Moby: LA2, London

Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 15 April 1995

WHEN COURTNEY LOVE tries it on, people think she's the defiant survivor shrugging the weight of the world off her shoulders. Yet, when Moby decides to adopt a crucifixion pose at the tail-end of a long, drawn-out set whilst perched on an amplifier box, he looks like an errant stagediver who thinks he's Jesus. You long for the Old Testament days when God used to strike people down with thunderbolts.
