Product Description

LAST NIGHT Moby's ninth studio album and follow-up to 2005s HOTEL, has been described by the man himself as a return to a more electronic and dance floor oriented feel. This album was recorded in Moby's home studio in Manhattan, New York and features a number of guest vocalists, including MC Grandmaster Caz, Sylvia Gordon of Brooklyn indie-dance outfit Kudu, the Yoruba-speaking Nigerian 419 Crew, one of the writers of the seminal hip-hop anthem "Rapper's Delight."

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

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!

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.

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!

OK, OK -- I have bought pretty much every Moby album in the past 10 years with mixed listening satisfaction which results in now having become used to NOT being disappointed when he releases something that doesn't resonate with me. But on this recording he has returned to some seriously listenable and danceable electronic music. On songs like "Everyday its 1989" and "Alice" and "Disco Lies" Moby's bringing back some of the coolest voices and sounds off of his top-selling 1999 release "Play". If you like the sounds of very well-crafted house sounds and some great ambient music to chill with -- this CD will grow on you with each time you put it on rotation on your player. << GO >>

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.

Whenever most audiophiles refer to Moby's crowning career achievement, most will mention his 1999 breakout album, Play. The creativity and originality of Play was a shining moment in the electronica genre, but unfortunately, Moby's creative light has fizzled in his latest offering, Last Night.

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.
