While 'Love Hysteria' contains many scintillating Murphy moments, 'Deep' is more consistent; every song is up to snuff with 5 or 6 being absolutely magnificent. The disc opens with "Deep Ocean Vast Sea", a cleaned up Goth pop song featuring a rich bass, steady beat and Murphy switching between his smooth, deep voice and a punk shriek - a great opener for certain. "Shy" and "Crystal Wrists" are both very good following a similar format to the opener. Up next is the lovely, acoustic ballad "Marlene Dietrich's Favourite Poem" with wonderful, touching lyrics - maybe Peter's best ballad and a majestic tribute to the legendary cabaret singer. "Seven Veils" is solid but not a standout on such a strong album. "The Line Between The Devil's Teeth (And That Which Cannot Be Repeat)" not only has the longest title ever, it also happens to be a reinterpretation of "In the Flat Field", a song he recorded with Bauhaus. The music is almost intact but the lyrics have been changed up; this was Deep's 1st single. Next came Murphy's most popular stateside single, the near perfect pop song "Cuts You Up". I compare this song with The Cure's "Just Like Heaven" as perfect pop songs by epic artists. "A Strange Kind of Love" was the 3rd single from the album and is every bit as strong as the others. The song is both bittersweet and haunting; it will stick with you. The album ends in somewhat weak fashion tacking on 2 versions of "Roll Call"; the song is OK and has the biggest beat on Deep but feels oddly out of place to me.
Deep may be Murphy's best, neck and neck with its predecessor, but this is certainly his most complete. A must-have even for non-Goths.

I bought Deep after hearing Cut's You Up on the radio. I'm not a big Bauhaus fan, nor into Goth, I just instantly loved it.

When I bought it I had no idea how important this album would be. For me this album is very personal. It became a journey into myself, it presented a different way to look at my mistakes, to face my addictions, to see life and love in a diffent way. Every time I listen to it, which has to be in the thousands by now, I am given a healthy shot of encouragement and feeling of genuine triumph.

Listen to the lyrics closely and you to will have a jouney into self-realization, into the importance of love and most importantly (to me) a bridge to self forgiveness. There is a fine line between winning and losing the battle with temptation, between self hatred and redemption.

It's as if Peter Murphy is looking into his soul. He exposes his weaknesses and strengths so as to give you a new perspective into your own.

There are a loy of albums I love, this is more than a collection of songs..... It's very hard to express my feelings about the depth and meaning I found here. I just recomend you buy it and find the your own message, they are brilliantly presented.

"Deep" is one of those rare CDs that is sequenced perfectly -- the music has such depth and complexity, both musically and lyrically, that it moves from the melancholy and subtle to the celebratory and joyous in such a skilled manner that they are revealed to be all part of the same seamless vision.
While the single "Cuts You Up" is what the album is known for popularly, the three-song-sequence of "Crystal Wrists", "Marlene Dietrich" and "Seven Veils" is the best collections of songs I have ever heard. Period.
This album will be a favorite for many years to come.

After the end of the amazing "Bauhaus", two of the guys went on to form "Love And Rockets", and "Peter Murphy" went on to give us many solo albums. Of those albums, I believe "Deep" is his best. Not only does it include his biggest hit "Cuts You Up", but also "Deep Ocean Vast Sea", and "A Strange Kind Of Love", both of which are excellent. "Seven Veils" is great too. Almost every track here is enjoyable. Of course his voice is what makes half these songs. It's usually quite deep and very "goth" sounding, much like "Andrew Eldritch" from "Sisters Of Mercy". I would keep this before his "best of" album.

No death-laughs-forever, world-won't-listen, prince-of-darkness persona permeates what is Murphy's finest solo release, and "Deep" contains a brilliant collection of tracks that reveal truly distinctive melodies, yet are linked together by a universal thread that seems to me to be the result of a commitment to bring about a level of resonant depth to the production lacking from his sophomore effort, "Love Hysteria". The result is easily his most cohesive recording, yielding what are often his most universally recognizable songs, " Marlene Deitrich's Favorite Poem", "Cuts You Up", and "A Strange Kind Of Love", the latter two introducing Murphy to a much wider audience due to the heavy rotation both enjoyed on MTV in 1990 and '91.

And much of this can be attributed to his decision to continue to collaborate with Paul Statham, their level of chemistry naturally undergoing a stage of evolution that extended and refined the most positive elements of what worked best from "Love Hysteria". Supple, heavy basslines undergird both "Seven Veils" and "Cuts You Up" and push the former forward with an insistent pace and the latter with a fluidly aggressive tempo.
