Moby

This leaked earlier in the week, and it's just fantastic. It harkens back to his earlier dance/techno oriented days, and while some might want to compare it to Play, to me it's a throwback to Everything Is Wrong. It moves along at such a breakneck pace that it's over before you know it.

I've only gone through it once, but I'm loving it so far.

Yay!

I love EIW and especially "Feeling So Real"!

I'm excited now!

I've listened to it a few more times now, and perhaps it's more of a cross between Everything Is Wrong and Play. Elements of both albums throughout.

It's a great disc.

A week or two ago during my commute, I heard a dj on a rock station talking about how Moby had been into their station on the previous day, hung out and appeared on both the afternoon and evening show talking about the new album, among other things. The dj had great things to say about it, and felt that it's destined for a lot of success.

Good to hear that it's superior to Hotel. It seemed like everyone hated that record.

So far, 5 tracks in, it's way more "Play" than "Everything Is Wrong". And I haven't heard anything as fast or techno-y as "Feeling So Real", yet.

But I'm still liking it a lot. After all, "Play" was great. So sounding like "Play" is not a bad thing at all.

Yeah, I guess it probably is closer to Play, now that I've listened to it thoroughly. Although songs like I See The Stars, with the piano going, make me think of past tunes such as Everytime You Touch Me.

My favorite song by far is the opener, Ooh Yeah.

Hasn't been much publicity for this release in Australia, which is a shame. Will check out the album in the coming weeks.

The album reminds me of Everything Is Wrong in another way - structure. Lots of upbeat, fast songs throughout most of the album, and then it slows down towards the end with some beautiful pieces. Sweet Apocalypse and Mothers Of The Night back to back is fantastic.

Going to have a listen now. I didn't even know he had an album coming out until I read a review for it last week (and they only gave it 1/5 stars.).

1 out of 5 stars? Wow. Not even close as far as I'm concerned. I'd give it 4 out of 5.

I know, I was a little surprised/disappointed at that myself.

Listening now Thanks for the myspace link, Fitz.
