Well, here it is, the DELUXE edition. The last couple of years I am waiting for these extra editions and not buying the single versions.
Destroyed DELUXE contains two cds and one dvd (same as the DELUXE Wait for me) and it has a nice booklet with art pictures taken from Moby. About Wait for Me, I thought it was the last kind of flowing music of Moby and he will surprised us with a new kind of Moby music, like Play more than a decade ago. When I first hear Destroyed I thought, oh no, same old tracks. But listen carefully, you can hear some great tracks like The low hum and After. Especially the last one, it is almost a soundtrack of a very excitement movie. About The low hum you can hear the voice of Emily Zuzik and more tracks with hear would be appreciate, what a great vocie and what a great song.
The 55-min BONUS disc is different than the last editions. This is no ambient bonus disc. There are three tracks in different versions previously released on the first cd. Most of the tracks are more up-tempo. I believe they are more kind of B-side tracks. They are not that great. It is more like a continuing of the music on the first cd. And here is the difficulty of rating this album. If I compare Destroyed with Wait for Me and Hotel is a great album and I would give it a 4 star rating. However, if I compare the DELUXE editions I am little bit disappointed. Perhaps because of my high expectations of the previously released albums.
If you are a big Moby fan, this is a great collectible item. It is also nice if you were one of those festivals mentioned on the cd cover. There is some footage on the dvd.
If you just have a couple cds of Moby, get the single edition.
