Welcome To Moby Hotel - A Five Star Stay
The Wasp | Australia | 05/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Over the years Richard Melville Hall has copped a lot of flack from various music circles. To rave aficionados he's the bastard child who betrayed his roots by disputing the genre's relevance. To dance purists he's the sell-out who chased the mighty dollar via multiple advertising deals. To lovers of Deep South Negro spirituals he's the man who whored Alan Lomax field recordings for hits such as Honey, Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? and Run On. And to Eminem, he's eternally the "36-year-old boy in fag clothing".
It's true that he takes himself to seriously and has confusingly mixed morals when it comes to politics, drug use and animal activism, but Moby's 20 years of music making ensures his live shows are a blast. From early dance party successes such as the Twin Peaks-sampling Go to his latest David Bowie-aping single Spiders, on the new DVD Live - Hotel Tour 2005 Moby takes his audience through a diverse range of music styles.
Covering seminal punk, rock and dance tunes such as That's When I Reach For My Revolver, Walk On The Wild Side and Temptation is a risky proposition, but apart from Moby's quivering vocal style the overall package is solid. Moby's female vocalist Laura Dawn makes her mark on hits Find My Baby, Dream About Me and Feeling So Real, with her pint-sized New York boss doing the rock star guitarist thing on We Are All Made Of Stars, Bodyrock and Lift Me Up.
As with previous Moby DVDs, value for money comes via a host of extras, this time including Hotel videos (including the bizarre costume animal wife-swapping debauchery of Beautiful), bonus live tracks, home movies and a remix CD of Moby's latest tracks featuring hot producers Steve Angello, Tiga and Mylo.
Hotel might have been pretty vacant, but Live is a five star stay."

"more of the great stuff following from the previous dvd. the most outstanding track for me was the live rendition of "Next to the E". note that in my PAL version, there is a music/video sync glitch in PCM stereo 2.0 in the song "Feeling so real". however dolby digital is flawless. it's a must buy if you are a moby fan, or even slightly interested in his music!"
SOOO Many Extra's Thank you Moby

"I really liked this DVD. Chock full of extra's including a CD of 13 re-mixed songs (which is awesome,) 5 music videos, live tracks, 2 `little' movies and a fantastic live performance. If you're a Moby fan then this is a must have and good value for money.
The concert has been filmed in Belgium and Moby takes his European audience along for a great ride through all his many hits. The crowd shots make this concert resemble a rave, with lots of hot, sweaty bodies jumping up and down. It made me want to be there.
With 24 songs in total the selection here is excellent. My favourite tracks would have to be the brilliant renditions of Next To E and David Bowie's Spiders. Laura Dawn is amazing on back up vocals and shines on tracks such as Dream about me, Feeling So Bad and Find My Baby where Moby takes a back seat. Throughout the concert Moby talks to his audience; apologizing for George Bush and peppering them with little anecdotes "Thank you, thank you." The re-mixed CD is fantastic and I also enjoyed his music videos especially the weird animal costumed Beautiful.
I did find the menus a little hard to follow but other than that I can highly recommend this DVD, with so many extras you can't go wrong.
Songs included are; Find my baby, Raining again, Natural blues, Spiders, Where you end, In my heart, Go, That's when I reach for my revolver, Temptation, Beautiful, Very, Next is the e, Porcelain, Dream about me, Why does my heart feel so bad? We are all made of stars, Slipping away, Honey, Bodyrock, Lift me up, Walk on the wild side, Fur Elise and Feeling so bad.
Remixed CD includes different and multiple versions of; Lift me up, Raining again, Beautiful, Slipping away and Where you end (13 in total)

"Moby Rocks! For anyone who is a fan of Moby, this is a must have! The music is fantastic and all of his best songs are played at this concert. I found the lighting was a little dark at times but hey, it's a live concert! The menu of the dvd was a little hard to follow but it was artistic. Play the dvd on a big tv with a surround sound and it's almost like being at the concert!"
