Wait for Me |


The press materials for Moby's new album reveal that he recorded it in his bedroom. Unintended or not, the result is a drowsy disc that is the equivalent of aural Ambien. After 2008's Last Night returned the electronica wizard to the dance floor, he's in major need of a Red Bull on ponderous tracks that, for all their moody atmospherics, don't really go anywhere, lacking memorable melodies and beats. Even Moby's tried-and-true trick of appropriating gospel voices on "Walk with Me" feels pretty tired.
