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

After three albums that seemed to find Moby in some sort of creative stasis, Last Night sees the once-restless DJ/producer changing the record and returning to one of his first loves: the heaving dancefloors of his native New York. Soulful, uplifting piano rave is the order of the day here, and while some hallmarks of Play remain--Moby still has a fascination for long, tearful synth lines and sampled vocals, which he drops in here and there, seemingly to yield the maximum emotional response--Last Night still feels like a clean slate. "I Like to Move in Here" shimmies along on a languid house beat that doffs a cap to early hip-hop in the shape of a cameo from MC Grandmaster Caz, one of the writers of "Rapper's Delight", while "Everyday It's 1989" is the sort of overdriven, ecstatic piano house that Moby perfected on his 1995 classic Everything Is Wrong. There's more guest spots in the shape of British MC Aynzli, the Nigerian 419 Squad and Sylvia from dark NYC disco band Kudu, but the most impressive thing about Last Night is the peaks that Moby can reach when he's working alone: see the grand, emotive swell of "Sweet Apocalypse", cold synths and driving beats that, were it released by James Murphy, would be hailed as genius--and rightfully, too.--Louis Pattison

Product Description

This sixth studio album from the unassuming studio genius follows 2005's Hotel and has been described by the man himself as a return to a more electronic and dancefloor oriented feel. Produced and recorded at his home studio in Manhattan, the record includes the single 'Alice' and features a variety of guest vocalists including the UK's MC Aynzli, Sylvia Gordon of Brooklyn indie-dance outfit Kudu, the Yoruba-speaking Nigerian 419 Crew, and Grandmaster Caz, one of the writers of the seminal Hip Hop anthem 'Rapper's Delight'.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Diffrent Sides Of Moby April 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Few Dance artists can compare to Moby in popularity and mainstream success, Moby is equally famous for the versatility in his music that uses elements from Rave, Techno, Rock, Pop and Lounge and for his lifestyle which includes strong religious believes and animal activism. Although his early beginnings with eponymous debut album Moby and Everything Is Wrong sound nothing like his worldwide breakthrough albums Play and 18 you can say that Moby is the most recognizable dance artist in the world cause he was able to blend so many diffrent styles into his album "Play" that even people that normally don't like dance music got their eyes on him and his music, Moby also manufacted his music well with good music videos and borrowing a handful of songs to tv commercials. Kind of like non-rap fans enjoying Kanye West cause his lyrics differ from the average rapper and he's able to sell himself better then anyone else. However, As important as "Play" was for dance music it was giant steps away from the more traditional Rave/Techno that Moby made in the early 90's with songs like "Go", "Drop A Beat", "Everytime You Touch Me" and "Feeling So Real". And for old time fans it was even harder to accept the more exprimental rock oriented flop album Hotel that simply became the last straw. But 3 years later Moby realized that singing ain't his thing and fans rather prefer him doing dance music then rock. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars aw c'mon, it's good! May 10, 2008
By bruce
Format:Audio CD
alright, i picked this up impulsively, which i almost never do because it sucks when you get a cd and like only few or none of the songs. but the cover got me. liked it. and i liked "play." i liked it a lot. i tried to get into "18" but couldn't--even after several sincere listenings... i'll give it a few more listens before i make my final judgement... anyway, "last night" is good. (i've gone ahead and tossed the receipt)! i've listened to "last night" thoroughly now, again and again, and my final judgement is: it's good! it's fun! it's intelligent! bear with me on that last part, because like a lot of electronically-driven music, it can be monotonous. but don't focus on that single layer of sound. these tracks have many layers. these tracks are multi-colored. THIS MUSIC IS THE PRODUCT OF VERY THOUGHTFUL COMPOSITION. that's right! COMPOSITION! good cd. go ahead and spring the 15 or 20 bucks and buy it. put it in your cart. go ahead!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. May 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Moby cd is the most amazing yet! You can really feel the music the way Moby wants it to be felt. There are very few words, but the words and phrases used are just right for each song. Moby features a couple different artists for this, with fantastic voices. I absolutely love it and play it every chance I get!

3.0 out of 5 stars I was expecting something a little different... May 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Last Night is Moby's first album released by Mute US. When I was hearing reports that this was supposed to be more of a "dance album" compared to his more recent albums, I was excited to hear this. Unfortunately, after hearing Last Night, I was rather disappointed. While it's not a bad album, it definitely wasn't what I thought it was going to be.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Moby album since "Play" May 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First, you should know I was blown away by "Play," the first Moby CD I purchased that really hooked me on him as an artist. But subsequent albums left me curious but mostly cold--I enjoyed some of the cuts, but nothing grabbed me like "Play." The good news: This new CD, "Last Night," does engage me and transport me--the sign of a great album in my opinion. It's not perfect, which I thought "Play" was, but there is some terrific stuff here, and I've listened to the CD in its entirety many times since I bought it--and it continues on my iTunes playlist as well--with many of the songs rated 5 stars for heavy rotation.
