AllMusic Review by

Departing from his more relaxing, contemplative music with nature sounds, Ken presents a bright, contemporary light jazz album, Modern World. Australia's foremost composer of synthesized music brings us straight to the contemporary music scene with flashes of reggae, soft rock and Latin percussion. In some cuts, we are immersed in sounds of our modern world: the hustle and bustle of a busy street, high-tech hubbub, freeway sounds and people talking. Robust, pulsing drum rhythms and sparkling percussion join Davis' light jazz digital grooves to bring the listener a very different, very new Davis sound.
