General Comment So peaceful. My go to song to ease my mind. No Replies Log in to reply. There was an error. Eleven months after Play was released, it was sellingcopies a week. I was on tour constantly, drunk pretty much the entire time and it was just a blur.
And then all of a sudden movie stars started coming to my concerts and I started getting invited to fancy parties and suddenly the journalists who wouldn't return my publicist's Memory Gospel - Moby - Play (The B Sides) (CD) were talking about doing cover stories.
It was a really odd phenomenon. The licensing approach proved successful in increasing Play ' s visibility, and subsequently radio and MTV airplay for the album's songs began to pick up.
Play received widespread critical acclaim upon release. On Metacriticwhich assigns a normalized rating to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has a score of 84 out of based on 20 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim". Reviewing for The Village Voice inRobert Christgau said the album's sampled recordings would not "shout anywhere near as loud and clear" without Moby's "ministrations—his grooves, his pacing, his textures, his harmonies, sometimes his tunes, and mostly his grooves, which honor not just dance music but the entire rock tradition it's part of.
According to Rolling Stone" Play wasn't the first album to make a rock star out of an insular techno nerdnik, but it was the first to make one a pop sensation. Although some techno futurists still disparage the gorgeous Playit qualified as a futurist work simply by redefining the concept of "commercial. So Moby's handlers swamped the mass market through the side door, placing swatches of all 18 songs most many times on movie Memory Gospel - Moby - Play (The B Sides) (CD) TV soundtracks and in ads for the likes of VolkswagenBaileys Irish Cream and American Express.
FM exposure followed. But the main reason this album will sound familiar the way Beethoven's Ninth does to a classical ignoramus is that little bits of it have seeped into most Americans' brains. For this be grateful, because those bits are intensely pleasurable as melody or texture or sometimes beat, and because Moby has ordered, paced, and segued them and their intimate surroundings into something that suggests a surging and receding whole. A Treacherous Three rap powers "Bodyrock," but most of the identifiable sources are little-known blues and gospel singers first archived by folklorist Alan Lomax.
Folk purists might well claim this re-use cheapens them. But here's betting musical folk like the singers themselves are plenty proud somewhere. English singer-songwriter Adele cited Play as an influence on her album 25saying: "There's something that I find really holy about that Play album The way it makes me feel.
Even though there's nothing holy or preachy about it. There's just something about it—maybe the gospel samples. But it makes me feel alive, that album, still. And I remember my mum having that record. Sample credits . Credits are adapted from the album's liner notes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
