  1. With songs that face the pain and torment of neurotic fears, John & Jehn have crafted an absolutely stunning album of beautiful and noisy sounds placed atop slow, steady tempos and invigorating dance beats alike.
  2. 80
    The one constant is their ability to chill the nape hairs, which ultimately is all that matters. [Apr 2008]
  3. If French-born London émigrés John & Jehn don’t quite succeed in nailing the stroppy friction of their live shows over the course of their self-titled debut, third base is at least within groping distance.
  4. A bigger budget and they'll get really interesting. [May 2008, p.135]
  5. The record is reassuringly free of goo.
  6. John & Jehn probably imagine themselves as Serge Gainsbourg’s Bonnie And Clyde, when in reality they’re more like the indie-goth Richard & Judy.
