After Moby's US contract with Instinct Records had ended and he had signed with Elektra, they released a handful of albums made up of unreleased and hard to find tracks. So after Moby had changed labels again to get his records released in the USA by V2, Elektra went down the same road and made this CD to cash in on the international success Moby's album "Play" was getting.

This time though, we get no unreleased or rare material, just a bunch of tracks from the albums Moby had released on Elektra, "Move", "Everything Is Wrong", "I Like To Score" and the US version of "Animal Rights", which had been very different from the European release.

So nothing for fans, but this CD might be a good start for newcomers to get a feel of the diversity and talent Moby had in those years. From ecstatic dance to ambient and quiet acoustic pieces, this CD features every style of music Moby had laid his hands on during the 90s (except his punk rock excursions, but that's fine for me).

Be warned though: The version of "Go" featured here is not the well-known "Woodtick Mix", but a faster, techno version that had been featured on "I Like To Score".

I bought this for "Go" and "Feeling So Real" and ended liking quite a few of the other tracks too. Styles from from arranged instrumentals to all out rasta-DJ-sampling techno.
