Default What do you think of Moby?

I don't know too much about his music. Actually I'm listening to him for the first time as I write this post. I know he's considered popular, but I wanted to know what you guys thought of him.

By the way, I'm listening to Moby's "Honey".

Yeah for the most part I agree. Before the release of
"Play" he was at his peak. After that he started to sell all his songs to commercials. He has played a huge influence on mainstream electronica. I actually found out that when he was in his teenage years he was part of a punk outfit, which is pretty cool. I think he is musically well rounded.

"in this world" is one of his better new songs.

Was Moby in a punk band? Was the band any good? The only thing I liked by Moby was his cover of Mission of Burma's "Revolver". That song kicks ass. I think he did a good version IMO. I think he's a talented guy, but I'm not into his music. I would probably like his earlier stuff. His commerical stuff just sucks.

Yeah i like him. He is a very talented dude. Its true he did start in a punk band but i don't know what they were called

I like the Play album the best, Its mad to chill too. I also like how he uses old old blues samples in his music on that album. That song "go" is also mad.

He was in three bands before he hit twenty. He was in bands called the Vatican Commandos, Flipper, and Ultra Vivid Scene.
