Moby does some great stuff. He is hit or miss for me. this  tune wasn't a hit.

 DON'T insult David Lynch like that!  He is leagues more creative and intelligent.

Typical Moby. Start with a groovy hook...and go nowhere with it.
Yes, samplers certainly do exist.

Come on, guys. Artists make stuff they like. It's their baby, if we don't like it, we can switch it off.

Move on Moby with this song
one of my favorites... great track on a great album
I don't know... I just don''t get what he's trying to say here.
Started out sounding cool, like it could have gone somewhere, then it turned into Moby.
Initially, I loved it, but it didn't go anywhere. Too much like everything else in this genre. Middle of the road. 5
oh no ! clicking "+1" every time I hear the song, I've now reached the maximum !!! Moby is the only one who can make such dreamlike and ethereal music that carries me away every single time. I love it <3  
Nice!

Thank you for joining us. We appreciate and respect your opinion. The management would like to use you reference to 'buttons' and ask that you please press the one that states 'PSD'. The rest of us cool cats will continue to roll with this. Again, thank you, good bye.

{#Smile}Just sittin' here doing my Rainbow Loom, foot tapping, said to myself this sounds like Moby, and it WAS!  Got to love his distinct sound...
Moby time? PSD time!

It's been two and a half years.
Have you learned to move in the right ways to enjoy it more?
One of my Top 10 albums

And what exactly is wrong with taking a big corporations money if they want to give it to you? How is this selling out exactly? Why is that ethically incorrect? 
 
Not hard to figure out, is it superfido?

If the results of the corp's business practices are 'ethically incorrect', then receiving any profit to provide a good or service to that corp would be aiding & abetting, directly or indirectly, those bad ethical practices, thus 'selling out' for one's own selfish monetary gain.
Not cool!
And what exactly is wrong with taking a big corporations money if they want to give it to you? How is this selling out exactly? Why is that ethically incorrect? Perhaps the argument that one sells out is really a way to mask the underlying jealousy and envy one feels because another person has "made it" big. robco1 wrote:
Interesting. I really liked this when it first came out; now I find it "ho-hum." No staying power, or a reaction to the car commercials? BTW, Moby has defended his "selling out" to the car companies by claiming that by taking their royalty money and spending it on anti-corporate and global warming interests, he can make up for helping sell gas-guzzling cars. I wonder how much profit the car companies made from the commercials? Maybe more than they paid him? On the other hand, we are all in many ways participants in this unsustainable (read: suicidal) society, so I suppose we must all find a balance or compromise that we can live with. Philosophical Saturday, it is!

Not bad for folks making coffee at 5am, or musing philosophically at 3am...
Too bad his Michelin man coat couldn't hold this in as well.
I have to agree with some comments below. Even with little talent you can create songs like this with Apples Garageband in a few hours. Anyway. If you like it, enjoy it :)
ooooo. ooooo. oooo-oo! Deep stuff. Yuck.

Yes we can blame him! If you check out his web-site, he espouses anti-corporate sentiment etc., then goes and sells his songs to the likes of Ford Motor Corp. and others..... the guy sucks.
Hm. It never occurred to me to go to his website. Well, then, yeah, ok. I take it back.

I always have trouble with that "acceptable" rating (4). Acceptable when? Not right now. Acceptable for what. Probably could come up with a lot of answers for that.
Sounds like a bad Kate Bush sample...

Actually, it was Queequeg, Ishmael's bunk-mate who hurled the harpoon.
The Captain Queeg referenced is Humphrey Bogart's character from the "Caine Mutiny". First rate. I think Moby is listenable, but it borders on easy listening.

It could have been good. I can make 5-10 of these type of tracks a day. Come on. To be considered good(better than a 5) you need to do something more than this Moby
Moby sucks, but if you're the one pumpin out the great tunes let's hear 'em! (if that's you Thom I'm sorry :notworthy: )
"Everything is Wrong" in Sea Monkey land? Is that why they're wailing?

Well get off your keister and do it then. He's richer'n God by now. If you don't want to do it for the money, then just donate it to RP.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Always the same deep s_ _t! And you say he's a Genius?? Just BORING!!! :wall:

Contrary to many opinions, I really LIKE Moby. Everything prior to Hotel was exceptional, IMHO.

I feel ya. To me, Moby is one little step away from elevator music.

Out of curiosity, does any one know where this was used in Scream? Or was it just on the soundtrack? Hasty_Manic wrote:
This song was featured on Moby's masterful 1995 album 'Everything is Wrong' and also in the 1996 Wes Craven thriller 'Scream.' 'First Cool Hive' is a pretty affecting song. Give it a chance everyone! :music:
when moby was cool
:meditate:
:sunny:
Well, at least Moby got it right this time. The name of the album pretty much sums up my review of this song: Everything's wrong!

Well put.
cue. Hero looks into the heroine's eyes, cracks a smart one liner. Both exchange knowing glances. Heroine has a knowing slight smile on her face. One cool hive starts, the volume low at first. The hero puts on his sunglasses and slides into his convertable. Heroine looks at her man her head titled, the smile still there. He will be back. Hero drives through the town. The camera zooms out ever so slowly as the hero drives away. Credits roll as one cool hive plays on.
This is nice but how the hell does he come up with titles for his songs? What IS "First Cool Hive" anyway?
Wow. Moby I haven't heard before. This is the kind of Moby I prefer to all that crappy new stuff. Assuming of course that this is old stuff. :think:
Where's Captain Queeg and his harpoon when you really need 'em?
Neat! Placebo covers "Runnin' up that hill" and I thought this was KB....
mobyexcellent -- a new superlative. Overhead lights in office now set to "off."

I'm sure that's a sample from Kate Bush's "Sensual World" in there... that wavering "mmm"...

I meant it as a good thing. Very "chill" music. Anyway, good stuff, in my humble opinion.
Reminds me of the Scream soundtrack. Great song.

A friend turned me on to Moby's "Play". I liked it so much, I bought "18" the day it was released. Now, I hear Moby's stuff all over television, particularly notable is the Jaguar commercial with the animated jaguar and engine... Moby is PHENOMENAL!
