"I was literally floored by this DVD. I was expecting mostly a video collection with some extras, but imagine my surprise when the 'extras' such as the megamix of remixes end up making this one of my favorite music DVDs ever. The videos themselves are nice, with a number of them not before seen in the US (the European ones look like they were made on a smaller budget, but are still good fun to watch). Having the videos for songs like Honey and the original "audition" Bodyrock treatment are a blast. The live songs are amazingly well produced, and it's fun to see Moby with full backup band in tow. He even throws in 'go' and 'new dawn fades' from older releases. The video and sound quality for these segments is really topnotch.But my favorite part of the DVD, by far, is the megamix of the various 'play' remixes, with new tripped-out visuals to accompany the songs. It's actually quite engrossing. Some of the visuals are your standard G-Force trippy screensaver type deals, but others are wildly imaginative and quite arresting. The remixes are also great in their own right, giving the original songs wildly different interpretations. The 20-minute camcorder bit in Moby's studio is fun, but not exactly arresting.This DVD instantly jumps into the company of the Criterion Beastie Boys collection and the 'Everything, Everything' DVD from underworld. The megamix part of the disc alone would justify the purchase price."

"The videos and music are one thing. The sound alone is another. The "Give an Idiot a Video Camera" is in a class all it's own. A definite must for any Moby fan.First off, the videos: AWESOME!!! The audio on this DVD is a perfect example of why DVD was created in the first place. The best of Moby's Play is included, amongst them: "Honey"( personal favorite), "Natural Blues"(beautiful song), "Bodyrock"(both versions hilarious), and "Porcelain"(I prefer the Eye-Version). One thing that baffled me was why "Southside" wasn't included."Give an Idiot a Video Camera": A hilarious "documentary" created by Moby, which is a definite acquired taste. It runs 20 minutes, and kind of gave me the feel of a Guy Ritchie-type thing. Some of the funny things include Moby "interviewing himself"(Moby in a costume, asking questions, intercutting previously taped answers from himself from past intwerviews), a spoof of his house on "MTV Cribs", and the funniest, he trying to find a festival in France, resulting in calling it a Piece of Shi... numerous times.Rounding it out is a 90 minute megamix of his videos. A great pick for any Moby fan, I'm thrilled I picked it up."
Moby is as good an actor as he is a musician

"I had been toying with buying this for three months, finally I broke down and bought it. Wow, why did I wait so long. I think that DVD is the way to buy music now. This album was incredible to begin with, but now being able to listen to it in 5.1 audio, wow. The video's are excellent. The remixed songs are fantastic, and the clublike videos that play on top of the remixs are pretty cool...that 20 minute "Give an idiot a camcorder" is hilarious. Moby is too cool for words."

Who cares about Southside?!?

"Quit complaining about Southside not being on here! The song was awesome BEFORE he decided to use somebody who was already mainstream just to get played on MTV. I like Gwen and all, but I just thought that was just a ... attempt to get more people listening to Moby. I'm glad they left it out, it doesn't feel like Moby even really made it, and that's what this DVD is all about, just Moby. I love the videos on there, some of which were released in US, and the others I am guessing either were made for the DVD or had been released in Europe. The "Give An Idiot A Camcorder" was so funny, I love the fish puppet, nice touch Moby :) The only part I didn't care for was the rave mix, just because I'm not too big into rave music like that. But I still gave this DVD 5 stars, because it's not like I HAVE to watch that part, and it still delievers everything else I could ask for."
