After the dreadful 'Hotel' I took a break from buying Moby's music, assuming it was all downhill from here. Wrong! As an album this feels more like a complete package than even the god-like genius of 'Play' or '18' as it feels almost like a perfect night out with the up tempo songs leading in to some slower tracks towards the end. I'd love to hear this live, but will settle for annoying the neighbours on a constant basis with the CD.
This album is absolutely great. Its such a fab dance album and it really does represent a good night out.
My favourite tracks have to be 1. Ooh Yeah 2. Everyday Its 1989 3. Disco Lies
Hope Moby goes on tour very very soon!!! Cos the tracks that are on this album amongst previous favourites from other albums would make such a great concert.
Marks out of 10? I'd say a good 8
all in one package, you're out, you're dancing, you're having fun, you're chilling out after at home, this album takes you on the full journey, its fabulous and gets better and better everytime you play it.
Moby is very much either a love or hate guy, and this album is unlikely to win any new fans. 2008 has seen great dance releases from Hot Chip, Pete Lunn and The Whip so how does this compare? Well aside from some tracks which would be better left in 1989 it does boast plenty of new classic Moby moments. The openening 3 tracks all all great, as are 'Sweet Apocalypse', 'Mothers of The Night' and 'Live For Tommorow'. Expect to hear them on many a TV show or advert. The forays into old skool rave and dance seem a little pointless, when you can
get the real thing on Moby's early albums. So just enough to keep Moby fans happy for the time being.
This latest album sees Moby return to his early work. It does have a slightly dated sound to it, though it is catchier
than his last album HOTEL. Thankfully, he doesn't sing on this album. My favourite track has to be I LOVE TO MOVE IN HERE, SWEET APOCALYPSE comes a close second.
