Moby goes punk. Sort of. This is, mostly, a collection of great, abrasive rock songs. It is difficult to see quite where it fits into the Moby canon, but who cares when the music is this good. Obviously inspired, at least in part, by Joy Division, it is an album that I return to often. Just to add to the confusion the first CD is bookended by gentle, viola accompanied instrumentals and the second CD is an effective foray into quite mood music. Not everybody liked Moby leaving dance music so far behind on this album, but I discovered him via this record and I still play it regularly. I recommend it to any rock fan and to open minded fans of Play and 18 who would like to hear something a bit different from Moby.
