    This pairing actually works almost as well as the one that produced that incredible LP [1964's Folk Roots, New Routes]. [Nov 2011, p.67]

    On 200 Years, Ben and Elisa play their mortality out, unnerved and reassuring, wisely, beautifully.

    The most impressive aspect of 200 Years, especially considering it as the debut of a new collaboration, is its overall aura of cool confidence.

    200 Years is as subtle as they come and makes for excellent background music, especially if you're feeling fragile.

    It's hard to imagine 200 Years standing out, even considering its low-key spirit.

    For the most part this is worthy of a half-decent coffeehouse open mic night, nothing more. [Dec 2011, p.79]

    The repetition and sameness of the 10 songs on 200 Years quickly becomes mind-numbing, the painful plainsong wearing out its welcome before the record reaches the halfway point, let alone by the end of its 40 long minutes.
