Moby Ambient US CD album
Long before music marketers coined the term ambient to describe ethereal electronic music that's too slow to dance to, Moby had already written several songs that fit nicely into this genre. They are included, along with newer material, on this album. Moby's more conventional song structures will appeal to those who find Robert Fripp and Brian Eno's experimentation unpalatable. "Myopia" is a good representation of Moby's ability to write accessible ambient music that never strays too far into the abstract. --Beth Bessmer

1) There are some tracks that are incredibly short and others that seemed to go on too long like Dog (which also sounded more techno than ambient).
2) There are really no memorable tracks here. Yes, Moby has done some stunning ambient tracks like God Moving Over the Face of the Waters, First Cool Hive, Hymn, My Weakness, and Rushing, but, unfortunately, there's nothing like any of these tracks on this album.
There are some good tracks like Heaven, Bad Days, My Beautiful Blue Sky, and Lean on Me, but nothing to get excited about. Pick this album up if you like Moby like I do, but don't be expecting a Play, I Like to Score, or an Everything Is Wrong with this album.
I did by a cd single while in the Uk back in 1990 which i really loved.
So jumped at the chance to by this and was not disappointed.
He isn't Jarre and is in his own mould which is brilliant.More like early Orb if anything.
Who ever buys this cd wont be disappointed.At over an hour easy to listen to.
