CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

Somewhat fragmented yet totally spellbinding.

80
XLR8R

Under The Sun is Mark Pritchard’s most consistent piece of work in some time, one that is beautifully conceived and produced with restraint and an overall vision that, most of the time, only an artist of considerable experience can muster.

80
PopMatters

The strength of Under the Sun rests with his continued spirit of collaboration and his eclectic style, recognizing the endless possibilities of infusing pop elements into electronic music’s abstract spirit.

80
Uncut

It’s when he wanders off-piste with Bibio, Thom Yorke and Linda Perhacs that the record comes alive, and these instrumental tracks then play a vital supporting role.

76
Pitchfork

Deeply atmospheric and richly impressionistic, Under the Sun is an easy album to disappear into.

72
Resident Advisor

Under The Sun isn't the major departure that it seems on the surface, but rather a pleasant detour through mythical, imagined landscapes.

70
Exclaim!

On Under the Sun, Pritchard has managed to create a highly listenable and well-sequenced piece of art out of a collection of ostensibly illogical ideas.

60
Under The Radar

It's a sinuous and, at times, difficult listen, but these songs are supple enough to sink into, given space and the necessary inclination.

( ☆☆½ ) ambivalent, i don't feel fully connected with it.

Cold and calculated, but still sounds so organic. Like a breathing computer; it reminds me of Blade Runner. Spectacular album with a ton of playback value.

Mucho mejor de lo que parece a simple vista.

Under the Sun es de esos materiales para perderse, con espacios de transiciones epilépticas, disparadas en forma de sorpresa, para recabar en otra cascada de mareas dispersas, y luego recogerlas para andar y andar. No hay significado, es sólo seguir la corriente.
