British Phonographic Industry. Instead, it's based around 's Play , 's 18 , and 's Hotel , and it adds a handful of tracks in an attempt to entice fans who couldn't otherwise justify the purchase of a disc that relies on very recent and readily available material. Hotel had only been out a year and a half when Go was released.
The lyrics are simple, but very powerful, very powerful for sure. I love the way that Moby left the second set of lyrics open to interpretation, this shows true artistry, and it's great, very great! And don't forget the music. He starts with A minor, then to E minor, then to G major, and D major.
Simple, but pure and sincere, as the lyrics also suggest. Great stuff! A couple of interpretations of what the woman is singing: a Feel's like it don't, b He'll open doors, c These open doors, d He's got to know.
Moby did a great job of making sure that any interpretation of the lyrics fits the overall theme of the song, this is true art, not unlike one looking upon a great painting, and finding your own meaning to it.
Good point about the painting reference! Flag msoos on September 16, Electronic , Rock , Pop. House , Downtempo , Pop Rock. This album is no exception - to me as a fan who started listening to Moby the time "Everything Is Wrong" was released, it's hard to accept that most of the tracks chosen for this are from the "Play" and "18" albums even "Hotel" is only featured with 2 songs.
Only 4 tracks on the first disc were released before Moby's "Play" phase, and even though "Go" is chosen as the title track, it is not included in the version which made it Moby's first big hit in , but in the remixed version which was included on 's "I Like To Score".
The whole first disc leaves me with mixed feelings - it only contains one previously unreleased track, which makes it of little use for fans. On the other hand, the track selection is concentrated on a very specific period in Moby's career and doesn't really manage to give new listeners an insight into the artist's musical development. The second disc is even stranger, in that the producers seemingly couldn't decide what kind of remix collection they wanted to do.
The way I see it, there are two ways to do a good remix album: Either you weave the remixes into a club-friendly continuous DJ Mix, or you pick versions that take the songs into different musical directions.
In the latter case, the songs should be included in their full length versions. The remix disc on "Go - The Very Best Of Moby" though manages to combine the worst of these two approaches, in that it offers little musical diversity, is not mixed and doesn't even contain the remixes in their full length - they are cut at the start and at the end for example, the Olav Basoski mix of "Bodyrock" is cut from to only 4 minutes.
Why this was decided is beyond me.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the CD release of Go - The Very Best Of Moby on Discogs.5/5(1).
