Before I write this review, I must admit that I have never listened to Moby's previous work bar of course all the great singles I've seen on T.V.
Perhaps after I have done so I might change my standing on this record. But I really have to say, the first time I played this album, I was totally moved by it! It was exactly what I wanted, its groovy and relaxing. Every track just allows u to simply melt away.
I feel a slight reference to Pink Floyd on some tracks. Some of these tunes particularly 'In this world' make me think about them and no doubt they have influenced Moby. And thats not a bad thing because this album has shown me what a great talent this man is. This album is brilliant!
One thing that is a little annoying is the fact that Moby only sings on three tracks, the best of which is 'Extreme Ways'. All of them are really good.
Another thing I do feel is that no track really stands out. They all just seem to blend into one brilliant piece of chill out music.
This record does the trick for me. You can just do what ever you want to get up to and have this album playing in the background.
Alternatively you can just sit back and let this grand bunch of '18' tunes let u forget about lifes worries and just melt away. Moby lets you reach the stars and like he says 'We are all made of stars'.
5 stars in my book...... but then again......it is my book!

Moby is the antichrist. I don't need to tell you about 1999's gigamillion, original selling 'Play' do I? Well at least it was original once, before it was licensed to 417 adverts, before it came bundled with every coffee table sold in the country, and even I, a fan of maverick genius, got sick of him.

18 is more of the same. For the first time in his career, Moby has stopped moving. Every album prior to this was a enormous leap forward in style and content; be it 1990's minimalist house of 'Instinct', 1995's eclectic ambient gabba rave of 'Everything Is Wrong', 1996's psychotic-metal 'Animal Rights', or 1997's gentle, electronic 'The End Of Everything', Moby was always trying something new, moving somewhere. And now he's reached the end of his journey. He sold about 6 million of 'Play', and only a fool, or someone with integrity, would dare mess with the formula.

18 is a sequel to 'Play', and like all sequels it contains the same ingredients rehashed in a slightly different way to fool the people. Sampled gospel vocals rebuilt over mellow grooves? Check. Guest vocals from anonymous session musicians? Check. A complete lack of excitement throughout the whole of the second half? You betcha.

There are a handful of great tracks on here - the title track '18' and 'Look Back In' are interesting excursions into a territory he visited briefly on 'The End Of Everything', but other than that, this isn't a record that has any sense of urgency, vision, or personality in it.

In the booklet he claims he has 3,000 unreleased songs. 3,000! And this is the best he can do? Anodyne, uninspired, catatonic repetition of an idea that was interesting in 1999, but now just seems oddly past its sell by date.

Having read other reviews about how this is simply a watered down version of 'Play', I had to write my own viewpoint.
'Moby' did not set out to explore the extremities of the musical universe with this album. He wanted to create a nice consistent album. That is what this album is. If Moby created a completely different album people would write how it is not as good and say he should have stuck to the same formula. But he chose the other alternative; to draw on his previous efforts and create an album on similar lines. But he still gets criticised for not being experimental. Why is this? Moby has searched for the type of music that he likes playing most and that is popular. He has found it.
'We Are All Made Of Stars' is a great upbeat opener for '18'. Quite different from any other song on the album, Moby mixes the effects of numerous instruments and his vocals with a solid beat. Next is 'In This World', a typical Moby song combining blues with a lovely swirling melody. As already mentioned by other reviewers this has a hint of 'Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad' in it. But that isn't a bad thing. All artists create similar songs. The only way you can avoid this is to change musical genre after writing every song, and what you'd end up with would be a mess.
'Signs of Love' is a personal favourite of mine. Moby provides gentle warming vocals against a beautiful drifting backdrop.
'Extreme Ways' is a more powerful record than most on this album, yet it still retains the subtlety.
Making a brief return to his disco days, 'Jam For The Ladies' sees Moby creating a more upbeat track. Mid-album, this acts as a nice interlude between the predominant blues theme. 'At Least We Tried' is a good example of this theme. The vocals are very soulful, and the melody is simple but effective.

Well, thats a phrase used by many a music critic, so i'll borrow it for my own use i think!
And, not a truer word said, for this album is one that u will either leave in the cd player/changer, always grab when u need to escape the world, or just let spin when u want to relax and unwind.
The album is more from Moby's amazing talents of film score music, and lends itself to the dramatic mood music style, far more than PLAY did. The tracks follow one another perfectly and it all comes together like a movie soundtrack in itself.
PLAY made u sit up and take notice of what was happening, 18 makes u sit back and listen to what is happening.
Pop this disc in your player, put your feet up and let it absorb you.
Jon...........
