Voodoo Child - The End of Everything (1996)


First full-length by this project of Richard Melville Hall, aka Moby. It's soothing, ambient electro/techno with a beautifully gentle sense of forward movement. Easily one of the best albums he ever put out. Also, while I have your attention, I'd just like to say that, "Bodyrock" aside, Play is a fucking masterpiece, and no amount of selling out or mediocrity that has transpired since its release will change that.

Track listing:
1. Patient Love
2. Great Lake
3. Gentle Love
4. Honest Love
5. Slow Motion Suicide
6. Dog Heaven
7. Reject

The rain pushes the buildings aside
The sky turns black
The sky

  2. I endorse this opinion of PLAY even though it may cost me the last little bit of "indie" "cred" I had remaining.

  3. Play was really good except for southside and bodyrock which ironically were the two 'hits.' The last song on Play is the best. Thanks! Never heard of this one.

    by the way... it has nothing to do with this post, but, do you have a link of "Coping Mechanisms"? it's an album by irish artist Si Scrhroeder.
