4.0 out of 5 stars More a completion than a companion. October 11, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Long a fan of Peter Murphy's solo work, and his legendary stint with Goth-innovators Bauhaus, I snapped up Ninth as soon as it was released. While sporting some great tracks, "I Spit Roses," "Seesaw Sway," "Secret Silk Society," I felt the album as a whole didn't quite gel, swinging between the "Cuts You Up" dynamic of earlier hits and rockier numbers that hearkened more to The Stooges than the Sufi-mystic-meets-Bowie of albums like "Dust". So I was thrilled to listen to "The Secret Bees of Ninth" and see more of the Murphy I loved on new tracks like "Gaslit" and "Rose Hunter". The new tracks, along with an extended "Secret Silk Society" and the latest single off "Ninth" (Seesaw Sway) create a strong reminder of why Murphy has endured as an artist. I think "The Secret Bees" should be seen as a completion of, rather than a companion to, "Ninth." Considering the fact that you can (digitally) purchase both the album and the EP on Amazon for less than ten bucks, I say get both and consider it as a whole. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gems! October 17, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I love the four new tracks on Secret Bees! It seems like a waste to consign them to an EP release. He said he wanted Ninth to have a more energetic feel and felt these songs weren't part of that feeling, but I wish they'd made it to the proper album. They're just too good. "Gaslit" is a new classic, perhaps better than anything on Ninth. He could have left "Velocity Bird" and "Secret Silk Society" off Ninth and made room for a couple of these. But I respect his vision and really do like Ninth...I just overthink things. :)

The offcuts for the album Ninth from 2011,and tracks that were orig recorded in 09 but were left off the album for this spectacular e.p.
some fans say this e.p. has the better tracks than the actual album and im in agreement here....top stuff! 10/10.

If American recording studios weren't so caught up with the top 40 (which in my opinion sucks) and were more like their fathers of the 60's, Peter Murphy would be on top as a great artist. His music is rich with flavor, warm and enticing. He is a man that has a gift that will never fade. I am always enriched by his music. anyone who is interested to find something outside of the top 40, should give him a try. I'm never disappointed.
