Album of the Day
Everything is Wrong
Moby had already released a pair of independent albums when EVERYTHING IS WRONG established him as one of the fastest rising stars in music. He described the 1995 Elektra collection as “a record that almost served as a lifeboat for the songs I cared the most about … because I was in love with all of these genres and I felt like this may be my only chance to make a record.” That eclecticism can be heard across these 13 tracks, from upbeat dance numbers (“Feeling So Real”) to aggressive industrial-tinged rock (“All That I Need Is to Be Loved”) to ambient work (“First Cool Hive”) and haunting balladry (“When It's Cold I'd Like To Die,” one of two songs featuring Hugo Largo vocalist Mimi Goese). An ardent animal rights activist, Moby titled this album to reflect his frustration with the state of the world, but EVERYTHING IS WRONG will sound right to any techno fan.
