I don’t get these reviews.
The name of the album is Hotel : Ambient. It’s clearly ambient music. I don’t know what’s so hard to understand about this.
A re-release of a hidden Moby gem
In 2005, Moby released Hotel, a quieter follow-up to his more upbeat Play and 18 albums. While Hotel had some amazing tracks, including Raining Again and a subdued cover of New Order’s Temptation, what was interesting about early releases of the CD is that it came with a bonus CD, titled Hotel Ambient.
Several years ago, Moby was asked where to get a copy of Hotel Ambient, and commented in an interview that he realized he didn’t even have a copy of his own. (Crazy, right?) So he set about remaking Hotel Ambient from scratch.
This album is quite different from Play and 18, with their radio-friendly tunes like South Side and We Are All Made of Stars. In fact, I don’t think there’s a single…
