3.0 out of 5 stars Clumsy in places but has it's own charm, 17 April 2014
This review is from: Been Listening (Audio CD)
Having enjoyed "A Larum", I though I'd give Johnny another listen. There are many enjoyable moments on this album if you like Flynn's brand of mellow folk. However, I just felt that this album lacked a certain attention to detail that spoiled it for me a bit. Take "Churlsih May" for example: The trumpet trio throughout is a really great sound, it meshes wonderfully with Flynn's vocals, but I felt it was clumsy. The trumpets are soon joined by an unfortunately naff synth bass and drum line. It's a shame. Remove the percussion, replace the bass with a sousaphone and you'd have a gorgeous brass feature. Instead, the result seems hurried and cobbled together, unrehearsed in places.

It may be a case of difficult-second-album for Flynn and I would like to hear a third. Sadly, without attention to detail this album hasn't excelled.
