Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the Electronic Music icon. Wait For Me is a radical departure from Moby's recent albums. Liberated from the pressures of trying to please himself at the same time as the music industry, in making Wait For Me, Moby decided to forego the expensive studios, state of the art equipment, big name guest artists and image consultants that have characterized some of his previous albums. This time, he made Wait For Me because he wanted to make a record that was more personal, experimental and a little more challenging. .

Customer Reviews

This is the Moby I have come to know and love.
E. Anderson
Though a pretty consistent album (I find many of his official releases to be a bit inconsistent in terms of album listening), it feels just a tad too long.

Beautiful arrangments, beautiful music and even extremely emotive lyrics on some.
M. Towers

"Wait For Me" is a tender, refined and predominantly ambient CD of nonpareil electronic music that has some of the most melancholic, majestic and poignant soundscapes of Moby's career. It was recorded in Moby's home studio with the help of some very adept female vocalists. "Shot In The Back Of The Head" is one of the most harrowing and surreal instrumentals ever composed. There are many other great tracks such as "Division" that is laden with vintage synthetic strings. "Hope Is Gone" is a ballad replete with pathos. "Ghost Return" and "Slow Light" are driven by weeping keys. "Walk With Me" is accompanied by a grieving female voice. "JLTF" is resplendent with piano augmented by sad lyrics. "Pale Horses" is a brilliant vocal song that is emotive and grievous. "Seated Night" is a monastic and mystical instrumental. The boundlessly talented Moby has composed profoundly yearning and lush songs that make you want to cry in joy, sorrow,lament and angst. He's truly a peerless techno master who creates songs inducing mania to sounds that will arouse feelings of pity, compassion, sympathy and sorrow. Much of the music is sombre and stark but Moby is a musician with a spiritual heart of gold.

Format: Audio CD
Chilled out, and ambient best describe Moby's latest CD "Wait for me". It comprises swirling hypnotic and relaxing strings (soothing and swelling in turn), gentle beats, some instrumentals, and some vocals; a sharp contrast to its more big-diva Dance-oriented predecessor "Last night". "Pale horses" featuring some soothing female vocals repeating "Put me on a train / send me back to my home" is a perfect example.

The mood is downbeat and melancholic, with aural pieces that could act as a backdrop to some epic movie (the trio of instrumentals "Shot in the back of the head", the acoustic "Scream pilots" or "JLTF1" and "JLTF"- the latter with spare vocals - especially). In fact, the few vocals there are stand almost in the background, letting the instruments take center stage.

"Study war" features Spartan lyrics (male Preacher-style vocals crying for no more war) set against a cinematic backdrop, and is closest in feel to anything off "Play". "Walk with me" sounds dirge-like, with tremulous fragmented female vocals (Soul singer Leela James), "Mistake" has gently stomping beats, guitars and male harmonies, while "A seated night" sounds like a visit to some ancient monastery.

Title track "Wait for me" features female vocals against cascading piano sounds, and closing cut "Isolate" is a guitar/piano instrumental with an ethereal feel (as is much of the CD really). At first listen, everything tends to sound the same, but repeated listening is required to appreciate its beauty. The album should really be listened to as one piece, much as Moby intended it to be, and I don't really see any single(s) being hits, but what do I know.

I must admit that I did enjoy "Wait For Me" - the original version. It is low key and beautiful. Moby is well known for his upbeat dance club songs, but it is the melancholic Moby that really is wonderful.

This album is a far departure from "Last Night". While the original "Wait For Me" is already an ambient masterpiece, Moby takes it one step further with this bonus ambient cd. A beautiful addition. Then, you also get the dvd with interviews, videos, and live performances.

I highly recommend this purchase for any fan of ambient music or Moby. Even if you already have the original cd, this is worthy.

SO different than "Last Night"! It falls more on the line of "18", but it's just *beautiful*. It's one of the best albums to just sit down and relax and unwind. "Pale Horses" is just a fantastic and peaceful track. Beautiful on a rainy day when you want to contemplate the world.

It's been a long time since Moby released "Play," the subdued mix of gospel and dance music which made him a superstar.

Moby's newest album, "Wait for Me," is a glorious return back to subdued strings, bass and dance, but with a much more soothing tone.

If "Play" was a celebration of the zest of life and love, "Wait for Me" is a calm reflection on life, love and beauty itself. It's slower and slightly more melancholy than "Play" ever was, but it sounds so relaxing. And it is one of his absolute best.

To give an example of how serene the album gets, the song featuring the scratchy vocals of a female singer in "Walk With Me" sounds as depressing as Beck's slowest depressing album "Sea Change." With the vocalist singing, "All I know is this journey, won't you let me sleep," it's clear that Moby is emotionally down in this song. But unlike Beck, Moby's melancholy is a warm caress, filled with comforting strings which enrapture listeners.

Even though Moby sings with more fear than we've ever heard before in the song "Mistake," there's a wonderful gentleness in the silky smooth strings, the thumping bass drum and the rich chords of the guitars. So while he may be singing, "Oh you've never felt this lost before/The whole world is closing doors/I never wanted anything more," the music is a heartfelt Debussy-like mix of trance and ambience.

Probably the most beautiful song, however, is "Jtlf," which is rich with acoustic guitars, heavenly synth string orchestrations, beautiful harp-like sounds and the soothing, wonderful voice of a female singer.

Moby says this album was inspired by a speech given by David Lynch about creativity.

Yeah, you can stream it at NPR under Music, First Listen. I was just wondering what happened with Moby. I used Porcelain for an imaginary soundtrack for the imaginary film version of a friend's novel, and now it is on my alarm clock each morning as I wake. Still gorgeous after all these... Read More
