Almost A Genius,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Everything Is Wrong (Audio CD)
Moby's 1995 contribution to the world is a mixed bag of delights and mystery. "Hymn" introduces one to this collection with an almost hyper piano melody on steroids. It certainly fits into the `hymn' or a `song of praise' category, but feels repetitious despite its pleasant feel. Then the listener is attacked with nasty punk grunge-like selections of songs like, "Feeling So Real", "All That I Need Is To Be Loved" and "What Love". To be fair, these are perfectly good punk rockers. "Let's Go Free" and "Bring Back My Happiness" are probably the most confusing techno-pop I've heard in a long time. They seem like experiments rather than songs. And just when you think all is starting to fall away, the listener is treated to mellow melodic trance-inducing mood songs like, "First Cool Jive", "Into The Blue and the truly original "God Moving Over The Face Of The Waters".
While Moby could never be fit into any one specific category other than "maybe" techno-pop, his creations are always wildly imaginative. This collection is a keeper simply for so many of its unique creations on so many different levels. Moby also always keeps you guessing, as in the instance of the title track, "Everything Is Wrong" which seems so very ordinary, plodding and slow. But then he finishes the album with one of his most beautiful songs ever. `When It's Cold I'd Like To Die" is an amazing, romantic piece of music with instrumentals that flow through you like calming waves and a vocal that rivals Annie Lennox. This song is alone worth the ownership of this album. Moby can be a genius when he wants to be.

You're very right. "When it's cold I'd like to die" is one of the most moving tracks ever released.
