    Okay, I stumbed upon this album 2 years after its release, as I often to do with music which I don't think I'll like, have never heard, and anyway have something better to listen to. Then at the record store, Reckless Records in Chicago, there it was staring at me and saying "This is a good album, and you haven't enjoyed Play that much, even as much as Hotel.

So I have in, paid the 8.99 (used price!), and I'm glad I did. This album can be played when I want some beautiful sounds, the kind which I don't already have. So good on Moby to forge ahead and to make this fine album and I give it a "7." Expand

    This is a good album. It need proper listening to... end to end which I think is the intention. Really timeless. You an get lost in it. Grown, intelligent up stuff. Right up there with his best. Lacrimae is my favourite at the moment.

    He'll never repeat Play's monumental success, of course, but he's building a might back catalogue. [July 2011, p. 116]

    As with the majority of his work, the most notable tracks are all instrumental. [May 2011, p.89]

    The majority of the album is the future of all dinnerparties, the dinnerparty that never ends, a spooling aeon of trite politeness, as your dry android host projects his Facebook photos into your retina for eternity.
