Amoeba Review

09/29/2013

Moby has been making records for 20 years. He's been toying with gospel and soul samples for about that long, occasionally venturing out beyond the samples and writing his own brand of electronic soul and gospel anchored in his early '90s NYC rave roots and their flipside - beaty, chilled out techno. On Innocents, the artist formerly known as Richard Hall works, for the first time, with an outside producer, Mark "Spike" Stent, who has worked with everyone from Massive Attack to the Spice Girls. So, guess what? It's a pop record, and it's filled with celebrity guests. Moby has worked with guest vocalists and vocal samples that perform like guest vocalists for his entire career, so this format comes easily, allowing singers like Mark Lanegan and Wayne Coyne to really shine in a niche that's sort of been waiting for them, latent in Moby's music. Critics still whining about Hall's ages-ago break from clubby electronica need to get over it, he hasn't made an album that even attempted that sort of thing since roughly 1995. Moby is and has been an upper echelon pop musician for at least ten years and Innocents is a continuation of that concern.
