BBC Review

Moby claims his ninth album was inspired by a David Lynch speech about how creativity for its own sake is a good thing. This disregard of commercial necessity may seem unlikely for the popular dance guru who allowed every song on 1999's Play to be used on an advert, TV or film soundtrack, but he mostly sticks with the game plan.

There are exceptions: a couple of future dinner party staples pepper this set, with the airy synth waves of Slow Light sounding especially clichéd. Study War is worse - a tired mix of minor piano chords and croaky old political speech samples that's just worthy sonic potpourri from the man who invented it.

Yet when the world's most famous vegan is not recycling his own work Wait For Me is an elegant, thoughtful record. Shot In The Back Of The Head features lurching backwards loops and desert-noir guitar wailing; Mistake sees our man vocally mimic a NYC neighbour amid early REM longing; while Scream Pilots pairs Bruce Kaphan and Brian Eno's panoramic soundscapes in tender fashion.

Commendable as it is for Moby to take the hit-eschewing road, the 16 tracks here are epitomised by Isolate, a slightly woozy Boards of Canada-esque number that trots along as pleasantly and inoffensively as an afternoon country stroll.

It would have been more fun to hear the bod who made the killer rave anthem Go take on dance music again. Better still, he could've taken things properly Lynchian and made the entire album a nonsensical dream sequence with a backwards-talking dwarf on it. --Lou Thomas

More Grand Sounds From The Master! This guy has been around for many years and yet he still delivers emotional moods through the electronic vein. This is typical moby with his chilled out moments and uptempo beats with chilled lyrics. Moving stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, sad, lovely album 16 Jun 2009
By Amoyan
Format:Audio CD
This is just a quickie review. I've just listened to 'Wait For Me' on npr.org and I absolutely LOVE this album; a real return to form after the past couple of Moby releases. I don't agree with the first reviewer at all: I don't think Moby was "trying too hard", in fact quite the opposite, I really get the feeling (which is confirmed by blog posts he has written) that with this album he set aside his desire to produce what other people might want him to and really just made this for himself, for the sheer pleasure of creativity. It's not a particularly commercial or 'pop' oriented record at all: it's very laid back and meditative. The atmosphere is remarkable: it's delicate, sad, mournful, yet quietly uplifting and joyous at the same time. And really really achingly beautiful......

I highly recommend this album and couldn't wait to preorder my copy. So far its my album of the year! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars exceeds expectations 19 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Most musicians have one inspired debut album which is always hard to follow and they either churn out music using that initial formula or experiment themselves into obscurity , Moby's sound was instantly digestable , argeeable , recognisable , so briliant but over played in commercials one always wondered how can he follow that , moby's music has always left me and does leave me wanting more but i can live without him trying to recreate the same old sound and that must be difficult for musicians especially musicians who create soundscapes and so often their trade mark sound filters through and the listener thinks ''ive heard this one before but its not as good as the original'' .. I was expecting to find that on this cd but i am pleasantly surprised to discover that moby has pulled a few gems out of the hat , i can,t hear too much of the moby formula yet somehow you know its moby (obviously) , like some other reviews have pointed out its a gorgeous soundscape , sad yet uplifting , its nothing short of brilliant and beautiful , the vocals excellent , a standout track for me is ''mistake'' amazing vocals , a cd laced with gorgeous tracks at this stage of moby's career with his amazing output and back catalogue , the whole thing seems inspired and fresh , one cd i dont regret buying before hearing any sample tracks ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy Musical Journey 19 Aug 2009
Format:MP3 Download
What a fabulous album - have listened to it over and over and - just fallen more in love with it each time - can feel my blood pressure levelling to a non morbid rate almost immediately I press play! Poigniant lyrics, haunting melodies and the most unusual characteristic voices all add to a rich, diverse and dreamy journey - with that wee edge of sombreness in sone of those lyrics. Plug in, lock the doors, turn off the 'fone and let yourself go. Totally brilliant!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ethereal, But Not Terribly Inventive 16 July 2009
By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Moby has never been afraid to experiment, so this latest offering promised a more mellow Moby sound. The opening song, "Division" is very pleasant, with ethereal mood music while "jltf-1" is light and monotonous. However, ""jltf" redeems "jltf-1" with a nice vocal by Melody Zimmer. The album jumps around from a few good tracks to bland monotonous noise like, "Pale Horses" and "Stock Radio" which is nothing more than 55 seconds of `noise'. The album is at the most, uneven, even if most of the songs are of a lower key than previous albums.

That's not to say all is boring about "Wait For Me". "Shot In The Back of the Head" is an ethereal mind trip that is almost hypnotic. The title track, "Wait For Me" is a nice solid song with great heartfelt lyrics from Kelli Scarr. "A Seated Night" is one of the more inventive keyboard pieces with a bluesy scatting by Starr Blackshere, but the other male vocalist (not noted in the booklet) is distracting with his repetitive southern-style preaching. But not all is lost here. "Mistake" and "Scream Pilots" are good pop rock songs that are solidified with a solid drumbeat and nice guitar work. The album closes with "Isolate" which uses a myriad of instruments to induce a pleasant plaintive song.

Unfortunately, there are no songs like, "When Its Cold Out I'd Like To Die" or "Porcelain", but about a third of the album is worth a listen. Unfortunately, this could have been a great album for Moby if he experimented a bit more with the ethereal keyboards range that are so prominent here. It's not great or terrible in any sense. There are just too many songs that have the same backing electronic keyboards with little variation. Hang in there. Moby will surprise us next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complexity through simplicity 24 Jun 2009
By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
A decade after the chronically over-rated, but actually quite good "Play", Moby, who has been commercially treading water for no small time, furthered by the niche,one-dimensional, and somewhat boring "Last Night" last year, branches out with his first album on his own label, the unanticipated "Wait For Me."

And it is, amongst all other things, a massive evolutionary leap away from the tedious "Last Night". Yes, it has many of the trademarks of previous Moby albums, the specific (and probably copyrighted) soft-violin-synth preset he's made his default sound for the past decade and a half. It has the same, almost predictable sad minor chords and gentle leads, the understated, minimal vocals. But also, it is most definitely a Moby album in the classic vein of his previous "18" and "Play". Lyrics are spartan, the melodies evoke one very particular emotion : a regretful optimism. "Pale Horses", lead single, is a low-key, low-tempo semi-hymn. It builds on an uncomplicated set of notes and lyrics that, through repetition, explore the notions and idea within the few words - "put me on the train, send me back" through all the possible intepretations that those words could offer. There is a depth and complexity in the simple. "Study War" offers a similar texture ; a plea to the achievement of a state where war is a matter of historal importance only. "The Battle will be over", is repeated, in Warholesque states, extending from a single-minded peace-hymn to an aspiration to some kind of spiritual harmony universe wide. All the colours of the Campbell Soup Can of sound in these rhythms.

Elsewhere, Moby creates almost - but not quite - identikit sonic palettes - aided and abetted by a small team of guest vocalists.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing moby
For a Moby's fan, this algum is really not amazing: only 2 or 3 songs are really interesting, but most are quite boring. Not worth to own it.
