Well, I have listened to Peter Murphy's music from the beginnings with Bauhaus, thru Dali's Car, and his solo work... This "Best Of" compilation, is some of his best work as a solo artist, but as another reviewer noticed, it is heavily weighted to the later part of his career (especially Cascade). Don't get me wrong, some of the selections are rare gems if you do not already own them on the original albums. One of my favorite, yet often overlooked tracks, Final Solution, makes it onto this compilation, as to the expected Indigo Eyes and Cuts You Up, two songs that are still played both in clubs and on the radio, true classics...
Songs I wish made it on the album but didnt, "Line between the Devil's Teeth", His Box (Dali's Car), and (not-so)surprisingly, nothing from Bauhaus.
I saw the tour that coincided with this release, and it was quite good, all accoustic, intimate, and as always, the "dark god's" voice was perfect.
I do think this is a bad choice by Beggar's Banquet as far as the songs go, nothing new, no alternative cuts, but for someone new to Peter Murphy, this is a great starting point to a long and wonderfull career.
