The DVD version of Moby's multiplatinum CD Play is an almost perfect audiovisual synthesis of personality and uncompromised creativity, and, best of all, Moby never takes any of it too seriously. It's a given that Moby fans will totally dig the music, but it's Moby's hilarious 20-minute home video ("Give an Idiot a Camcorder") that everyone will be buzzing about, since it's as giddy as a Monty Python highlight reel and almost as inventive, with Moby himself hosting on his 2000 European tour, appearing in multiple guises and voices (Scottish, German, French, and classic dude-speak), and playing a variety of wacky interviewers with himself as their subject. Who knew the guy was this funny?
The included music videos are equally clever in their expression of Moby's benevolent, irreverent worldview, and while the studio recordings from Play have spanned the globe, now we also have a cluster of impeccable television performances (from BBC's Later with Jools Holland) that capture the music's remarkable transformation from one-man show to full-band realization. All of these ingredients can be viewed separately in addition to being combined and transformed in the DVD's "mega-mix" section, offering 90 minutes of mixes and redubs by some of the world's finest mix-masters, accompanied by a hypnotic exhibition of visual art that lends new meaning to the term "eye candy," capable of turning any home into a mind-blowing rave scene. Through it all, the word "play" is explored in all its definitions, gloriously filtered through the psyche of Moby, who embraces his inner geek to become the life of any party. --Jeff Shannon

I've read the other reviews and it seems that the 5 star rating is only diluted by people who didn't get enough, or find their favorite song there. While that would be a fine comment I don't think it should affect the rating of what you DO get.
You get Great videos in an easy-to-use format, you get a megamix (best I've seen or know about, period.), you get a short film with Moby, heck this disc does EVERYTHING!
I am a pretty big Moby fan, and I just wish that he would put out DVD's for his older stuff, but I understand that he would probably rather invest his energy in moving on to new things.
I was particularly delighted that he included his other 'Bodyrock' video ('Fire') and not just the 'Auditions' version, I wasn't originally very impressed with the video.
This Techno/Electronica DVD has no equal on the market, as far as I know.
