In the liner notes, Moby included an essay explaining what his intent with the album was; he said he wanted to make an album that sounded like a night out in New York. While I understand that this is the sound that Moby was trying to achieve, it ultimately didn't work for me.
On Last Night, it sounds like Moby is trying to re-tread the sounds of several eras in his back catalog. "Ooh Yeah" sounds like Moby is trying to return to the sound from his Instinct Records days. I could also hear that some songs sounded like they could have fit onto albums in Moby's back catalog: Everything is Wrong ("I Love to Move in Here," "Everyday It's 1989," and "The Stars"), Play ("Alice"), and 18 ("Live for Today"). The song "Degenerates" sounded like it could have appeared on one of the ambient CDs that was released as part of limited edition versions of some of Moby's albums. Ultimately, it didn't feel as if Moby really brought anything new musically to this album.
The last four tracks on the CD are all downtempo, which seems to go against the idea of Last Night being a "dance album." Also, it really makes it much harder to listen to the end of the album, especially with the last song on the disc ("Last Night") running for almost ten minutes. "Sweet Apocalypse" and "Mothers of the Night" sound like they really should have been relegated as B-sides.Read more ›
With his last album (Hotel) being less than stellar, Moby fans were forced to wait three years to see if he could musically reconcile with his loyal following. However, much to the chagrin of this reviewer, Last Night was a deplorable effort from an artist who was once electronica royalty. When a musician feels inclined to explicitly describe the concept of an album instead of letting the music speak for itself, something is amiss. In the album's liner notes, Moby states, "It's me trying to take 25 years of going out in NYC and condensing it into a 65-minute record. It's also trying to condense an eight-hour night into just over an hour of music." Although many of Moby's listeners haven't experienced a true "clubber's night" out in New York City during it's heyday, Last Night takes you on a flashback through the DJ's hazed eyes.
This album showcases Moby's keen production prowess, though at most times it seems to be brutally uninspired. A "clubber's night" parallels the plot structure followed in a screenplay or a novel. As the exposition of the album unfolds, Moby paints a musical picture of the anticipated good night out in "Ooh Yeah." Starting with a chilled out track to signal the quiet before the storm is an accurate depiction of the beginning of a stereotypical clubgoer's night out. Nevertheless, if Last Night is a purported concept album of a condensed "eight-hour night," Moby must not have had a very thrilling 25 years out in the NYC scene.Read more ›

Absolutely loved this album. I felt like I was in a club in NYC for days. Perfect for disco rain.
`Last Night' from 2008 has the trademark Moby sound, but harks back to the dance era of the 1990s and in places sounds like this mould-breaking artist's early recorded work... Read morePublished on June 8, 2013 by The Guardian
