So Many Top Notch Tracks
Paul Kendall | Los Angeles | 08/24/2004

"A great CD for chilling. Definitely my favorite Peter Murphy release.

His voice is one that grabs you and doesn't let go. "Socrates the Python" while far from the poppier songs is magnificent. Very brooding.

Of course, the familiar "Indigo Eyes" and "All Night Long" are just absolutely fabulous. It's rare for a CD to have three all out homerun songs.

I really enjoy the gentle "Dragnet Drag". "I've Got a Minature Secret Camera" is another very cool tune.

I still remember when Peter Murphy brought his birthday boy Dad up on stage during the "Love Hysteria" tour. Really a class act, just like this CD.
A timeless musical jewel

"My introduction to Peter Murphy came with his album "Deep". I didn't learn about "Love Hysteria" until much later. Yet, when I found out about it, it still sounded fresh and as deep as in 1988 when it first came out, and that continues to be the case today.

Songs like the opening classic "All Night Long", the philosophical "Socrates The Python" and the epic ballad "Time Has Got Nothing To Do With It" make me go back to the album and feel uplifted each time I listen to it. The lyrics stand out particularly, framed by Murphy's unique deep voice and a musical signature that runs through the album, making this one of the two best Murphy has recorded (the other being "Deep")."
The best from godfather goth

"This is my favorite Peter Murphy solo cd. It is not the punk/goth of Bauhaus, but more metaphysical. Vivid and poetic imagery are at at their height in this album, echoed only slightly less so by his following album "Deep". When I first listened to it some sixteen years ago, I wasn't impressed the first time round. Several months later, I popped in the then cassette (now worn out and replaced with the cd)and gave it an honest listen. I was hooked for months thereafter and it has become one of the staples in my music collection, one of the cd's that for me is "home"."
