Moby 'After' Destroyed Deluxe Edition Trailer

Biography

Creative history is littered with insomniac icons – Vincent van Gogh, Marcel Proust, Charles Dickens, Groucho Marx, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe and David Bowie to name but seven, all of whom were regularly kept from the tender embraces of Morpheus by over-stimulated brains and artistic appetites that just wouldn’t quit. Vegan, teetotal and habitually brimming with rude health ... Read more in Amazon's Moby Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

One of techno's prime trendsetters, Moby flashed surprising rock chops on the Joy Division tribute Means to an End in 1995. Here he abandons the dance floor completely for a convincing stroll through a multitude of guitar-based styles. "Come on Baby" is the man's idea of trad rock, "Someone to Love" explodes like the best hardcore, and "Face It" is a swelling progressive epic. Animal Rights also includes Moby's ode to his roots, a cover of Mission of Burma's "That's When I Reach for My Revolver." --Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mix January 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Although many Moby fans have mixed feelings about his album 'Animal Rights', in my opinion it is his best work. Although he diverged from his common theme of techno/dance music to produce this more alternative/rock album, the final product is brilliant. Rather than mixing other pieces of music, Moby focuses more on his other talents, actually playing instruments and singing. The album contains both heavy and slow songs. Moby releases his rage with songs like, 'Say It's All Mine', and 'That's When I Reach For My Revolver', both very powerful songs featuring roaring guitars and Moby's screaming voice above all. On the other hand, the album features some very relaxing instrumental mixes. Half of the album is consumed with beautiful instrumental mixes incuding, 'Now I Let It Go' featuring a violin and piano duet, also 'Anima' and 'Living' which are both songs that take over all of your emotions. This album causes the listener to go through a mix of emotions which is why I think it is so unique. I love this album, it is much better than most of Moby's recent songs which have somehow found themselves on top 40 radio play. 'Animal Rights' deserves the rights to be known as Moby's greatest work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raise the heartrate April 20, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love that moby does different things and realizes that music is not set in boundaries. This album will surprise anyone who has the misconception that moby is just a techno or rave artist. The music on this album is strong, loud, angry, and then you hear "Living" and you relax. This album is emotional just like any of mobys albums. To realize why moby is amazing listen to this album and just feel it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I think I figured it out..... September 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OK, even though the other reviews (so far) praise this album, I'm sure you know someone who hates it. I have to admit, when I first bought it, I thought "ACK! What's this crap?!" BUT! Most detractors reactions will be skewed, as mine was, because we were all expecting something COMPLETELY different. Moby has said he wants us to judge this album on it's own merits, not in comparason to his previous releases. Well, on it's own, it is a good album, I guess, for the type of music it is. The problem is this... say you are a huge "Jaws" fan. Now, you hear that "Jaws 5" is coming out. But, when you see it, the movie is not about a giant killer shark, but about a nomadic desert tribe. Now, it may be a really great nomadic tribe movie, but you wanted a shark, you expected a shark, you love the shark, and the movie was called "Jaws". Get the picture?

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet holy crap!!!!!!! buy it now!!!! May 26, 2001
By bob
Format:Audio CD
This is a testament of the greatness of MOBY. The king of techno is also an amazing singer and songwriter and can thrash out some AWESOME jams.
Returning to his roots as a punker, MOBY was once again ahead of his time, every song on this cd, from the beatiful violin tracks to the hard hitting fast paced garage thrash rock tracks and the cover of mission of burma's "Thats when i reach for my revolver" are all amazing.
I recommend to anyone who loves thrashing screaming rock, or just good rock music in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Believe These Reviews January 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
At a time when "electronica" was coming into the mainstream, this electronic wizard chose to release a 100% rock album. Disturbing and hardcore, this is one of my favorite of his albums (although you won't like it for the same reasons you like his other stuff). Don't let the other reviewers (who have probably only heard Play) fool you with their bad reviews - this is an excellent album (and as tuneful and accessible as some of his other stuff).

5.0 out of 5 stars That Evil Ninja's done it again! March 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is definately my favourite Moby album. It mixes some mellow ambient tracks that he's famous for with exciting, incredibly fun punk-rock tracks.
If you enjoyed ply a lot, you micht not like this, but that's the risk you take. Personally, I like this a lot more than any techno he's done, and it rates as even with his gospel stuff.
"Come on Baby", "Alone", "Someone to Love" and "That's When I Reach for My Revolver" are highlights.
Give this album a try. You might like it.

3.0 out of 5 stars No No No !!! March 10, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First, sorry for my so "inadequate" english.
Buy absolutly the other first : it was the one that i knew, and was so happy finding the 2 record version... but waht a pity... i prefer 1000 times the 1 record 16 tracks version... But not available in France, so i bought the US Version... so much better... no comparaison... the tracks sequency, mixing, etc... my friends have the same oponion... only buy this 2 records version to complete the other, not the contrary. Then it will be fair.

4.0 out of 5 stars two very different disks June 1, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you are going to buy "Animal Rights," this is the version you should get. It comes with an extra CD titled "Little Idiot," unavailable, as far as I know, on its own. Yes the first disk is evrything everyone has already said, but I bought it for the second disk- a subtle ambient synthesizer work of 9 lyricless pieces. Soothing and peaceful. In other words, a direct contrast of the Animal Rights CD. You are cheating yourself out of half of the story buying the "domestic" version. Go ahead and be a little daring, splurge for the import.

Listening to the song 'Alone' right now compels me to write this review. If nothing, buy this CD only for this track. A 10-minute long epic ambient composition. Read more

This album is really different from the traditional ambient Moby everyone is used to. There is a lot of screaming from Moby and a lot more bass-guitar than you would expect. Read more
