Product Description

Product Description

While hailed as one of the most important musical figures since the early 90s, Moby has enjoyed great success bringing music to a mainstream audience by giving the notoriously anonymous electronic genre an identity and recognizable face. From his 1992 debut, with the massive club hit 'Go,' to the groundbreaking success of the inventive' Play', to the critical acclaim of last year's 'Hotel', Moby has become and iconic figure in the world of pop music, as well as a household name. The DELUXE EDITION features an 11-track remix CD personally compiled by Moby including the legendary 'Bodyrock' Olav Basoski remix The deluxe edition tracks are NOT available on ANY Moby full-length CD. Many of the remixes on the 2nd disc are hard to find. Several were only released as commercial 12 inch singles or on a compilation, others have only partially been featured within a megamix, and three more tracks have never been released at all! In 2007, V2 will release a single disc version of the Greatest Hits. None of the incredible content from the remix CD will be included. The deluxe edition will not be kept active indefinitely, so this is the time to maximize this great package.

It's easy to dismiss the music of this cute, vegan, bare-pated relative of Herman Melville, especially if you don't actually listen to the music and focus instead on his ultra-PC interview style or the manner in which he sold dozens of songs to commercials and film soundtracks back in Y2K. But to do so is to knee-jerkedly miss out on some very fine and innovative music by one of the most influential musicians of the last decade. With the exception of two tracks (one of them the title tune), Go is a best-of from the years that Moby's been on the V2 label, from 1999's breakthrough hit Play onward. But Play--with its uncanny reworking of field recordings with playful beats and ambient textures--remains the artist's finest moment. A full disc of remixes and a smattering of unreleased songs (including a rad new number with Debbie Harry on guest vocals) make this an essential purchase for rabid fans. And, as a judicious selection of Play-era material is included alongside the finest songs from Moby's subsequent albums, 18 and Hotel, this is also the perfect entry point for the more casual fan. --Mike McGonigal

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Better than you would expect... Nov. 25 2006
Format:Audio CD
Compilation cd's never do the artist justice, however... Moby's "BEST OF" comp satisfies both the casual, and the die-hard fans.

Whittling down someone's career into sixteen tracks is always a tough task, nevertheless, this package is more than a satisfactory listen. The big hits are here from PLAY, HOTEL... EVERYTHING IS WRONG... heck, you'll probably buy this, and then you'll wanna get other selections...

For the Fans, there's a full extra cd of Remixes, as well as the New Moby Track "New York, New York" featuring Debbie Harry... the video for the track is absolutely mesmerizing.

His cover of "That's when I reach for my revolver" originally done by MISSION OF BURMA isn't on this comp, although I highly suggest you check the song out, as well as his earlier album "Animal rights".

All in all, worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Best Oct. 27 2006
By JBizzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great collection showcasing some of the high points of Moby's career. All the greatest hits from rescent years including "Porcelain", "South Side", & "Go". The real cool part of this collection is the additional remix disc. Included are remix's from some of dance music's top talent such as "Mylo", "Tiesto", "Oakenfold", & "Corsten" to only name a few. You'll already have most of these if like me you've already bought his singles, but it's still nice having all these on one disc. The only gripe I have & it's a small gripe is the lack of "Hybrid" remixs on disc 2. Again, not a huge issue & definately not a deal breaker, but it woulda' been nice seeings as Hybrid's mix's of both "Southside" & "Bodyrock" blow "Basoski" & "Heller"'s mix's outta the water. All in all this collection honors Moby well. It may not have everything, but still a great jumping on point for casual listeners & anyone wanting to jump into the world of Moby.

4.0 out of 5 stars The mostly best of. Nov. 27 2006
By H3@+h - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is actually a good collection of Moby, though mostly of his work from "Play" and afterwards. Of course there's still a few flaws. It's only 61 minutes, should be a good 70. There's alot from his huge album "Play", but it's still missing "Bodyrock". It IS on the remix disc, but is nearly a different song. Also from "Play" is "South Side", but it is NOT the superior version with Gwen Stefani. Why not? Who knows. However, the new track "New York, New York" with Debbie Harry is good, and we get other big hits such as "We Are All Made Of Stars" and "Beautiful". Plus a new mix of "Go" and a live "Feeling So Real". The remix disc is a bonus for fanatics. Others might not care so much. This collection would go well with "Mobysongs 93-98". Still does the job alone though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mix CD is Great Dec 28 2006
By wildcatgoal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The remix CD is fun to listen to. It reminds me a lot of how I figure Paul Oakenfold would remix Moby's music. It's very trance techno and there are a few tracks on there that get you shakin' your b**t in the car seat a bit. The best-of CD is basically all of Moby's best songs. You can't make that CD any better unless you somehow improve Moby's original songs. Good work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moby- Go: The Very Best of Moby Nov. 29 2006
By J. Dunkel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The newest collection from Moby consisits most of the singles that made airwaves and television in the late nineties til now. "Go: The Very Best of Moby" contains several songs from his last three albums- "Play," "18," and "Hotels"- in which I already own all three albums, and all are very excellent music achievements. But what caught my eye was mostly the remix disc, and that he had a new single and updated remix of "Go." As for the review on Disc One, it is not a surprise that this highlights Moby's singles from the "Play" album until now. It includes some of my favorites such as "Natural Blues," "South Side," "We Are All Made of Stars," a different edit of "In My Heart", "Lift Me Up," "Dream About Me," and "Beautiful." The collaboration with Debra Harry on "New York, New York" seemed like an ordinary track and lacked some of the emotion Moby puts into most of his works. I wonder if it was just a left over track from one of Moby's previous albums that he didn't use. The 2006 mix of "Go" is good, with a very upbeat sound but still has the same vibe and feel as the original track. Another bonus that I enjoyed is the last track "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters." It is a beautiful track of ambiance and spirit, and was the closing song in the last scene and credits of the 1995 film "Heat." Not a shocker at all of the outcome of the first disc- a great collection of Moby's finest works. Now, on to the bonus disc: the remixes. Remixes of Moby have appeared on several mixes from some of the world's best DJ's and producers, so that got me excited when I saw that this was being thown in with the album. Some of the remixes are average to good, but I have heard better remixes of the same songs and some remixed songs that did not make it to the disc. For instance, the Olav Basoski remix of "Bodyrock" is not too bad, but the Hybrid mix of the track is very upbeat and full of energy. Tiesto's remix of "Extreme Ways" is decent, but his remix of "We Are All Made of Stars" is alot better than his "Extreme Ways" mix, and better than the Timo Maas remix that is on the album. Oakenfold's remix of "Natural Blues" is good, but I have heard a different edit of the Oakey remix that has more lyrics from the verses in it. I have also heard some remixes from songs such as "Porcelain" and "In This World" that are extremely well done with a darker, progressive feel that did not make the album. I honsestly think they wanted the remixes to be more brighter and commercial than some of the other mixes I have heard. For instance, Ferry COorsten's mix of "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" has that commercial trance sound that Ferry is known for. But some of the remixes are good, such as Mylo's "Lift Me Up" and Steve Agnello's "Raining Again." I think that I just had higher expectations on the bonus disc because I have heard so many great remixes from Moby's work. All in all though , the first disc is worth it by itself, and the remix disc is just a bonus.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of Moby July 27 2007
By E. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am not the massive fan of Moby's music as I once was back in the late '90s and early '00s. I used to own most of his cds but eventually my taste in music changed and I sold my Moby cds. I decided to check out Moby's best of compilation GO: THE VERY BEST OF MOBY after I had a craving for his music. There are two discs, disc one consists of the original tracks and disc two consists of remixes. I found the remix disc absolute rubbish and boring beyond belief. It was so not necessary to include a remix disc in my personal opinion. I am just content with disc one. Since I hadn't heard Moby's last studio cd HOTEL, the songs from that album were new to me. I especially loved "Dream About Me" w/Laura Dawn on vocals. The song is so addictively catchy. Laura's delicate vocals is another reason why I love the song. I am so glad Moby didn't include that rancid version of "South Side" with Gwen Stefani on vocals. Gwen Stefani can't sing period and she totally ruined that song for me when that new version of "South Side" came out. I wasn't too big on the 2006 version of "Go". I prefer the original version. I love Debbie Harry but her voice totally ruined the song "New York, New York". I wish Moby found someone else to sing vocals. As overplayed "Porcelain" was, I still love that song and all the singles from PLAY (as well as 18). GO: THE VERY BEST OF MOBY is a good compilation for casual fans like me.
