Peter Broderick has released a lot of music for a young fellow. This 2008 album was his first in the `singer-songwriter' vein. On the face of it, it's fairly unremarkable acoustic music. Yet it has some undefined quality which makes it stand out from the rest of the acoustic rabble.

Broderick is classically trained and plays all the instruments and provides all vocals here. Second track, And It's Alright is typical of most of the songs here. It gently unfurls, with a deceptively simple melody over a gorgeous picked guitar. With The Notes In My Ears, Below It and Not At Home are also examples of this style, and equally good.

He also does a couple of instrumentals which use similar elements. The best of these is probably the six minute Sickness, Bury which starts with sparse, picked guitar before being joined by banjo and keyboard. The tune creates an unsettling atmosphere, sounding like it could soundtrack a journey over a wide expanse. Shards of electric guitar and percussion are thrown in, and even when the brief, wordless vocals come in, it maintains the tense atmosphere.

Later in the album, Maps is a bit of a departure in that it starts out as a plainly sung acoustic track before adding electric guitar midway through and building up to a choral climax, all celestial vocals and crashing cymbals.

It's a charming bunch of songs, which I think holds the key to why this album stands out - songwriting.

One of the best albums in my collection. I listen to Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Nils Frahm, A-Ha, Jimi Hendrix, Bliss, Nirvana, etc., etc. So its a good cross section of various types of genres. Peter Broderick's album is between Acoustic guitars, his lovely voice and background vocals (like hymns) and un-ostentatious tapping on drums. All beautifully crafted songs and each song is a small wonder. If you don't have any albums of Peter Broderick, please get this one it is the best album I have of him. Very intimate and homely. Its a double Cd compilation and somehow the extra bonus Cd is as good as (or even better) than the intended album CD.

The album is very acoustic with mellow background vocals. Peter's voice is as always wonderful and very simple.
Highly recommended, you will listen to it over and over again.

Music within the heart 5 Oct. 2009
By Mario - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mr. Broderick is a master Modern Classical composer, this wonderful project is a step in a new direction for him. As noted in the CD liner notes he is paying homage to his early influences in music, which is mainly folk music. On this release he sings and what a wonderful thing this is. He is a gifted musician weaving finally crafted stories along side softly strummed guitars and strings to export you (the listener) to a place where all that matters is what is within the heart.
