Moby – Hotel: Ambient

Published on 7 February 2019 by

      Andy Kellman: ‘Ten thousand early CD copies of Moby’s 2005 album Hotel were packaged with a bonus disc, Hotel: Ambient — an assemblage of restrained, atmospheric, and predominantly beatless tracks. Moby obtained the rights to that extra set and, in late 2014, wisely gave it a separate release as a digital download with three bonus tracks. A triple-vinyl edition was released a few months after that. The material, heavily inspired by Brian Eno’s early ambient releases — certain parts of Music for Airports and On Land, for instance — is among the producer’s best and most nuanced work. It evokes a mix of comfort and slight alienation, and is pleasurable whether placed in the background or heard through total immersion. The bonus cuts, including the gently swarming “May 4 Two” and a 16-minute version of the weightless and elegiac “Live Forever” are enhancements rather than completist lures.’
