Moby: Play

Todd L. Burns, Stylus, 1 September 2003

NOW, I DON'T HATE MOBY because he uses the same synth string sound in each song, a sound that feels like it needs something. I don't hate Moby because he uses the exact same four note pattern each time he uses the aforementioned synth string. I don't hate Moby because he is a vegan. I don't hate Moby because he has essays about his veganism and other issues in the liner notes. I don't hate Moby because he combines old blues field recordings and electronic breakbeats.
