    It's one of the best things Childs has ever done. [Dec 2013, p.104]
  2. 80
    His ninth leaves behind the wearing synth experiments and lo-fi oddities of recent years for a set of witty piano-pop songs.

    His arch whimsy is solidly underpinned by simpatico, full-band arrangements and his keen nose for an idiosyncratic tune. [Dec 2013, p.86]

    Despite this somewhat disjointed feel, Situation Comedy should still please most of his fans, whether or not they've kept up with his busy release schedule.

    A newly acquired taste for Gilbert O'Sullivan-style upright piano puts the accent on cheeky fun on his ninth solo album. [Dec 2013, p.66]

    If the music is broad, the characters in each song are acutely observed.
  7. 60
    Rest assured, this isn’t a record built to break completely free of any trademark parochial charms.
