This album is excellent. The song writing and arrangements are amazing. Murphy's lyrics are enigmatic and beautiful...the man's a true poet.

I only wish that Beggar's Banquet would remaster and re-release Deep, Love Hysteria, and Holy Smoke. They were mixed way to thin like a lot of albums from the late 80s and early 90s.

Peter Murphy left Bauhaus in 1983 and has quitely been plugging away producing albums.
This is one of his more goth/melancholy albums, but that is not to say that it doesn't have it's moments of splendour.
His voice is in great form, and the hundred men play with passion. The album starts off slowly and builds to a crescendo with It Cuts You Up.
A good album, but it's not Cascade....

it's a fine album though, kind of melancholy and a good bit more sophisticated than the 'haus were. presumably this being a solo affair he felt free to get away from the horror-movie look and feel. I hear he lives in Turkey now.
if you listened to Bauhaus a lot in the old days, but you've grown up and calmed down since then - give this a listen

Cascade is an album of mostly mid-tempo ballads. Mirror To My Woman's Mind and Subway are pleasant enough but they don't really stick in the mind. Gliding Like A Whale has a stronger melody and evocative synthesizer where the vocals take interesting twists and turns to lift the track above the average.

The chugging beat and prominent guitar of Disappearing gives this song more of a rock feel, while Mercy Rain is a mellow ballad and I'll Fall With Your Knife is a meandering number with atmospheric instrumentation. The tempo picks up for The Scarlet Thing In You, a passionate love song with great imagery that almost, but not quite merits a place amongst his great songs.

Wild Birds Flock To Me has a complex arrangement and interesting tempo changes, but Huuvola is the real gem of this album. At last his divine voice gets to shine on a great melody line and a delicious blend of instruments for an eerie, transcendent feel. The title track has a spoken vocal introduction and a weird instrumental mix to make it quite an experimental and unusual arrangement.

I am a great fan of Murphy's but Cascade doesn't leave a strong impression. The problem might be the absence of memorable tunes and catchy hooks. With the exception of Huuvola, none of the tracks here match his greatest songs like Indigo Eyes, Canvas Beauty or Time Has Nothing To Do With It.
