3.0 out of 5 stars Cool Middle Eastern Vibe BUT...., April 26, 2002
This review is from: Dust (Audio CD)
If you were hoping for another "Deep", "Holy Smoke" or "Cascade" - you may be in for a disappointment. But not a complete one:
"Dust" is interesting in its own way: it has a dark Middle Eastern vibe that makes for an enjoyable listen; it's somewhat of a "mood piece". What I miss, however, are the memorable melodies of Murphy's previous releases; there's nothing along the lines of, for example, "Indigo Eyes" (in my opinion one of the most beautiful rock songs of all time). Most of the songs are 6-8 minutes in length and the instrumentation is often more predominant than Murphy's singing. Also, this is what - the third release in a row with some version of "Subway" on it? A studio version of "My Last Two Weeks" from "Alive Just For Love" is also included. Enough rehashing of the old stuff.
If you're a Murphy fan, pick up a copy of "Dust". I can imagine this one growing on me with repeated listenings. If you're a Murphy newbie, check out "Deep" or "Wild Birds" - his greatest hits album.
