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

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic CD that crosses musical bounderies Feb. 11 2004
By CGV
Format:Audio CD
There is a lot of good electronica out right now. The Chemical Brothers "Singles" and mr.deviant's "Techno Obsession" immediately come to mind. However, one of the best electronica CDs you can buy right now was released in mid 1999 and is still relevant. Moby's "Play" is as close to perfect as any artist can get musically. Every artist dreams of their "Srgt. Pepper" and "Play" is Moby's. First off, if you think you haven't heard anything from this CD, think again. "Play" holds a record for having some of the most licensed music for film, tv and commercials. "Play" is loaded with simply good music. A unique blend of blues, techno, soul, new age, hip-hop and electronica make up the songs on "Play". I could go into detail about each track, but trust me, just buy this one and hit the play button. I haven't met anyone that didn't find something that they liked on this CD. A must own for music fans!

2.0 out of 5 stars simple but scary May 2 2003
By Sara
Format:Audio CD
If I didn't know any better, I would think that this album was put together in a day as an afterthought. I've always been a firm believer in simplicity, but I have also been a firm believer in talent, which in the case of Moby, is nonexistant. If become a recording "artist" is this easy, what the heck an I doing? "Run On" should of been the name of all the songs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull, repetitive, and boring. March 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
For a while, I used to enjoy this album. Don't get me wrong, I still do enjoy some of it. Everloving is wonderful, South Side is poppy but a fun ride, Machete is a slice of energetic techno that feels woefully out of place here, and My Weakness still captivates me with that "underwater choir" sound.
But those are really the only "songs" on here.
The rest is excruciatingly boring nonsense that consists of one or two samples of gospel music, looped endlessly, with maybe a simple drum beat or some guitar thrown in. Calling it "minimalist" is a cop-out; this is just plain lazy. Hell, I could write "songs" like this without much trouble. If Moby is considered to be talented for putting out this dross, it speaks volumes for what pop music is today.
If you're looking for good techno/electronica, try Boards Of Canada, The Prodigy, Massive Attack, and maybe some Brian Eno. Looking for challenging music? My Bloody Valentine, Sigur Ros, the Cocteau Twins, and Godspeed You Black Emperor are good choices. Play is glorified elevator music, and little else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time March 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was dinning with some friends of mine when I took a liking for the track that the bartender was playing. When I inquired about them, he said it was Moby's Play Album. I bought it, it's the worse music I've purchased in a while. I'm upset that the bartender got it wrong. I read Moby's synopsis on AllMusic.com, I've got to admit that even AllMusic got him wrong. The guy's stuff is musically dead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yikes, this is sad... Feb. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
The first track starts off with "Gunna Hunny Gum Bay" (or whatever it is that they're saying)... and I kept waiting for it to change; but it never did. Sure, he added some drums in later--but is this MUSIC? NO. "Gunna Hunny Gum Bay" repeated somewhere around 124 times in 3:30 is just... it's a waste of time both to listen to and to have produced.
My main problem is with Moby--the guy has the biggest ego on earth, but he makes such BAD MUSIC... how can anyone who churns out tracks like Run On even believe for a second that he has any talent whatsoever? Even if his music was good, he thinks far too highly of himself. It's sad what fame does to people...
Moving on, we come to tracks such as Find My Baby.. in which the same thing happens. Take a dead person's music, loop it without any changes, add in a drum, and repeat the same boring sound over and over again for as long as you can stand. And in this case, Moby's tolerance for the utterly mindless repetition of the same sounds and drums over and over and over again is far higher than most people's.
I can't imagine the kind of people who really enjoy music like this. You have a single sample, played at the very beginning of the song, that just continuously loops over and over again; with slight drums and orchestrated "sweeps", but it's not... this isn't MUSIC.
Porcelain is a much better track, but again it goes nowhere. However, it sounds good, so I'm not so concerned.
Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? does the same pattern--completely mindless, nonchanging rhythms and single sample.
Southside is totally different, and I don't happen to particularly like it, but at least it's something you can LISTEN to.

2.0 out of 5 stars Has been Nov. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
This was such a great album when it came out, but maybe I just got sick of hearing the songs played over and over again in commercials. It's just not happening any more.

2.0 out of 5 stars My grandma like it... April 23 2002
Format:Audio CD
I bought a 12 inch version of Go, years ago. I bought this last week. What a bore! But my grandma like it, she said it was 'pretty' so I guess I'll give it 2 stars for my grandma.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for April 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have recently gotten into the likes of Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, and Orbital. Maybe it was my bad for not doing more research, but Play is boring to me and I hope I can help others with my taste avoid it.
If you are looking for upbeat electonic stuff, (Prodigy Fat of the Land and Orbital II are my favs) stay far away from this. If you want repetitive gospel type singing laid over basic beats, knock yourself out.
