According to a review from allmusic.com, “A few tracks into We the Common, singer/songwriter/bandleader Thao Nguyen bridges from verse to chorus on “The Feeling Kind” with the lyrics “Oh, honey look alive!/It’s just human troubles in the modern times.” This seemingly benign couplet actually speaks volumes for where Nguyen’s head is at on this album and the general focus on the larger human community that defines its songs.”
Their most recent record, We the Common, has garnered praise for being more politically aware than their previousefforts, yet manages to keep the uptempo, optimistic vibe that audiences have come to expect.
Thao & The Get Down Stay Down’s newest album is the most thoughtful in musicality and lyricism in some time. We the common really do crybrandon pierce geary
