Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

Following one of the most licensed CDs in history, 18 delivers more of the gospel samples and spiritual exploration that made Play Moby's breakthrough album. But keep your expectations in check. On 18 there is barely a body-rocker in the bunch. This is often a somber, melancholy disc, blanketed in the washed-over cinematic orchestral melodies Moby's been fond of since his classic self-titled debut. It requires several listenings before the gems shine through the ambient fog--and most depart from Play entirely. On the deceptively minimalist opening track, Moby delivers a powerful message through his thin little voice. "We are all made of stars," he sings, and indeed he's believable. MC Lyte punches out an infectious rap over old-school beat-box rhythms on "Jam for the Ladies," offering one of the disc's few roof-raisers. "At Least We Tried" is a tear-jerking swan song of the highest order, and, finally, "The Rafters" resurrects early-‘90s house piano, which will make any of Moby's career-long fans pine for his earliest club hits. The diminutive DJ needn't have produced Play Pt. Two to keep his new fans engaged. Fortunately, his greatest talent for cooking up interesting sounds is still audible; you just need the patience to find it. --Beth Massa

5.0 out of 5 stars Another leap into the spiritual world for Moby May 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Another 18 tracks -thus the name of the album- put together by pop-superstar Moby in this, his newest production, give the listener plenty of material to choose from. It might be questioned how original he has been this time around, when the norm of his previous works has almost always been innovation: at least I confess I had a hard time getting over my initial impression of "Oh, my God! This totally sounds like 'Play'." But after a few listens, it starts to pick up speed and take on a totally different meaning inside of you.
With '18' Moby has taken a two-fold approach: a good half of the album picks up where 'Play' and its B-Sides left and the other half brings a handful of new elements. Lots of gospel vocals and spiritual lyrics can be found in songs such as "In This World," "In My Heart" and "One Of These Mornings," all of which could easily have been produced back in 1999. "Another Woman," though not as gospel in tone, does have that R&B flavor to it, and "I'm Not Worried At All" reminds a lot of "Natural Blues" both due to the lead vocals and to the overall spirit of the song and the lyrics. The New Wave-y opening track, "We Are All Made of Stars" and "Extreme Ways" both have that super-hit flavor for '18' that "Porcelain" and "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad" brought to 'Play' but it mixes some elements which are somewhat alien to Moby's music (except for the "element" of eclecticism). On the other hand, "Great Escape," "Sunday (The Day Before My Birthday)" (consider his b-day is 9/11) and "Harbour" all have one thing in common: beautiful female vocals (surprise tip: "Harbour" has Sinead O'Connor on vocals).

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the 18 dollars May 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
After the dynamite Play, Moby continues the sound of Play in some areas except that this follow-up is a bit lighter and has more Gospel samples giving the album somewhat a bit of a 60s or 70s feel to it. Play was great, 18 is just as great.
1)We're All Made Of Stars_Excellent lead off single. Very similar to South Side. Excellent nighttime travel music.
2) In This World- This song is a mix of jazz/pop with ol school hip hop beats and a Gospel vocal in the background. Kind of a bit 60s sounding.
3)In My Heart- Anyone remember Rushing off Play? This song has a similar piano crescendo loop only this song is not quite as eerie and more upbeat.
4)Great Escape- A very simple song with a cello and a female vocal. Not too bad but not that memorable
5)Signs Of Love- A very beautiful song. Reminiscent of Porcelain.
6)One OF These Mornings- This song also uses a Gospel sample voice. A very nice song.
7)Another Woman- One of my favorites. AW has a kind of an early 90s old school R&B sound and a strange organ playing. Sort of like linking the sounds on 1990 and 2002 together.
8)Fireworks- Music with atmosphere. This song is captivatingly beautiful. Makes me think of standing out on a field on a cloudy afternoon.
9)Extreme Ways-An upbeat R&Bish song with a weird orchestra sound in the background. Kind of 70s sounding.
10)Jam For The Ladies-Moby dives into the old school hip-hop realm. This song is absolutely great. Satisfies my desire for hip-hop is fun.
11)Sunday- Another atmospheric track with a wierd vocal sample.
12)18- An ambient slow track with echoing pianos. This song can be kind of depressing sometimes.
13)Sleep Alone- One of the highlight songs on 18.

4.0 out of 5 stars GRADE:B+ June 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was a convert of Moby's music after the ubiquitous "Play".
A stunner whose purity and true emotion complexities touched me so that buying "Play"'s followup,"18",wasn't even a question for me.
Fortunately,"18"-while not as stunning as "Play"-is a very impressive album.Like "Play","18" is very emotional and pure sounding.Like "Play",it also features emotive vocals-from Angie Stone to Sylvia Robinson to Sinead O'Connor-over contemporary
beats.Yet it works.
Among the standouts is the first single "We Are All Made of Stars",a smart New Wave-influenced track which is greatly arrangened,"In This World" which features a hauntingly beautiful
vocal from Jennifer Page,"One Of These Mornings",which like "World" features a hauntingly beautiful soulful Gospel-esque vocal(this time courtsey of Dianne McCaulley) over a convincing beat equipped with a moving sythnizied string setting.
"Sunday(A Day Before My Birthday)"-a symbolic nod to September
11th(Moby's birthday is September 11th)-and "At Least We Tried"
(featuring a beautiful vocal from Freedom Bremner) will get the tear ducts open."Harbour" featuring Sinead O'Connor is yet another moving passage.
But I can't speak of standouts without mentioning "Jam For The Ladies".A superb cut featuring the smooth,silky vocals of
Angie Stone and a infectious rap from the now legendary MC Lyte
(I haven't heard from her in so long,it's geat to hear from her!) with a old-school hip hop beat and funky slap beat.
This is easily the most likeable track on "18".This has a slightly similiar vibe to Moby's hit "Bodyrock".
