It was always going to be difficult for Jenny Morris to follow the success of Shiver, but Honeychild was not the way to go about it. Honeychild continued in the same vein of sunny pop that her previous two albums had exploited. However, by the time this album was released, it was starting to wear a little thin. The biggest single from this disc, "Break in the Weather," is a re-write of Shiver's "She Has to Be Loved," yet it's still the disc's best track; an indication of the quality of the rest.
