”Todd Gordon's new album - “Love dot com” - is an enthralling collection of classics and brilliant originals all done in a signature way. Gordon has created, yet again, his own clear aesthetic with witty ideas and that incredibly warm voice we all love. Not only that, he's one of those rare singers where you can actually understand every word he sings.
