Stoner + Nerd...great combo!!

Yes Bill, You've striked a note with me again. It's like you've walked to my CD collection and put on one of my favorites... Telepaphy? Do you drink vodka too? Cheers from Kremlin.
 

I knew it!

boring me to death. It's a finger exercise on a piano and the worst possible synth sound. BAD music... Bad bad. like thinking you can release your practice jams on a record and you fans won't know the difference. who does it say more about... the group or its fans? 

 
I'm thinking it says more about you.  Regardless, de gustibus non disputandum est.

It certainly says something about this particular, cranky listener.

Well, and on the Everything Is Wrong album, this song is immediately followed by "Feeling So Real". A really excellent transition. {#Hearteyes}
Unfortunately, not here in the radio playlist. Hymn ends and... nothing. :-(
Amazingly beautiful.
Awesome Beauty!!
A lovely start to the new year 
Nice, very nice.

As a fellow nutmeger from CT, I've never really though too much of Moby...his stuff is all rather derivative...this track as well. I thought I was listening to early Vangelis or even Mike Oldfield..just don't think this guy is breaking much new ground. Style over substance I'd say.
 
Really are you comparing this guy to the great Oldfield? How many Oldfield's albums did you listen? Haven't sense, totally different music and styles. 
Lots of interesting instrumental stuff coming across the speakers today - nice work, RP.
I like Moby *ducks flying missiles*
I slipped into a deep state of meditation many times while laying on the couch and listening to this album back in the day. 
The last 2 minutes or so of that actually lasted over an hour in torture time.  Like  bad 2nd semester music student with a cheap Sanyo keyboard bad...

good stuff .


can't believe the hate for this.. i love this track.

Look in the mirror
who is dead?
Even the cover of the album is reminiscent of the Jarre album I wore out eons ago.
My heart leapt: "Jean Michel Jarre!"  OK, maybe I should check out this Moby guy.

...i really don't think that's fair to oldfield nor vangelis - moby's not playing in their league...
nice.  a true talent
This is such an under-appreciated album.  There are some real gems on it.  This is wonderful.

I thought I was listening to SOMA :) Check out "No More" by Beatsystem. Tasty piece of Drone.

Glenn Gould rocks, absolutely the best Bach interpretations ever...

Cooool. I missed this the first time around. I didn't catch Moby until the later stuff!
I like it as a musical snippet, not sure how it holds up as a "song", but I do enjoy the progressions.

I think it's Glenn Gould but I don't know who Ultravox is. They probably sampled Glenn Gould too.
bo-ring.

I like this a lot. I'm proud to be the only one to give it an "8". I'm not all that familiar with Moby's music,It's on my musical to-do list, but if this cut a fair example to his work, I'm sure I won't regret the purchase.
Back with another one of those block-rockin'. . .uh, piano melodies. :cool:
C'mon Moby
