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 ?
