    Oh No I Love You feels softer but it also is more adventurous and satisfying, the sound of a pop obsessive finally letting himself indulge in the weirder areas of his imagination.

    Oh No I Love You is a warm affair and a slightly more together reflection of Tim than I Believe was, and the accompanying remix album with cosmic re-works by the likes of Seahawks is a bonus too. This deserves to find itself in as many homes as possible.

    The result is exactly what I Believe wasn't: tasteful, sensitive and containing a fair few memorable tunes.

    Burgess always wanted to be a country soul man, on this album he has done it. [Oct 2012, p.87]

    An underplayed, subtle triumph, but a victory nonetheless.
  6. This is a sweet postcard from a man who still gives a shit about trying something new.

    An album that sounds hushed, bucolic and carefully crafted. [Oct 2012, p.94]

    Far more stripped back than the Charlatans frontman's previous offerings, Oh No flits between affecting moments (the rather gorgeous 'Hours') and repetitive down-beaters ('A Case For Vinyl') that seem to go nowhere.

    [Oh No I Love You presents] an appealing synthesis, particularly on Tobacco Fields, in which every instrument, and Burgess's unusually delicate voice, shiver between melancholy and joy.

    Much of this delightful album resonates with the sound of a man's ambition fulfilled.

    The result is one of this year's most welcome collaborations. Definitely worth the ten-year wait.

    The result is a high;y accomplished and warmly uplifting country-soul album that easily holds its own amid both musicians' back catalogues. [Oct 2012, p.73]
