Moby : Extreme Ways

Over the top...

And so Moby’s multi-faceted weirdness continues apace. This month, is he going to be Gary Numan without (quite literally) the hair? The studied techno-rock boffin we all know and love from a thousand adverts and ‘funky’ office receptions around the world? Or just a bloke who can’t quite believe his luck of recent years and, hey, who cares about the songs any more anyway? Strangely enough, ‘Extreme Ways’ features a disco-inspired, keyboard-swirling bass line that wouldn’t be out of place on a The Charlatans track, but it’s ruined by Moby tediously droning "Oh baby, then it fell apart... like it always does" over the top. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
