The cover of this album is a petition signed by the musicians playing on it, asserting that they believe "music can still be a political force of note and not just the soundtrack to overconsumption," which should give you a pretty good idea of where Herbert's head is these days. Of course, long-time listeners are well aware of his interest in injecting some seriousness into pop, jazz and dance music. But in this case he's more heavy-handed with the political content than usual.

There’s something missing.
