Comments:   Excerpt from club review, Music Connection Magazine, Vol. XXVI, No. 23 November 11 - November 24, 2002.
Performance: "Serving as a significant focal point of the performance, Brown contributed to the visceral energy of the set with banging head and a frenzy of flailing arms and sticks."
Musicianship: "Consistently fueling each song with a flurry of unihibited beats, Brown ironically serves as the most captivating musician."
