  1. They’re perhaps a tad unoriginal - a hint of Felix here, a spot of 'Positive Education' there, a sniff of classic Sabres Of Paradise and some 'Stakker Humanoid' round the corner ­ but hey, what’s wrong with nostalgia? Especially when it gets your hands in the air like you just don’t care.
  2. 60
    Has a strangely nostalgic feel. [Mar 2004, p.104]
  3. 60
    As self-indulgent side projects go, this could be a whole lot worse. [Apr 2004, p.139]
  4. 60
    In the clubs, Baby Monkey will find a welcome family. [May 2004, p.87]
  5. The fact is, Moby is still the best person to make records that sound like early Moby.
  6. It might be a better album if a tad self-edited, but overall it'll do for most Mobyites.
  7. When he inches toward the current, Moby tips too close to listless trance. And when it sticks with the kind of choppy, anthemic techno he knows best, Baby Monkey sounds more like a nimble one-off than a meaningful return.
  8. Often sounds virtually identical to a generic dance record circa 1992.
  9. It's competent, if fairly faceless. [23/30 Jan 2004, p.99]
  10. 50
    These tracks lack the energy to power a glow stick. [Mar 2004, p.96]
  11. Baby Monkey has nothing of the danger, adventure or indeed chemical frisson that defined rave culture--it's just smug sonic wallpaper. [Mar 2004, p.113]
