    You'll fall for Peter Broderick's humour and ingenuity in the end. [Nov 2012, p.90]

    Don't be put off by these four tracks being hard work, because the other six are fantastic and consign Broderick as the lo-fi bedroom auteur to his past.

    It's those thematic ideas of self-worth and pride that beget the sort of personal, intimate relationship that we've come to recognise in the music of many of the Erased Tapes family over the last five years, and that's something that will always be worth hearing.

    At times emotive and playful, Broderick has created a cohesive album of delicate, Russell-esque melodies with enough wonkiness, experimentation and spoken word to make a unique, personal and engaging release of happy accidents.

    The unshrouded nature of these compositions reveals interesting and insightful aspects of the creator and his practice.

    Everything in the music feels to reticent, too cautious, while the words feels too wrapped up in their own virtue.

    Ultimately, These Walls Of Mine is too incoherent and disparate in style to merit any amount of satisfaction.
