Our mate Mobe never fails to divide opinion.

feeling in a mellow electronic pop mood, so today i picked up 'wait for me', 'wait for me - remixes!', and 'destroyer' today for £3 each from fopp.so far, so right.not classic by any means, but not dud either.

I think his first album is pretty classic, along with the Play singles and "Bring Me My Happiness"

Yeah, mark e is right above. His ambient work honestly is Mulholland Drive levels beautiful (esp. that first track)

the stuff since Play has been mostly embarrassing
not too keen on Voodoo Child's Baby Monkey but I love this slowed-down version of "Electronics":

How does Moby Ambient compare to the LAX ambient recordings he released for free? Those 20 + minute pieces are ideal for coming down or crashing

I'd say he's pretty consistent throughout his career, I keep updating myself on his new stuff once every three years or so and he never really surprises. He's really good at ambient, enjoyable at dancefloor-oriented house/techno, boring-but-effective at the downtempo/pop stuff, and terrible at alternative rock/punk.

the album Ambient is way different from the long ambient releases — it's "ambient" in the early '90s ambient house sense. it's very clearly a Moby album but in this context his primitive/naive approach really works:

I have an iTunes playlist of Ambient and Little Idiot and various other tracks throughout his discography that resemble that material. I think that's where he's the strongest and I wish he had more stuff like that.

Still spin "I love to move in here" very regularly - excellent piece of pastiche house

In other news, his book left me feeling kind of gross.

these noisy moby albums are actually very enjoyable when you have a ton of crappy paperwork to deal with.
i have no interest in the book.
