This album is as close to perfection as downtempo/chillout album can be. It is beautiful, melodic, and the sounds interact with each other sooo well, that it became my everyday listen album. I just cannot resist listening again and again to such tracks as crystal-clear "Igmatik", foot-tapping "Circles" and warm "That Much Closer". The rest compositions sound pretty good as well. It is indeed wonderful album with positive summer vibes and even some g tracks do not destroy the overall impression . The last regular track is That Much Closer which feels like a closing track to the summer. Think the end of summer, late September when it's not so hot but still comfortable enough to sit out on the grass with a few tinnies and watch the world go by. It's soft, it's dreamy, it's quite melodic and it's just nice.

Russ Davies released That Much Closer to the Sun, his first album as Abakus, in 2004, to a great deal of acclaim. That Much Closer to the Sun is known as being one of the best albums released on Liquid Sound Design to that point. The album’s carefree attitude, which hearkens back to summers when there was nothing to be dealt with but lounging in the sun, attracted many fans and a great deal of appreciation from listeners and critics alike. On February 24, 2015, however, Abakus will come roaring back with the release of a new dual single, a teaser for Abakus Album. The two songs set to be released are The Beginning and Dreamer. Abakus is still pushing the creative envelope of the dance scene, with subtle melodies and an incredible drumline.
