Moby Voodoo Child -Baby Monkey



Got a party but only a single CD player?
Want a good dance album? Get this one. Its of course by the amazing Moby traipsing around as the reincarnated Voodoo Child. All the tracks flow beautifuly into each other and every song is a hypnotic electronic experience. This reminds me that I meant to get the follow up album End of Everything and never did. I need to go do that!

Random aside...I remember this one time when Moby was on the Conan O'Brian show and I believe Heidi Klum and Liam Nieson were on there. I can't remember exactly, but thing tall and big gorgeous people. In case you didn't know, Moby is a man of small physical stature and when he walked on Mr. and Mrs. Giant politely stood up to greet him. Conan O'Brian is freaking huge to, so the poor man was completely drawfed by the people sharing the stage. O'Brian had Heidi and Liam stand with Moby in the middle and instantly the taller individuals knew why. The leaned in as the camera cropped a tight shot. "You guys look like his parents!" he explained. It was cute.

Listen to:
"Synth"
"Strings"

These tracks are really cool, but they don't seem "straightforward" to me (not that it dissapoints). It sounds very trippy and avant-garde to me. I dunno. Maybe I'm just stupid or way out of touch with current techno music. I guess I wouldn't know what to think if I heard some "real" experimental stuff.

I wouldn't say they're that experimental. If you read his bio, he flat out said "I just want to make a good dance album" which is what it is. You also have to sorta listen to the entire album to get the full picture. They morph from one theme to the next seamlessly.

Is the album more in the way of the greatness of Play, or the dissapointing rubbish that was 18?

I must admit I'd never heard of it until now, but will have to look into it.

(Oh and by the way, congratualtions on the Erdős of 2, never seen anyone below 4 before, hehe)

I would say Baby Monkey is more "easy listening" fun fluff. The whole Voodoo Child personal is quite a bit stylistically from usual Moby, so it's kind of hard to compare.

I would say Baby Monkey doesn't have the intelligence or innovation that Play has, but it isn't as much of a let down as 18 was.

Yeah I read the statement where Moby flat out said that this is not experimental. In my earlier comment I was knowingly contradicting Moby's own description of his own work. Jeez, when did I become such a jerk? :)
