Biography

In his four decades of service in the post-punk culture wars, PETER MURPHY has confounded fans, critics, even himself. As the mainman of the acclaimed outfit Bauhaus, he helped usher in ground breaking opaque moods and atmospheres into the post-punk landscape. When the band broke up for the first time in 1983, the singer set off on a solo career that found him challenging his audiences in ... Read more in Amazon's Peter Murphy Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 16 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Murphy delivers once more.This CD is superb and has a more than regular position in my CD player. The best way to describe this CD is if you`ve listened to Gabriel`s "Last Temptation of Christ", then add a tinge of Sylvianesque gadgetering here and there followed by Murphy`s evocative lyrics and vocals and you have this masterpiece.There is an eerie eastern influence throughout, but there is beauty, depth and feeling in this music. You can shut your eyes and depending on your mood, conjure up any image you want to. Excellent CD Pete!!

Peter Murphy never disappoints, and this offering is no exception. The first track, Things To Remember, is a mindblowing sound of haunting vocals and soaring music, which sets the tone for the duration of the C.D. Electric violin and Turkish instruments give a unique sound and complement Murphys deep and seductive vocals.
Lyrically challenging, as always, Dust has all the influences of previous works. Go ahead, give your ears a treat !

5.0 out of 5 stars Eurasian Murphy 13 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is full of intresting sounds. Murphys voice is compared to Bowie at times, that's how good he is and yet his voice is unique. At times there are parts of this music that remind me of 'Gone To Earth' by Sylvian. Again that's how good this is. It's very good, and just gets better on each listen. This is Murphy with a Eurasian touch. Although the Turkish influences dominate, it's not invasive, it's tastefull, there are moments where it's not there at all. Interesting interpretations of 'My Last Two Weeks' and 'Subway', the original versions of which can be found on previous albums.
My enjoyment is tarnished by the fact that my disc has what sounds like a badly scratched vinyl record would sound like running through parts of tracks 5 and 8. Disappointing. Amazons MP3 recording for track 8 has the same problem. I haven't returned it as I risk my replacement being the same and I don't want to be without this music.
What would 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' sound like if it had been included here ?

Songs From Golden Dust

This album was made in ? not 2001! It's a diamond amongst stones, and like the diamond it has an authentic and geniune sparkle. The whole musical environment sounds natural and spontaneous and it's as if Peter has returned or found a place or environment, which he has always been part of and comfortable with. Peter's incredible voice reflects/mirrors the music so naturally and perfectly... That diamond voice cut from a star, unveils its colourfully rich baritone caress, in a much more intimate and spontaneous style. Dust has a cool spacious quality coloured with a spiritual beauty that allows the listener to journey both the spiritual and metaphysical realms of their own perennial/infinite realm... the heart! This is Peter Murphy singing from the home within his heart... Dust is free from the reigns of commercialization.

A great sense of being, humility and a feeling of great purity emanates from this powerful album... A beauty and clarity that is something quite special and undefinable. This album has such a cool balance... It is neither from the east or the west, but from the middle way. Many people are going to find this album really inspiring, it's unique! I was scented away and to put that experience into action is quite simple... "The proof, as always, must come with the eating, so I suggest you claim your portion and relish it".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Peak of Murphy's Evolution 18 Nov 2003
By "richardc766" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Peter Murphy's album "Dust" is what I consider to be the peak of his progressive evolution. We have all heard elements of this "sound" in his earlier albums, but with DUST, he goes all out, and does an absolutely phenomenal job with it. Songs such as "No Home Without its Sire," "Just for Love," "Jungle Haze" with the brilliant bongo set towards the close. And of course, the beautifully rendered version of two old songs, "My Last Two Weeks" and "Subway" which has a little extra (Epilogue) not included in the original; you simply can't go wrong with this meditative, Middle Eastern sound supporting the elegant and strong voice of Peter Murphy - you simply cannot go wrong!
It is no doubt my favorite Murphy album. His lyrics are deep, overlaying a subtle Middle Eastern flare that converges with one another in a way I could've never expected when I bought the album. Innovative, creative, musically enhanced and collaborated with Murphy's metaphoric and consistently poetic, thought-provoking lyrics, along with his voice, which may I add has developed over the years into a weapon in itself; just listen to the opening lyric-only song "Cool Cool Breeze" on "Just for Love Live" and you will understand the heightened status of this man's voice, from Bauhaus in 79 to Dust in 2002. What more can I say: absolutely brilliant, better than any other!

Yes, I invite feedback from other Murphy fans or those who disagree with my opinion; always up for a debate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 3 May 2002
By Judith Camacho - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is honest and very real. I feel that in past Peter Murphy albums there have been some slight undertones of insecurity and dishonesty which is natural when a musician is growing, but this album rings true to me. I have heard people say that this album is cliche and world beat-ish, but anyone who sees this as simply another world beat album isn't listening and is perhaps afraid to let the music take them somewhere unknown. This isn't an album for just anyone, however. You must be ready to let yourself go and allow the rythm and his voice to take you on a journey through your soul. I would strongly recommend this album to anyone who is willing to be rocked in a major way. pick it up. You'll be happy you did. Peter always delivers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked, Underrated 8 Jan 2004
By David Cundiff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's such a rarity when an artist actually gets better over a period of time. Such an example is Peter's latest album 'Dust'. Legend has it that it was actually Mercan Dede who called Peter to suggest working on his next album and who suggested rerecording 'Subway' and 'My Last Two Weeks'. Both of those songs have never sounded better in my opinion. The beauty of 'Dust' is that it so perfectly blends the influences of both Turkish and Western music culture. The songs, which were written inside of a week, are very emotional and personal. 'Girlchild Aglow' was written about Murphy's relationship with his daughter and how it has changed with time. Although Murphy's vocals are the focal point, the music doesn't take a back seat, blending electronic sounds with some incredible-sounding real percussion, not to mention input from some great musicians such as violinist Hugh Marsh who we all remember from 'Alive...Just For Love'. I really can't say enough about how much I love this album. It should have recieved awards. It should have sold in the millions. Do yourself a favor and purchase one of the best albums of all time by one of the best vocalists of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!!! 4 Jan 2004
By bellspirit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Knowing I am a huge Peter Murphy fan, my boyfriend gave me "Dust" for Christmas. I was entranced by the very first song... and then continued to be mesmerized by each song after that. The Middle Eastern instruments were beautifully used throughout the music. The new version of "My Last Two Weeks" made me cry, it was so gorgeously moving. The album as a whole is very atmospheric, and there is an intense exotic/gothic/mysterious mood throughout, making it consistent from song to song. This is why I have always loved Peter Murphy's music, and this album seems more "him" than ever... as if his style is evolving with the course of his life, and aging/progressing in the best of ways. It's so genuine. If you're a huge Bauhaus fan, you probably won't like this album. In my opinion, the further away Peter Murphy gets from Bauhaus, the better his music is. Although you may not hear any of these songs on the radio, and I don't believe there are any "singles" on here (that is, in my opinion, a *good* thing), this album is darkly mellow, hauntingly stirring, and a must-have for those who love what Peter Murphy is all about.
