I so desperately want to get ahold of that guitar and TUNE it. Drives me a bit crazy.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
oh yessssssssssssssssssssss

almost 20 years of hearing this. Still love it. up to a 9.

There's a documentary on Moby on Netflix that's worth checking out. He comes across as a softspoken, self effacing humble guy.

Simple, atmospheric, evocative. Doesn't get old. 
Beautiful.

Like this one - solid 8
I kind of think "King Crimson" when I hear this track.

 maybe not a better album, but certainly some great material followed this..DrLex wrote:

Too bad there are some obvious glitches in this rip from CD read errors…
Those who don't feel the build up need to go back and listen to 1.00 minutes in and then 2.20.

Good to know.  I am old enough to have owned thousands of albums in my life; my regular listening tastes include everything heard here on RP to classical to bluegrass to hip-hop to gospel to world to jazz to etc, but not too much C&W; and this work by Moby is fresh, innovative, moving, quite well crafted, AND it is a serious favorite of mine.

What the hell people, this is a good song just enjoy it.

While I listened to the song I read the comments. Several of them refered to the song building up. I waited and waited but there was no build up and then the song was over. Very disappointing....a totally meaningless piece of music for the elevator.

 
My overall comment is not as harsh as your, the piece did lack a high point and just meandered off like elevator muzak........

I want to cry.  So beautiful.  The segue after David Bowie's Lazarus.  Thank you Moby for reminding that David and life is ever lasting and ever loving.

Slightly ?!!!? Must be intentional. But why?
Gone from an 8 to a 9.  Love the out of tune guitar build up, then the arpeggios kick in. Then a cracking crescendo. I don't think we get enough humming in popular music. 
Now there's a segue (from the ending notes of John Barleycorn to Everloving, should the playlist alter).
I love the way this builds slowly. Great album from an artist whose other works, I don't really care for.

This music is lame uninspired midi ramblings. This track though has some extra lamo beginner guitar chords to add to the general nausea. How this rubbish ever became popular is a mystery to me and just confirms how little content young minds need to be satisfied, as long as it repeats alot…..   God bless the PSD button!

 
Damn, don't sugarcoat it.


The guitar is slightly out of tune in the intro.
This entire album was excellent ! It makes me feel like closing my eyes and breathe softly, letting the song carry me away {#Good-vibes}

I find Moby a bit like Beck in that I really like some of his stuff and some of it is PSD worthy.
This song was one of my calibration songs for my stereo. Listen to it on high end vintage hardware from a very good source. Amazing.
When I hear this song I always think of the movie earthlings (www.earthlings.com)

Been a fan of this dude since go was originally released. Listened to all the personality changes in the music style. . Now find so much of the 90's material dated,  but this one is perfect and timeless. 10{#Boohoo}
Moby ... his "sound" just sucks me in, over and over, doesn't matter what song it is.  Amazing artist !!!

I bought REM's Murmur "sound unheard" based on Rolling Stone's appreciation of it. (I was a teenager in suburbia who was craving new music.) I never, ever regretted it. I like this Moby song. So I guess everyone's experience is different.

 
I bought REM's Reckoning based on a Rollingstone review....one of my all time favs....I too, like this Moby song....even if it is too short.

Didn't realize this was Moby. This I like very much.

Seabiscuit, was on HBO last night, this song is in the movie,  very strange, I now have to ride a horse. Or bet on one.

Moby has done nothing good ever in my ears.

I don't care much for most of Moby's stuff, but he was very funny on "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" a couple years ago.
This song is a natural for a movie soundtrack, so it got me thinking, how many movies has this been a part of?  Cue IMDB:

"Fields of Fuel," "Seabiscuit," "Day of Reckoning," "Any Given Sunday," and the ever-famous, multi-Oscar-winner, "He Died with a Felafel in His Hand!"  Really.

Excellent.
This guy can put a track together once in a while...not bad live either. Saw him at the Sheperd´s Bush in London, around 99 or 2000, played a version of Springsteen´s "I´m on Fire", and spoke of how snotty he once was when he demeaned artists such as the man from NJ. Guy shared his maturing process, had some perspective and paid homage, which is always nice to see in a person.
Boring.  NEXT!
Normally, Moby's music strikes me as inane, but I like this.

I was into this album right around the time I started playing keyboards and dabbling in music. Every time I hear something from it now, I realize what a huge influence it was.

It's sunny beaches in Koh Phi Phi with my brother before the turn of the millenium for me.  Ones never to be repeated I'm afraid now the whole island is swanky spa's.  Good memories.
Hearing Moby after the Blue Man Group reminds me of something my son said when he was about eight. This was about the time this album came out, or maybe a couple of years after. I was a big Moby fan; in fact, everyone in the house was. An Intel commercial came on the TV, I think for the Pentium IV chips, featuring the Blue Man Group. My son turned around and looked at me and said, "Mom! Look! Blue Mobies!"

Edited to add: Okay, I see told this story before. It's official. I have become my grandpa.

When this came out I almost bought the album, never having heard of Moby, based on a Rolling Stone or AMG  RAVING review. I never got to it. And in the ensuing years have become so grateful for my lack of followthrough and saving the $$, as few as they may have been.

As I recall, the last several tracks on this CD were awesome — skip the "hits" at the beginning of the CD and head straight for these.
During a storm, music (like this) sounds so much better..Thank You Moby for your on-going support of Battered Women Shelters {#Clap}

oooooh...thanks for the idea... {#Smile}

Play became a commercial and cultural phenomenon, selling over 10 million copies worldwide<2> (the biggest-selling electronica album ever).  -  I did not know that.
One of my all time favorite records, my favorite song OFF that record, and an excellent piece of art to roll to.

Now that is funny. No doubt, Moby was one of the little fish you had for lunch one day

I like it. But I struggle to understand Moby's music.
one of my favorite Moby tracks..it transports

Great song!
