A great chill out record,
This review is from: 18 (Audio CD)
Before I write this review, I must admit that I have never listened to Moby's previous work bar of course all the great singles I've seen on T.V.
Perhaps after I have done so I might change my standing on this record. But I really have to say, the first time I played this album, I was totally moved by it! It was exactly what I wanted, its groovy and relaxing. Every track just allows u to simply melt away.
I feel a slight reference to Pink Floyd on some tracks. Some of these tunes particularly 'In this world' make me think about them and no doubt they have influenced Moby. And thats not a bad thing because this album has shown me what a great talent this man is. This album is brilliant!
One thing that is a little annoying is the fact that Moby only sings on three tracks, the best of which is 'Extreme Ways'. All of them are really good.
Another thing I do feel is that no track really stands out. They all just seem to blend into one brilliant piece of chill out music.
This record does the trick for me. You can just do what ever you want to get up to and have this album playing in the background.
Alternatively you can just sit back and let this grand bunch of '18' tunes let u forget about lifes worries and just melt away. Moby lets you reach the stars and like he says 'We are all made of stars'.
5 stars in my book...... but then again......it is my book!
