  • Peter Murphy's sixth solo album (counting 2001's live ALIVE JUST FOR LOVE) finds the singer-songwriter aging gracefully into the role of the elder statesman of goth. As Murphy gets mellower, his vocal debt to Bryan Ferry becomes more pronounced, and the songs on DUST are nearly as mellow as Ferry's suave, post-Roxy Music work. An increased interest in world music informs much of the album, with Middle Eastern and North African melodies and instruments coloring the songs, which on the whole are delicate, meandering things that don't hold to traditional concepts like verse-chorus-verse structure (or choruses at all, much of the time).
  • The arrangements are rich and layered, especially on the complex "Fake Sparkle or Golden Dust" and a superior new version of "Subway" (originally released on 1995's CASCADE) that features a lovely, spidery violin line echoing Murphy's uncharacteristically wistful vocal. Stylistically akin to David Sylvian's increasingly ambient post-Japan work, DUST is dark-hued but not gloomy, and probably the prettiest album of Murphy's career.
Professional Reviews
Q (8/02, p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Combines fluid Eastern rhythms, trance beats and his...still winning Bowie-croon. It's perverse, contrary and surprisingly engaging."

Alternative Press (7/02, p.88) - 7 out of 10 - "...An emotive, evocative, electrifying mystery..."
