A superb anthology.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wild Birds: 1985 - 1995 (Audio CD)
This anthology gives you a concise history of the solo career of the guy that was the face of Bauhaus; that said, Peter Murphy's solo work illustrates a far more diverse artist who seems to be able to dip into numerous styles and come up with songs and arrangements (some a far cry from the Bauhaus sound) that move and astound. The only danger (as I found out) was that while it seems the logical choice to opt for the 'best of' at first when exploring an artist (although I've been a fan of Bauhaus for many years), in the case of this collection, it leaves you wanting more. No bad thing you might say, and I agree, the only problem being that you may have to buy the entire back catalogue (a fair few titles, especially given that his solo career runs continuously from '95 when this compilation ends right up to a release just recently)! This really is that diverse and genuinely good.
