- The band sent copies of this album to U2 and they liked it so much they added The Walls to the line-up of their second legendary Slane Castle show in 2001.

- Bone Deep was a huge hit with radio in Ireland.

- The tracks Bone Deep, Something's Wrong and Chestnut featured on the soundtrack to the cult 2001 film "On the Edge" starring Cillian Murphy and directed by John Carney (Once; Begin Again; Sing Street)

What the press had to say:
"Their debut, Hi-Lo, has just turned 20 and is a gem of a record. It marked a progression in the duo’s writing, adding some grit, sonic experimentation and lo-fi textures to their innate knack for writing songs bursting with melody. From February’s Gone, to singles Bone Deep, Broken Boy and Some Kind Of A Girl, it’s a record worth diving back into, full of interesting left-turns and some gorgeous tracks, such as the piano-based closer If I Had You." - Steve Cummins 'Taking the Hi with the Lo'

'The Walls are in fine form, with their debut album 'Hi-Lo' proving that the Stunning brothers haven't lost it when it comes to penning a killer tune.' - John Walsh, Hot Press

'Well crafted tightly wound grooves packed with rootsy guitar licks, choppy keyboards, squiggly synths and deadly accurate lyrics' - Kevin Courtney, Irish Times

'Hi-Lo is a brilliant and wonderfully catchy album. Lashed together with stinging guitars and an open minded approach to production, the Beckish 'Bone Deep' and 'New Born Baby' are highlights. 'Hi-Lo' is a musically diverse, grown up album with a real melodic kick.' - Alan Corr, RTE Guide

'The Walls fine debut Hi-Lo discards the epic sweeping gestures of yore, trading them for a more textured, multilayered approach that owes much to the likes of Beck, Garbage and even Primal Scream in their less frenetic moments'- Colm O'Hare, Hot Press
