Moby goes all French on us...,
This review is from: Slipping Away (Crier La Vie) (Audio CD)One for the Moby completest possibly, but I really like this track and would highly recommend picking up this up on both CD formats. Released in France only, to promote the recent 'best of', this is an upbeat remix of Slipping Away (produced by Manhattan Clique), with Mylene Farmer providing a rather lovely duet with Moby's lyrics.
This (red) card slip-case CD contains just two tracks as well as some 'Opendisc' technology, with which any Moby fans will now be familiar with. It leads to a video introduction by Moby in this case, together with a photo gallery, so is hardly extensive, but interesting enough.
The tracks are as follows:
1) the single version of Crier La Vie, and
2) an extended remix, or 12" version as we used to know them!
The extended version is perhaps more satisfying, the shorter always seems to end too soon and leaves me wanting more!! Great stuff, very uplifting and quite a departure from the original track (which was remixed by Manhattan Clique, as MHC). The other CD (blue) does provides better value with 4 tracks, but this is essential in my opinion for the extended version. As said above, well worth getting hold of!
Here's to some new stuff by the man...
