Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

The great iconoclast of techno returns with a smooth, sacred, and exhilarating record. Play's concoction of breakbeat rhythms, ambient mixology, and inspired blues and gospel samples cry out across musical genres and histories, imparting a time-tested wisdom to beat-driven ears. Moby's devout faith--in both God and his own musical whims--give this approach a sort of legitimacy that another, less sincere artist would never have. That sincerity reverberates through the beats and instrumental eclecticism like a pulse. The soulful refrains and proclamations in "Find My Baby" and "Natural Blues" somehow nestle between straight-up dance-floor rave-ups ("Bodyrock") and melt-in-your-mouth ambience ("Inside") with an effortless grace. Moby reaches across his turntables and finds something pure--almost organic. In fact, the album feels more natural than techno is ever supposed to feel, more spiritual than what DJs are supposed to be able to muster, and more alive than it has any right to be. --Matthew Cooke

When you say the word "techno", people tend to imagine loud, obnoxious electronic dance songs with loads of annoying sound-effects. Rest assured that if that's your defintion of techno, this ain't techno.
Moby takes 18 tracks and tackles multiple genres: rock, hip hop, blues, gospel, accoustic, and many more. Many tracks contain samplings of other songs (ranging from Love Rap by Spoony G and The Trecherous 3 to Run On For A Long Time, a 1937 gospel piece), while others are true original compositions with Moby doing the vocals himself. It creates for a rather confusing effect: you won't know exactly who you're listening to--but believe me, you'll be enjoying yourself too much to care.
Moby is a devout Christian, and his spirituality shines in every one of these 18 tracks. It would be wrong, though, to call this religious music--it's not looking to convert anyone, if that's a worry of yours. I'm an Agnostic myself, and I loved the spiritual, empowering feelings of these songs.
I've noticed other reviews say that some songs are great while others fail, but I honestly believe each and every one of these songs has something to offer. Some, like "7", "Down Slow", and "Inside" don't have any lyrics and do resort to a more traditional techno sound, but are enthralling nevertheless.
So go on and add it to your shopping cart. If you don't absolutely love it, then--well--feel free to write me an angry e-mail.

Moby has come along way from his very first album entitled 'Moby' which was his early techno works to his most recent album 'Play'. We got a taste of what Moby can really do with ambient music, pop-techno, dance, and rock in albums such as: Everything Is Wrong, Ambient, Rare: The Collected B-Sides 1989-1993, etc... Now, Moby takes another step up and brings a lot of gospel and soul music into his keyboard and electronic music works. 'Play' gives you a wide variety of different styles of gospel and soul. The song "Honey" starts with a simple catchy and rhythem and builds in a nice and light techno beat. Others like "Find My Baby" and "Why Does My Heart Feel so Bad?" combine more of a soul feeling into melodic piano and light dance beats. His most successful song in the album was "South Side" which features Gwen Stefani (No Doubt) leading Moby in the chorus. The song also became a hit single along with it being a hit song all by itself. 'Play', towards the end of the album, steps into more slow and ambient textures in songs like "Down Slow", "Inside", and the poetic-like songs "If Things Were Perfect" (I think that's one of them that he just TALKS in) and "The Sky Is Broken" which is very visionary-like with its slow and soothing melodies and beginning beat throughout. The ending song "My Weakness" starts off with a beautiful choir background and later builds in a beautiful orchestral texture in. This makes the song, with it's orchestral sound, a most remembering moment in what Moby can do...My Weakness makes for a fascinating ending for the entire CD.
'Play' was a platinum-selling album worldwide.

This album is probably one of the most influentual in pop music. I first heard Moby in 94 when he was just one of many decent dj's. His hit "Feeling so real" was one great dance song that was frequently played for a while, but then i didn't hear him much until 97 and 2 years later this album came out and it has become some kind of modern classic. Moby had found himself, it was not just techno, it was something else. A artistic album where the new york dj Moby had mixed alot of diffrent genre's into one, blues, soul, rock some pop. It's a album with 18 songs and many of them are very diffrent from each other. "Natural blues" and "Why does my heart feel so bad" were slow songs with perfectly matches beats and sad vocals. Same thing with the even slower "Porcelain". The album gave Moby charisma and a great flavor of diffrent genre's, many other dj's did the same thing later on. There were faster songs too like "Bodyrock" "Honey" and "Find my baby" soul inspired "If things were perfect" and the rock inspired "Southside". Perhaps too many songs, on the first half you'll find all hits and one the second album material. They are not fillers though. Remember that Moby released a huge amount of songs from this album. Cretit to Moby for a diffrent a beautiful album were most songs are pleasant and beautiful. It launched dance music a lot bigger audience then before and he's still doing well.

Moby's PLAY is one of the CDs which an artist makes exactly one time. It is an album which transcends musical boundries and genres, combining jazz, classical, blues, R&B, electronic and ambient into a swirling eddy of creative genius. This is one of the all-around strongest musical efforts I have experienced: Every track is significant, and every piece moves fluidly from one song to the next.
This is a stand-alone CD by Moby, as well. The rest of his musical repretoire is talanted, and he has shown that he is continually re-inventing his musical style. However, it seems to me that 18 is just an attempt to "re-work" Play: It doesn't come off properly.
The first twelve tracks on this album are genuine Moby: They are guitar and drum, jazz and blues. My personal favorite is "Run On," which is track 11: Its lively piano and catchy rhythm (cliche) are what initially introduced me to this album. The last six tracks are more ambient, with Moby exploring pure instrumentals.
What makes this album so magnificant is the impression that Moby had an absolute ball producing it. It shines through how much he enjoyed making the music on this album, and as a result, it has received much attention. Any lover of any genre of music is sure to enjoy Play: It is an excellent piece of musical artistry.
