Peter Murphy s Ninth is his first solo album in seven years and the first since the permanent dissolution of Bauhaus in 2009. Produced by David Baron, Ninth is a culmination of where the singer has been and where he is now, all imbued with a confidence that has been Murphy s stock in trade. While countless performers and industry types bemoan the demeaning of music in current download culture, Murphy s only concern is continuing to connect with his audience with unparalleled honesty.
There s a sophisticated energy and psychic urgency to tracks like "Seesaw Sway," "Slowdown" and "Memory Go." Equally exciting are moments like "Velocity Bird," where Murphy gets his swagger on in the same wild kingdom where Iggy Pop s "streetwalking cheetah" prowled; the rocking "Peace To Each," where the singer ramps up his sinister quotient a few notches; the slow grooving head-nodder "Uneven & Brittle," and the brooding, atmospheric noir of "Secret Silk Society." On the convex, Ninth also features moments of warm poignancy, like the lover-comforting "Never Fall Out" and the melancholy closing track, "Crème de la Crème." But it s the album s first single, "I Spit Roses," that reconciles Murphy s melodic sophistication with his resignation toward the fate of Bauhaus

I've been a huge fan of Peter Murphy's since I saw him in concert in the 1980s. He's a mesmerizing performer live and a fascinating and complex musician. Read morePublished 11 months ago by G. B. Brown
Excellent sounding Vinyl version.
Velocity Bird is the only bizarre track here that I could do without, but the rest of the album is amazing.
This is a very good album. It's strong, vibrant and hypnotic. A must for P.M. fans. This is his strongest work since Casade. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Dan

Awesome album! Incredible works! His best yet!
This album is full of tone and full of attitude and emotion. Not what you would expect from Peter Murphy, at all. Read more
I was happy with this. I didn't feel like the last three were strong releases and was starting to worry. He needed a good band, and for me, this works just fine. Read morePublished on May 12, 2013 by postpunkweaselman
