UNCIVIL SOCIETY, THE: The John Dewey Experience: CD and booklet

The second project from the mysterious Gorilla X to grace my mailbox. As was the case with the previous release, Spectral Semiotic Sound, The Uncivil Society focuses on a single topic throughout the album. The John Dewey Experience is a conceptual rumination on the philosophies of educator John Dewey, who advocated learning by doing. Gorilla X’s painstaking album notes elucidate the process of conceptualizing and recording the album, which is thoughtful, interesting, and well-played throughout. I’m a huge sucker for self-contained concepts like those that the Uncivil Society records. Check ’em out. –Michael T. Fournier (theuncivilsociety.com)
