I find myself suggesting this ablum as a first buy for my friends who are just getting into Peter's work... after this one I tend to draw them in further with "Deep" or "Dust".
After a point, it's very easy to become completely absorbed by Peter's music, and this album touches on many of his different musical ventures with fairness to many years of very fine work.
His major songs are on there "Cuts you up", "Indigo eyes",
"Subway", "Roll call" and a new "Jemal" version. Unfortunately for me,"Marlene Dietrich's favorite poem" is missing.
All his artistic talents on one album.
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.
Again, this is a great intro cd for someone who isn't familiar with Peter Murphy's work. If you end up liking his stuff, I would highly recommend you see him perform live. He puts on a phenomenal show.

this is the album to buy if you are a hardcore peter murphy fan or even remotely curious about the work of this goth king. Read morePublished on Jan. 6 2002 by Brian R Yandle
I was elated to see that there was a new Peter Murphy album out in stores. While the song selection is fantastic, it leaves something to be desired. Read morePublished on April 11 2001 by Amanda J. Mitchell
I think this is a great showcase. Peter Murphy has one of those voices that is both frightening and beautiful, and this compilation presents the best that ten years has to offer. Read morePublished on Jan. 22 2001 by linv
I saw Peter Murphy live earlier this year and he sang, to the best of my memory, every song on this cd. I think that the compilation of songs on this cd is nigh perfect. Read morePublished on Sept. 25 2000 by Jonathan Grant
The missing link between David Bowie and Trent Reznor, the original dark prince of 'college/alternative' music, Peter Murphy and his band Bauhaus defined the so-called 'goth' sound... Read morePublished on Sept. 25 2000
Peter Murphy is one of the greatest singers ever. I love his work, especially with Dali's Car. I am disappointed to know that he is now working with Doug Deangelis, the producer... Read morePublished on Aug. 27 2000
I'm giving this album four stars because two of his most beautiful songs have been omitted: Canvas Beauty and Time Has Got nothing To Do With It. Read morePublished on July 3 2000 by Peter Uys
