What?
This is Moby's 5th album and explores electronic music mixed with southern gospel and soul in parts. The first 11 tracks are more like a greatest hits package rather than an actual album with no fewer than 8 smash hit home runs in "Honey" , "Run On" , "Bodyrock" , "Why Does My Heart . . ." , "Natural Blues" , "Porcelain" , "Southside" featuring Gwen Stefani and "Find My Baby" . Tracks 12 to 18 Moby pumps the breaks and closes things out with 7 slower atmospheric tracks

Who?
It's Moby AKA Richard Melville Hall New York born and bred , and is still making albums in 2018 . 'Play' remains his masterpiece

Do I Need To Hear This Album?
Absolutely ! 'Play' is one of the best albums from the 1990's and essential for all music fans

View?
You must check out the 8 wonderful videos for the tracks listed above on YouTube. Each one is a mini masterpiece , the one for "Find My Baby" is hysterically funny with a crew of actual babies taking centre stage

It's pretty good. I think I enjoy the sound in general more than the album as a whole. "Honey's" a decent opener, "Porcelain" is pretty beautiful, and "Why Does my Heart Feel so Bad" is pretty good, but that's about all I can say honestly. Everything else makes for a pretty enjoyable album that feels fun and interesting, but again, I just think it's pretty good. I would still recommend it though, I just don't feel like it's anything groundbreaking.

Very soft album, verging on elevator music at times. Some nice melodies, but too soft and slow for my tastes.
