All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Peter Murphy took six years in between his fifth and sixth solo albums, although the Recall EP and the live effort Alive Just for Love captured what would eventually come next. His 1995 release Cascade tested his dark rock & roll roots while adding musical elements of the Eastern world. It was stylishly optimistic and sonically gorgeous, typical Murphy. By the new millennium, he reinvented himself. Dust marked his spanking new sound, naturally and tastefully.

All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
Peter Murphy took six years in between his fifth and sixth solo albums, although the Recall EP and the live effort Alive Just for Love captured what would eventually come next. His 1995 release Cascade tested his dark rock & roll roots while adding musical elements of the Eastern world. It was stylishly optimistic and sonically gorgeous, typical Murphy. By the new millennium, he reinvented himself. Dust marked his spanking new sound, naturally and tastefully. Murphy and world instrumentalist Mercan Dede went for a vast mix of prog rock, trance, and classical music on Dust. Murphy's lyrical depth transforms into individual dreamscapes, particularly on the tribal beats of "Things to Remember." Murphy's spoken-word chant tangos the song's chorus for Dust to rouse a raw desire. The rhythm escalates with a backing section made of distinguished Turkish and Canadians musicians. Violinist Hugh Marsh and jazz bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma guide Murphy's lyrical visions to a higher, spiritual place. "Your Face" is a swaggering mix of electronic textures, hauntingly similar to the dark beauty of Murphy's first album, Should the World Fail to Fall Apart. Older tracks "My Last Two Weeks" and the epilogue of "Subway" are reworked as well. Murphy has bravely restructured the simplicities of each song, introducing a massy richness. Dust itself materializes into a new chapter for Murphy. He's crafted a successful solo career to his own liking, never sticking to one formula. Dust is a stunning look into his exotic, sharp imagination and a vibrant effort for those who've watched him evolve.

    huzzah!

    Hmm, I see I'm the first person to review this album. You're probably reading this, holding your Visa card tight as you consider very carefully whether or not to cough up the twenty or so bucks for the latest Peter Murphy album. Well, it would be easy to say, YOU FOOL! ORDER THIS ALBUM OR FACE EVIL SATAN HEAD BITEY!!, but I know a couple of people besides myself who own this album and not all of them are very pleased with it. I, personally, love this album, and so does a friend of mine. Yup, just one other person besides myself. The other two people I know who have heard this album loathe it with all of their being. Why? Well, it really depends on what kind of Murph fan you are. Honestly, I don't get why Bauhaus purists don't like this album. It doesn't sound that different from "Bela" if they had added some middle eastern influence. Although I didn't really think any of Peter's solo stuff strayed very far from the Bauhaus sound. He just took the Bauhaus sound and layered it and texturized it and maybe even, dare I say, made it better. This album is a true work of ambient goth art. It's very middle eastern-worldbeat- industrial sounding, but it doesn't even go near going all Sting on your @ss, thank god. It's got this otherwordly, smooth, smoky kind of sexiness about it. He took the next step forward from Cascade. And also, may I add that it's spiritual, but it never gets annoying or preachy. It's just art. So, you know what, evil satan head bitey aside, you should really buy this album. It's a magical, mystical, sensual experience.
