Product Description

While hailed as one of the most important musical figures since the early 90s, Moby has enjoyed great success bringing music to a mainstream audience by giving the notoriously anonymous electronic genre an identity and recognizable face. From his 1992 debut, with the massive club hit 'Go,' to the groundbreaking success of the inventive' Play', to the critical acclaim of last year's 'Hotel', Moby has become and iconic figure in the world of pop music, as well as a household name. The DELUXE EDITION features an 11-track remix CD personally compiled by Moby including the legendary 'Bodyrock' Olav Basoski remix The deluxe edition tracks are NOT available on ANY Moby full-length CD. Many of the remixes on the 2nd disc are hard to find. Several were only released as commercial 12 inch singles or on a compilation, others have only partially been featured within a megamix, and three more tracks have never been released at all! In 2007, V2 will release a single disc version of the Greatest Hits. None of the incredible content from the remix CD will be included. The deluxe edition will not be kept active indefinitely, so this is the time to maximize this great package.

It's easy to dismiss the music of this cute, vegan, bare-pated relative of Herman Melville, especially if you don't actually listen to the music and focus instead on his ultra-PC interview style or the manner in which he sold dozens of songs to commercials and film soundtracks back in Y2K. But to do so is to knee-jerkedly miss out on some very fine and innovative music by one of the most influential musicians of the last decade. With the exception of two tracks (one of them the title tune), Go is a best-of from the years that Moby's been on the V2 label, from 1999's breakthrough hit Play onward. But Play--with its uncanny reworking of field recordings with playful beats and ambient textures--remains the artist's finest moment. A full disc of remixes and a smattering of unreleased songs (including a rad new number with Debbie Harry on guest vocals) make this an essential purchase for rabid fans. And, as a judicious selection of Play-era material is included alongside the finest songs from Moby's subsequent albums, 18 and Hotel, this is also the perfect entry point for the more casual fan. --Mike McGonigal

This is a great collection showcasing some of the high points of Moby's career. All the greatest hits from rescent years including "Porcelain", "South Side", & "Go". The real cool part of this collection is the additional remix disc. Included are remix's from some of dance music's top talent such as "Mylo", "Tiesto", "Oakenfold", & "Corsten" to only name a few. You'll already have most of these if like me you've already bought his singles, but it's still nice having all these on one disc. The only gripe I have & it's a small gripe is the lack of "Hybrid" remixs on disc 2. Again, not a huge issue & definately not a deal breaker, but it woulda' been nice seeings as Hybrid's mix's of both "Southside" & "Bodyrock" blow "Basoski" & "Heller"'s mix's outta the water. All in all this collection honors Moby well. It may not have everything, but still a great jumping on point for casual listeners & anyone wanting to jump into the world of Moby.

This is actually a good collection of Moby, though mostly of his work from "Play" and afterwards. Of course there's still a few flaws. It's only 61 minutes, should be a good 70. There's alot from his huge album "Play", but it's still missing "Bodyrock". It IS on the remix disc, but is nearly a different song. Also from "Play" is "South Side", but it is NOT the superior version with Gwen Stefani. Why not? Who knows. However, the new track "New York, New York" with Debbie Harry is good, and we get other big hits such as "We Are All Made Of Stars" and "Beautiful". Plus a new mix of "Go" and a live "Feeling So Real". The remix disc is a bonus for fanatics. Others might not care so much. This collection would go well with "Mobysongs 93-98". Still does the job alone though.

The remix CD is fun to listen to. It reminds me a lot of how I figure Paul Oakenfold would remix Moby's music. It's very trance techno and there are a few tracks on there that get you shakin' your b**t in the car seat a bit. The best-of CD is basically all of Moby's best songs. You can't make that CD any better unless you somehow improve Moby's original songs. Good work.

Other than a couple of songs that were hits years ago, the rest of this thing sucks big time. Lots of songs with the boom, boom, boom boom etc. dance mix tape beat that certainly, if its the 'best of' means there is nothing really good. It was a big disappointment, just full of junk tracks. If you want to buy something you won't play again, this is the ticket.

The newest collection from Moby consisits most of the singles that made airwaves and television in the late nineties til now. "Go: The Very Best of Moby" contains several songs from his last three albums- "Play," "18," and "Hotels"- in which I already own all three albums, and all are very excellent music achievements. But what caught my eye was mostly the remix disc, and that he had a new single and updated remix of "Go." As for the review on Disc One, it is not a surprise that this highlights Moby's singles from the "Play" album until now. It includes some of my favorites such as "Natural Blues," "South Side," "We Are All Made of Stars," a different edit of "In My Heart", "Lift Me Up," "Dream About Me," and "Beautiful." The collaboration with Debra Harry on "New York, New York" seemed like an ordinary track and lacked some of the emotion Moby puts into most of his works. I wonder if it was just a left over track from one of Moby's previous albums that he didn't use. The 2006 mix of "Go" is good, with a very upbeat sound but still has the same vibe and feel as the original track. Another bonus that I enjoyed is the last track "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters." It is a beautiful track of ambiance and spirit, and was the closing song in the last scene and credits of the 1995 film "Heat." Not a shocker at all of the outcome of the first disc- a great collection of Moby's finest works. Now, on to the bonus disc: the remixes. Remixes of Moby have appeared on several mixes from some of the world's best DJ's and producers, so that got me excited when I saw that this was being thown in with the album. Some of the remixes are average to good, but I have heard better remixes of the same songs and some remixed songs that did not make it to the disc.Read more ›

I purchased this Moby CD as I heard one of the song on the Born Identity series. I was quite please to find that a large portion of these songs a very good. It is great listing music and a joy from beginning to end. I would say that it is high quality music with a lot of talent put into it's making. That from a guy who likes all variety of music as long as it was put together by real "artists" and not the made up type.

Others have reviewed the content, so I will address different aspects of the media itself. No one else has mentioned this flaw, so I'm not sure if it's the disk or distributor. First, there was only one CD, and the Opendisc content to supposedly access extra content on disc, instead forces you to register on Moby.com and then tries to sell you more online content. Nowhere on the CD itself is there any visible or software readable extra content, so this is fraudulent & misleading. Second the Opendisc links & support are outdated, most don't work at all, their security certificate has expired & their links redirect you to unknown sites. I've NOT been able to access ANY EXTRA video or music content on this CD/disc. In addition, when I tried using the Opendisc page to access extras online where it dumped me after registering (for the missing content promised on CD insert), it would not play or load them either! [I can open & access any content on or offline, except this Moby Opendisc supposedly on-CD content, or online]. I've sent a bug report but have little hopes of receiving a reply or solution, since too much is NOT working to find a simple fix. Another mentioned the 4 versions of this CD, ALL are foreign, NONE are US, the closest is labeled International, and each contains different "extra" content--if any at all.

The music is excellent, of course. Very diverse styles sampled & mixed, mostly by Moby, within one disc including predominantly blues (my favorite), a couple rap samples, several pop songs/singers such as Debbie Harry, plus electronic &/or dance mix music. A wide variety of styles which I enjoy most as it's rare from one artist or group to have different genres of music. So the songs were amazing, I enjoyed every track.
