MagnetApr 17, 2018It's not as fun as [1999's Play], but the broad outlines comes from a similar Play-book, with Moby talk/sung vocals amid coos and hums of female singers. ... It's an inviting album but it's bleak. [No. 150, p.56]
Mar 2, 2018He’s turning them [conflicting emotions] into a rapturous piece of art like this instead of venting his spleen in the echo chamber of social media is worthy of praise and attention. Just do yourself the favor of taking this album in moderation. A little goes a long way.
Mar 1, 2018Too often--as on ‘The Last Of Goodbyes’, with its limp rap and doleful Burialisms--it sounds like Moby pastiching his old self. On the flip side, ‘Welcome To Hard Times’, a sunny Balearic soul shuffle, is lovely, and the ghostly piano haunting ‘The Tired And The Hurt’ contains the muscle memory of his masterpiece ‘Porcelain’, but they’re isolated sparkles.

Moby's latest is lush and soothing even at its most melancholic. It feels earnest and sincere even at its most awkward. It taps into a similar subdued power that Lambchop did on FLOTUS. I know this guy gets a bad rap for churning out sentimental electronica mood pieces for the masses, and I'm not going to argue whether or not he deserves that critical sneer, but I can already tell this gem is going under the radar and it's a shame, because it's one of the best albums so far this year.… Expand

This really was aThis album I think is going to be the sort of gem that gets lost in the shuffle but could potentially get it's due later. This really was a surprising album for me, I enjoy it as a cohesive whole and can get through the whole album without feeling like I'm ever taken out of it. Which is the opposite of my experience with the only 2 other Moby albums I've listened to (Play and 18). Give it a few spins before writing it off. Good album… Expand
