CD Reviews

Great CD but not the best showcase
03/02/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a huge fan of Peter Murphy for some time now. His albums have always managed to tap into different sources of inspiration, and all have had their own "feel" to it. If you are new to Peter Murphy, or have never really listened to him before, this is good introductory cd. If you are a diehard fan like myself, this cd is more of a way to round out your collection. The man is obviously brilliant and has such a mesmerizing voice, but the tracks included here do not showcase his range. I don't understand why some songs were included on this retrospective, like "Hit Song" and "Subway." While both of these songs are good, they are not necessarily the best tracks chosen from his previous work. Where is "Our Secret Garden"? Where is "Cascade"? And where is "Marlene Dietrich's Favorite Poem"?Again, this is a great intro cd for someone who isn't familiar with Peter Murphy's work. If you end up liking his stuff, I would highly recommend you see him perform live. He puts on a phenomenal show."
Some hits, some of Peter's fave's
Christian Buckley | Washington State, United States | 12/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As far as greatest hits albums, this one delivers just because Peter's hits are just masterful. If I was going to be nitpicky, I'd complain that this compilation does not capture all of his best work, but the collection clearly captures some of Peter's own favorites -- such as 'Deep Ocean Vast Sea', 'Dragnet Drag' and 'Jemal'. While all good songs, they probably mean more to Peter than some of his most devout fans. I would have liked to have seen 'Marlene Dietrich's Favorite Poem', 'Blind Sublime', or 'Crystal Wrists' myself.

But again, this is a really good greatest hits album, and well worth the money for either collector or newly minted fan."

"I think this is a great showcase. Peter Murphy has one of those voices that is both frightening and beautiful, and this compilation presents the best that ten years has to offer. I agree that it would be a waste of money for anyone with three or more past recordings--there aren't any "lost" tracks or unreleased, cassete-tape-in-the-bedroom demos. What this CD provides is the perfect collection for the casual fan, who likes Murphy but just can't seem to muster the obsession required to collect all his albums."
