping away at the ultimate musicianship challenge: Write an entire record of super eclectic (non-mainstream, though surprisingly accessible) ROCK music that *he* (see BIO) wanted to hear, AND produce, perform all the instruments, arrange, and engineer himself (including the disc's artwork). The record that resulted, MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED (finally released June 1, 2010 on the INTIMATE AUDIO label), sits somewhere between the singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist tradition of Jon Brion, Elliott Smith, Joseph Arthur, and Sufjan Stevens, with added flavor from Dale's King's X, Mr. Bungle, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Brian Wilson/Beach Boys, and Bobby McFerrin influences. Moody, acoustic art-rock with ample room for interpretation:

GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE says: 'Smart pop tunes that are crammed with interesting guitar parts and tones ... Like what the Beach Boys might do if they were on an acid trip that was on the verge of getting out of control. Yeah!'
MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE says: 'Clever in concept and sophisticated in execution. Turner's an accomplished guitarist ... working at a high level. It seems there's nothing he cannot do in the studio.'
INDIE MUSIC DIGEST calls it: 'Musical brilliance. Highly original, creative, extremely melodic, and unpredictable as hell.'
MUSIC WEB EXPRESS calls Dale: 'A multi-talented yet quite eclectic composer/guitarist who never fails to take a hard left turn ... Mannerisms Magnified takes rock music in a daring new direction ... You'd never guess it was all one person doing it all.'
GUITARINSTRUCTOR.COM calls Dale: 'An ace guitarist with a vast stylistic palette.'

Beyond Turner's ace axework (acoustic and electric guitar influences that include the aforementioned Buckley and Smith, along with Steve Morse, Tommy Emmanuel, John Frusciante, Ani DiFranco, Ty Tabor, Andrew York, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck--many of whom Turner has had the privilege of conducting interviews/private lessons with at his former 'job'), MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED is heavily propelled by Turner's wide-ranging vocal approaches (from eerie whispers, dreamy falsetto, and stunningly-intricate harmonies, to full-throttle rock wails, cartoon-like voices, and throat singing effects). Factor in the multi-instrumentalist's subtly unorthodox drumming (influenced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, Steve Smith, and Stewart Copeland), linear-yet-supportive bass playing (influenced by Flea, Jaco Pastorius, and Carol Kaye), piano, mandolin, and accordion touches on select cuts--and the fact that virtually any other 'instrument' heard is actually a vocal sound (think: Mike Patton meets Bobby McFerrin meets Raul Midon)--and you get a hint of the unpredictable, yet highly-musical listening experience this 42-minute sonic journey offers.

MANNERISMS MAGNIFIED was initially mixed on a Power Mac G4 by Dale Turner, then remixed (from stems) through vintage/modern analog gear by sonic wizard Robert Wawoe. Mastered by Oasis Mastering's Eddy Schreyer (Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Take 6, Korn, Queen).

CD/DigiPak includes original art/illustrations and complete lyrics booklet.

The former West Coast Editor (1996-2007) of the now defunct Guitar One magazine, in addition to working as a performing/recording musician and producing engineer, Dale Turner is an instructor at Hollywood's Musician's Institute, author of 50+ instructional books/transcription folios, and writes a monthly acoustic guitar column for Guitar World magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mannerisms Magnified saved Earth July 9, 2011
By Frank
Format:Audio CD
So there I was out hiking the Angeles National forest minding my own business when suddenly a huge flying saucer landed. Things didn't look good right from the start, these aliens were blasting Slayer's "Reign In Blood" from their spaceship as they were landing. At first I was like "Yes! heavy metal aliens" but then I saw they were really mean. One of them kicked a deer!

They saw me and and I knew I was done for. I started running and they blasted me with a tractor beam and pulled me into the ship. They explained that I was to be dinner and there was nothing I could do about it. When they had their backs turned I threw my iPod into their iPod loading dock (Yes aliens use iPods) and started blasting "Exit Wound." They immediately stopped what they were doing and began headbanging like crazy. They said I just saved not only myself but Earth as well and let me go. They did keep my iPod.

You're all welcome. The best thing to do is purchase the cd that saved Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars You need to drink, drank, drunk this album! June 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Wow!!! I'm not sure what to say about Mannerisms Magnified other than I'm VERY impressed. First, the sound is perfect. Perfect instruments overpowering others... I love the originality, arrangement, depth, overall feel, etc of the songs...and the more I listen to it, the more I dig it. I'm not sure what to compare it to...I'm actually feeling some Queen/Beatles/Buckley/Pink Floyd, but all with a very modern beat. Incredible. Years of work, patience, and determination is very obvious.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Music. July 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Like I said before, this is the most impressive record I've heard since Marco Minnemann's House Wife Dog & 2 Kids. Maybe not coincidentally, Dale played every instrument on this album himself. And like Marco, Dale is able to transcend his principal instrument and express himself beyond just one tool -- an artist who happens to use sound to tell a story, not just a player of notes. The first time I listened to this thing, I was frozen in time and space as it took over my mind. I forgot where I was. Dale's music is complex, tricky, and unusual -- yet it never devolves into sterile math rock. At the core, you can't escape the beautiful vocal melodies and well-crafted acoustic guitar. It's alive, like music should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Multi-Talented Dale Turner!!! May 16, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
"Mannerisms Magnified" is just simply a great album from start to finish. Dale Turner is ridiculously talented, having played every instrument on the album himself. All twelve songs were written, arranged, performed, and recorded by Dale. The opening track, "Brian on the Brain," is clearly in honor of Brian Wilson with its Beach Boys inspired vocal stylings. Dale proves just how unique and original he is on tracks like "She-Hab," "Morality Rule," and "Exit Wound" with their eccentric melodies and brilliantly complex vocal harmonies. Other songs, such as "Taken" and "Hiding Place" offer truly personal and introspective lyrics. If you are a fan of Jeff Buckley, Queen, or even Mr. Bungle, you will appreciate the exceptional song writing and remarkable musicianship found on Dale Turner's latest release, "Mannerisms Magnified." Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super cool Madness! February 13, 2014
By Todd
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Album is filled with such awesomeness, It has a vibe to it where you can almost feel exactly what is being felt when He's playing those instruments. Music now a days isn't filled with as much love and charisma as some people, and this album Is one of them!! Lately there hasn't been much music to buy, since everything cool Is old school, But the Album changed that for me and finally had me break the "curse" that has been upon me! Highly suggest you purchase this album if you're into some raw music that's different from what you usually hear on the radio now a days, something with heart!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dale Turner Creates A One-Man-Band Masterpiece! September 9, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Greetings music and art lovers! I have just recently by lucky coincidence discovered through Carl King an unbelievably talented singer and songwriter named Dale Turner. I don't usually get into music unless it seems that the music is honest in what it's trying to convey. I wasn't disappointed when I chose to purchase his 2010 release Mannerisms Magnified. Dale Turner composes songs in a way that demonstrate three musical dimensions (or however many multiple musical universes you can imagine inside a song) instead of the usual two dimensions that pop or rock radio music has to offer. Mr. Turner plays all the instruments himself; this gives the music an undisturbed creative sphere that is truly refreshing! Both acoustic and electric instruments create a rock tapestry that is reminiscent of the Beach Boys, Todd Rundgren, Frank Zappa, and other geniuses, while creating a space of his own on the level of all the past great songwriters! Bottom line: get this album if you love exciting new music that offers up a unique sonic perspective. Count me in as a fan for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly creative, great music! September 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dale Turner has created a clear musical voice that is almost unclassifiable--he is eclectic in the genres he spans, and he blends disparate influences beautifully. The end result is a sound that is unmistakable--both instantly accessible as well as enduringly interesting. Incidentally, I am on my fifth listen of Mannerisms Magnified, and loved it the first time, as well as every single subsequent time.

Imagine songs with the intimacy of singer/songwriter aesthetic, yet with a hefty dose of complexity, layering, and musical interest. It's like Brian Wilson and the Beatles meet Queen and Led Zeppelin, with traces of Frank Zappa and Mr. Bungle. Dale writes great lyrics--and they range from the wacky to the profound.

The first track, "Brian on the Brain," seems to be a nod to Brian Wilson, with perfectly in-tune layers of vocal harmonies. Yet the crunchiness of some of the harmonic movement makes it clear this is from Dale's brain, not Brian's. It is human voice only--no other instruments or lyrics, and a very cool way to start the ablum.

"Bad Seed" starts out with a solo acoustic guitar and 5/4 time that doesn't feel jarring--not unlike Zeppelin's ability to make odd time somehow danceable. Similarly, "Morality Rule," has great, cutting lyrics, and again 5/4 time that is completely groovy.

Every track is stellar, so pick your flavor. This album is fantastic and enduring.

As a side note, what is downright staggering is that he played and wrote every note for every instrument, and did so very, very well.
