CRITICAL DEAD ENDS for an album full of musical dead ends:
Perhaps what Moby does best is construct songs. And when I say construct, I mean construct. There is a definite sense of each part being absolutely separate from one another. On 'We Are All Made Of Stars', I can't help but hear each individual sound as if it has this obvious space that is equidistant from every other sound in the song. Each sound maintains its space, but somehow, sometimes it coalesces into something greater- this is when Moby actually succeed. However, it seems like this only happens once or twice per record, although listening to the song again right now here comes that ubiquitous uplifting Moby synth line which clashes completely with everything in the track...
