"Many Moby's fans often treat this album as his weakest effort collecting rare,unreleased and re-recorded tracks used in movies.actually thees songs are not that bad as some say.
Of course it is not a Regular album but it is not lacking any chronology and it is very good as you listen to it from begining to the end.1."Novio" - Typical slow moby track with ambient piano and some gregorian choirs.very poetic and relaxing. 5/5
2."james bond theme" - energetic,agressive and dancable theme with kiler guitar.horns are outstanding.i really like that track,it is really dynamic and fun 5/5
3."go" - Moby's classic,his first hit.Contains theme from David Lynch's Twin Peaks theme.dark,full of electronic beats,amazing.this version is refreshed a bit but still very fine. 5/5
4."Ah-ah" - very psychedelic acid-techno song.wierd but good,this songs was on his debut album,here it is remixed and it sounds more agressive 4/5
5."I like to score" - quite short song driven by funky guitar.it is only interlude for me,nice but nothing special 3/5
6."oil 1" - this was on "the saint" movie,fast dance track,musically it is moby at his best techno years but the woman moaning here can make it sound boring after some time. if not the woman's voice i wuold give it five stars. 3/5
7."new dawn faces" - amazing Joy division cover,Moby songs here and whole songs has havy guitar arrange.different than the rest of album but i just love that songs in both versions.Hard rocking track. 5/5
8."god moving over..." - great ambeint piece,one of the best from "everything is wrong" album,here is in shorter edited mix,100 times weaker than long album cut. you must hear it in 8 minutes version to feel it. 3/5
9."first cool hive" - relaxing track from "everything is wrong" - here in longer version.driven by great vocals and interesting bass riff.one of my favourites 5/5
10."Nash" - short spanish styled piece. 3/5
11."love theme" - guitar sounds like Mike Oldfield himself recorded it.the songs sounds sadly quite standard and too sweet,but hey,it's love theme. 3/5
12."grace" - sit down and relax to this 5 minutes minimalistic piece of music.simmilar to some "play" tracks. 4/5In conclusion it is a must-have for any moby fan. I got this album after "play","18" and "everything is wrong" and i like really this cd,it reminds of more earlier moby style represented by his mid-nineties records. Do not expect a masterpiece,it is a collection,but tracks like "go","new dawn fades","novio" or "james bond theme" are making it a really good buy"
