    I enjoyed this production. A festival of Nujazz and broken beat offerings with colour and texture demonstrating exceptional production. Chris Brann is somewhat of a genius I feel with his ability to create solid house music through Wamdue project and Ananda Project, but also at P’taah. I had already heard two tracks which are on this album and was enough to make me buy it. If you are familiar with and enjoy the works of Jazzanova, Bugz in the Attic, Eddy meets yannah, Nu spirit Helsinki, Mark De Clive Lowe and 4Hero plus other similar producers then you will likely appreciate this. Note: I cannot speak for other albums by p’taah though as I only own this one.

      Dilla sampled "Hold You Close" on the alternate intro of Ruff Draft.

        Disappointing. After the beauty of COMPRESSED LIGHT, STARING AT THE SUN seems much too much like Brann's other alias, the Ananda Project. Indeed, many of the chord progressions and synth pads on this album are identical to the Ananda Project albums. Terrance Downs' vocals -- as good as they are -- lend a somewhat bland R&B vibe that aren't present on COMPRESSED LIGHT. Towards the end, "Arise" and "Surrendering" begin to reclaim some of the personality so prevalent in P'Taah's earlier work, but it comes a tad too late. Let's hope Brann's able to regain his footing.
