moby UNPLUGGED (sort of...)
on 2 October 2013
Well, what can I say about this the Amazon Artist Lounge EP... On first listen, it's a bit like hearing moby doing an UNPLUGGED set. the songs are stripped back to their core which if you're a fan of moby's acoustic guitar tracks you'll really love this EP. The new songs hold up well... the new album "Innocents" is where all 3 of these songs come from.
"A Case For Shame" is a fantastic slab of pure pop music greatness and the vocals are truly haunting.
"Tell Me" is another decent tune.
"The Perfect Life" is a really puzzling song to me - it's a bit too "I'm a hippy and everything is great" for me but it's cleverly arranged and complimented by a catchy gospel chorus.
I'm a bit biased with this review as I have everything moby has released on CD/DVD etc... been a fan since the early 90's back in his rave music days... obviously back then I was too young to go to raves but loved seeing his transition from a small bedroom producer to a global music icon. Nowadays, Richard Hall (that's his real name) can do no wrong! even his punk rock album "animal rights" was fantastic (even though all the press and media critics hated it).
