    As happens with our pop idols, Peter Murphy has grown old. This is not to say that his music has lost its listenability, or that his wit has lost its edge, but Murphy as an artist has matured into a new creature on CASCADE. There's introspection in these songs, and a certain calm in the lyrics. Musically, this album presents Peter Murphy as sophisticated as ever. Each of the 11 tracks here is a drop of sweet ear candy, and while there's some standard issue Murphy wailing here, nowhere does he lash out in angst as on his earlier albums.
    Noteworthy tracks include "Mirror to My Woman's Mind" and "Gliding Like a Whale." Also elegant in form and function alike are "Wild Birds," and "The Scarlet Thing in You." Refreshingly honest and reassuringly true to Peter Murphy's own theatrical style, CASCADE heralds a new era of music from the aging gods of the goth pantheon.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (6/95, p.126) - 3 Stars - Good - "...focuses itself on a neatly-tailored guitar rock decorated with fleeting moments of ethnic percussion and ambient textures, with composer Michael Brook adding atmospheric depth to many of the tracks....a highly melodic affair confirming Murphy's talent for sweeping, epic rock."
