    Bubblegum is the key word: the sweet streak that runs through these songs, predominantly written by Childs, is a mile wide.

    If gentle psych-pop is very, very much your thing, you may fare better with Jonny, but otherwise the overriding impression the album will leave you with is that it would have made a really strong EP with some judicious pruning.

    Nothing here transcends either songwriter's back catalogue, but Jonny is a welcome blast of warmth that shows the fires still burn bright.

    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.

    They have expanded their joint sabbatical into an album that ram-raids its way through baroque pop, garage rock and Byrdsian harmonies. [Feb 2011, p.118]
