4.0 out of 5 stars The clue is in the title 29 Dec 2003
By T. SMEDLEY VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Unlike a great many people, I got into Moby around the time of 'Everything is Wrong', in the days before 'Play'. I had been aware of 'Go', of course, but only started being aware of Moby's back catalogue in '94-5. Hence, buying this album as well as 'Moby', 'Ambient' and 'Rare' was a lot harder (and more expensive) in those days!
This album is a collection of early recordings/singles (hence the title), and though variable in quality shows Moby more at the cutting edge (particularly bearing in mind it's all 1991 and earlier) and a lot more house orientated than his current output.
My particular favourites are 'Party Time', 'Permanenet Green' and the classic 'Voodoo Child', which in hindsight all point to things that were to come....
This is the album that fills gaps in Moby's later development, showing a far more dance-floor orientated artist, and if you like this album I thoroughly recommend 'Rare: The Collected B-Sides', which offers often better mixes of some of the tracks available here and on the debut album 'Moby'.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's good, but Play is far better. 6 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first got into Moby when I bought Play, and since then I've been addicted to his music. This album just doesn't live up to his standards, though. Rock The House is good, but it's not as good as Bodyrock.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As The Moby CD 25 May 2001
By Manny Ramirez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have listened to this album a couple of times and it just hasn't affected me like some of Moby's other stuff. I agree partially with reviewer Josh Taft (a pretty good reviewer, especially on Techno) that Moby's 2 best CDs may have been his first, Moby, and his last in Play. Where I disagree with him is that I think Everything Is Wrong and I Like to Score are just as good or better than Moby with Play being the unquestioned masterpiece. However, Early Underground is not better than Moby and the tracks on this album are not as memorable to me as the ones on Moby or Everything Is Wrong or I Like to Score or Play. I guess I have gotten spoiled by Play and since I feel that EIW, ILTS, and Moby are also solid albums this one is sorta of a letdown. Tracks like UHF3, Voodoo Child, Barracuda, and Mobility are the ones that I like the best. The version of Go here does not include the Twin Peaks "elements" that would make this song his most well-known. This version is still good, but you've been warned that when you listen to this song that it won't be the version you've been expecting or the best version of this song.
Maybe in time, my opinion of this album will change, but for now although it's a solid techno album, it simply is not as good as some of the other stuff he has done. This album is still a must-own for any Moby fan and for die-hard techno fans, but for those who are just getting into Moby's stuff you might want to borrow someone's CD and listen to a couple of tracks before deciding to buy. I don't regret buying it--it's just one of those CDs I have that I don't listen to alot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2 Feb 2003
By "mfpb4000" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't see how people can not like this CD. I mean, obviously, you probably don't want to start with this if you've just bought Play or 18 and now you want to venture into Moby's past - if that's what you want, I reccomend you look at Everything Is Wrong. But a prequel to Play this ain't.
What it IS, however, is a bunch of GREAT songs, including the original Go (which everyone seems to hate except me), UHF3 (which features great early 90's piano); Voodoo Child, one of my favorite Moby songs of all time, as well as other quirks like Move the Colors and Permanent Green... even M-Four, the last track, is a great album ender. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Underground is everything Moby, and techno, is about. 9 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album rises to the top as a defining techno compilation. For those of us around the techno, rave, dance, or club scene several years ago (the turn of the 90s), Moby's music is the embodiment of that atmosphere. This album is essential for anyone interested in what "early underground" and the early rave scene are all about. This album is fantastic, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone who holds any interest in the evolution of techo, disc jockeys, the dance music culture and/or the underground rave scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars It will grow on you and you'll be surprised to what extent 18 April 2006
By B Throwsnaill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is probably one of my all time favorite albums. I think it's easily Moby's most psychedelic work. It epitomizes what I imagine the rave scene was all about (imagine since I wasn't really a participant back in the day). If you listen to it expecting certain things you might be disappointed. It's raw and kind of elemental in its delivery. On it's surface it might seem simplistic. If you listen long enough you realize, however, that each sound is lovingly chosen, each incongruent rhythm expertly rendered to contribute to an otherworldy, trippy feeling. It's the type of techno I'd want to do a Shamanistic dance to (if I were into that sort of thing).
