    Blake and Childs have no need to prove why they're considered some of the U.K.'s best songwriters and musicians, but Jonny does just that.

    It sounds more like a busk than a serious recording session, and that briskness is its strength. [Feb 2011, p.83]

    Overall, Jonny finds that fine like between whimsy and substance, and walks it pretty well. Neil Jung, wherever he is, would probably approve.

    Who knows if Jonny will be a one-off project or a long-term collaboration, but there's a little something here for everyone. [May 2011, p..85]

    Although they've played and recorded together in the past, here they sound as though they're still finding out how to best combine their quirks.

    Speculation aside, the music that Childs and Blake have produced here is gentle, unassuming and good humoured. It won't change the world, but it will warm the hearts of those fortunate enough to hear it.
