Album: Moby, Wait for Me, (Rom/Universal)
Sunday 28 June 2009
The ultimate victim of his own success, such was the saturation of 1999's
Play that Moby became the musical go-to guy for car advertisers and an uncomfortable-but- willing participant whenever a TV panel show felt in need of a soft-spoken, bald, geeky vegan.
It was easy to forget how luscious and dazzling Moby records could be. And while Wait for Me is a sort of distillation of everything he has done before, it also contains, in its title track, a piece of music to remind you why Moby mattered in the first place.
