Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Read "That's a Computer" reviewed by David A. Orthmann

Read "Find the Common, Shine a Light" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Pur confermando l'avvincente impronta stilistica evidenziata nei tre album precedenti, il pianoless quintet di Ryan Keberle presenta un lavoro leggermente disorganico e musicalmente più superficiale dei precedenti, forse perchè distolto da un intento politico (contestare l'elezione presidenziale statunitense del 2016). Il percorso musicale raccoglie due famosi temi della contestazione giovanile degli anni sessanta («The Times They ...
