5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, sad, lovely album, 16 Jun 2009
By 
This review is from: Wait For Me (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! :-)

Hmm maybe I was a bit hard on Moby with my review.

Maybe a wee bit! But then we're all entitled to our opinions :-) Hopefully the album will grow on you...

I was restricted to what I could put due to the 1000 word limit and the fact that there are 16 songs to describe! It is growing on me but some of the songs still get on my nerves (Study War, Ghost Return, Wait for Me, etc as I feel they could have been made better (although of course that is only my opinion like you said). I mean don't get me wrong, I love Moby and have followed his music for many years, but the album is lacking something and I can't quite put my finger on it. I still have it pre-ordered though. The additional track on itunes called Grit sounds superb from the 30secs I've heard of it.

My review was just based upon initial reactions, so we'll see what I think when the dust settles! I wasn't even sure which track was which as i listened to them all in one. I just liked the overall seamless quality, found it very cohesive and just basically the kind of 'vibe' I'm looking for in my music right now. It hit the spot! I had preordered the album on here but might have to cancel and just get from itunes instead, like the thought of bonus tracks and commentary - although I always miss the tangibility of physical CDs...

I'm sure Amazon won't like me for saying this but HMV have an exclusive 2 disc edition which has a few more songs on i.e. reprises and different versions. I've ordered that and I'm going to just buy the 2 exclusive songs from itunes seperately. I'm sure Moby will release the commentary at some stage on his website or something as his past couple of CDs had opendisc technology with commentaries and other things.

Wow, I didn't know there was a two disc edition. Thanks for the heads up, my friend - I won't tell amazon if you don't ;-)

Got my album today mate from HMV (3 days early, yay). Have you received yours yet? All I can say is that the album is definitely a grower :P
