Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

Moby-Go: The Very Best of Moby


None November 30th, 2006

In the liner notes for this Christmas-ready career-retrospective disc, Moby writes he's baffled he's had a career at all, claiming he's "just a weird bald guy who makes music in his bedroom." While that's true, he's also the one who helped propel electronica from club-only marginalization into a viable art form. Say what you will about his ubiquitous 1999 blockbuster "Play," but therein lie rock-solid melodies beyond those being sampled. If he'll never repeat "Play"'s success, it's because he's not interested in remaking it, and the 16-song "Go" demonstrates his ever-maturing range.
 
The title track and a live "Feeling So Real" showcase his early, loop-reliant years, while "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters" remains a moving, majestic soundscape. The true new track here' "New York, New York," featuring Debbie Harry' isn't one of Moby's brightest moments, but as "Go" shows, he's not lacking in that department.
