Toward the end of an album that features hip hop, jazz and just a taste of art rock (courtesy of the Minimoog) comes "Tempest." A central piano figure is repeated, shifted, deconstructed, elongated, polished and expanded. All the while, drummer Deantoni Parks adds weight and drama as the chords change. It's a funny idea, but if Phillip Glass and Steve Reich could write pop music, it might come out something like this. Stop laughing, it's not that funny!
