Album Notes
A musical alchemy, a death-folk, steamcrunk, organic-industrial experience sliding down the rabbit hole of performance art. The end result is a combination of edgy and eerie sounds.

"Really, any fan of the Velvet Underground, the Dresden Dolls, or those haunted merry-go-rounds that turn up in horror movies shouldn't miss Walter and the Toys, who elegantly merge the essence of all three" Globe

"There is a curious blend of mischief and morbidity in Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys, as the duo of Sickert and Edrie are called. They garnish their ominous doom-folk with the theatricality of a demonic circus troupe. Past performances have included storytellers, fire-eaters, glass-eaters, contortionists and, of course, Edrie's broken toy army." Boston Herald 2009

"Holy Damn this is so good...if Jim Morrison is walking the afterworld, he surely must audition for this band. And I shall be the one to tell him to!" - (Mike Loce) The Noise -OCT, 2006-issue 265

"Walter Sickert the Army of Broken Toys is about performance art as much as it is music" - Boston Herald 2009

"Something like Nine Inch Nails, horror movie soundtracks, and two radio stations that have their frequencies crossed." - BOSTON GLOBE January-9th-2007

"Their performance confounds the mind as much as it delights the senses." - (Nancy Neon) THE NOISE 2007

"Even the dreamy ambient numbers like "Sacrilege" dip into more nightmarish territory as Sickert's vocals, which are nearly always distorted, ebb and flow under the beauty." Ham radio static, reverb drenched piano, sinister synth line and Sickert's sidekick Edrie's creepy vocals make for a kind of Goth folk ride." - (Jon Nolan) THE WIRE 11 October 2006

"Turn and face the strange. Sickert has a real gift as a multi-instrumentalist and singer and he journeys into dark and eclectic material on his debut disc." - Maneating Lemur 2006

"Taken as a whole, the 13 track CD is epic poetry exploring the black pit of human despair. ...the sweet cooing of Edrie is the perfect haunting echo to Walter's murderous howl. Soul-crushing heartbreak never sounded so good." - (Lexi Kahn) Low Budget Super Hero 2007

"The duo behind the din manage to create a sound-scape that could pass for Lewis Carol's nightmares or an opium-soaked daydream." - (Jack) 0ct-10-07

"Sickert and Edrie are hunkering down for another RPM Challenge on the heels of completing a new studio album, which they hope to release this summer. One of the songs they originally recorded for the 2009 RPM Challenge made it onto their latest disc. That song, called “Off with Her Head,” was recorded live last February with audience participation and is now their most commonly requested tune." - The Wire - Interview for 5th Annual RPM Challenge 2010
