Destroyed – Moby [#366]

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 19.15.24 Moby eh?

If ever there was a soundtrack in the late nineties early noughties you could probably bet ten bob on it featuring good old baldy bonce Moby. It was like you couldn’t listen to anything without it having had some Moby influence.

Moby moby moby.

I followed the herd and eventually grew to love his quintessential Play and I suppose I’ll take my hat off to his I Like to Score but by 2004 I’d got bored with him. I suspect the rest of the world did too because his later albums, Hotel, 18 and today’s album Destroyed haven’t been played to death by people looking for music for their film/documentary.

Destroyed is a bit bollocks. Much like Jarre, Moby becomes a bit common place and because of this there is nothing new or innovative. Destroyed is Moby pure and simple but it’s a tired Moby. An “I’ve got to release this album because I’m contractually obliged to” Moby. I imagine that the reason he titled the album Destroyed is because it is a reflection on his ability to produce something new.

Still, I’m sure he’ll do what Mike Oldfield did and reappear with something spectacular after a few years of nothingness.
