      Its good but he has done better

      I was originally excited when this album was first out, but after I listened to it I was actually a bit disappointed as although he had once again developed his music another step i am not sure if it sounded very moby or not anymore, it sounded a little bit more generic or thrown together.

      Don't get me wrong I do love moby but this one fell away from tradition a bit. I was not even particularly happy with the themes for his music videos for this album also they were a bit disappointing for me.

      He does specify that it was about people fearing alien objects in supposedly sterilized conditions and sex in hotel rooms, how human beings can spend most of their lives in hotel rooms and although this describes human nature, I maybe was not prepared for him to go that far down that road with the song I like it, and the depression of the song slipping away.

      This album was maybe more focused on some of mobys journal entries rather than his typical themes.

      The songs also lacked length compared to typical moby tracks for instance the majority of tracks in this album were generally 4 minutes or less where as in everything is wrong he also had tracks around 5-8 minutes long as well as the shorter tracks which emphasized his spontaneity as an artist. In this album everything seemed very well kept and in line and equal.

      Though the explanation on the inside cover of this CD is pretty interesting, the second hotel CD is more interesting or at least in my opinion.

      The tracks are as follows

      1. Hotel intro
      2.Raining again
      3.Beautiful
      4.Lift me up
      5.Where you end
      6.Temptation
      7.Spiders
      8.Dream about me
      9.Very
      10.I like it
      11.Love should
      12.Slipping away
      13.Forever
      14.Homeward angel
      15.35 minutes.
