Moby - Sunday (The Day Before My Birthday)

  • Share
  • I have to say I’ve struggled with much of Moby’s output since he went all blues on us, but I’ve remained an interested consumer of his B-sides and alternative mixes, which make ‘Sunday’ an interesting proposition. Whereas CD1 contains original Bs, CD2 goes on the remix tip. The title track itself is standard Moby fare, a breathy vocal sample from Sylvia Robinson, backed by a slightly tinny piano. Although the hook is a good one, it reeks more of album filler than obvious single. Better news on the remixes though – Dave Hedger’s West London Deep Club mix is coolness personified, whilst Boris Dlugosch throws a few tricks into his interpretation. Best track here is Ferry Corsten’s trance roof-raiser ‘In My Heart’, every bit as good as 1999’s ‘Why Does My Heart’ remix. The two B-sides are pleasingly soothing, with ‘ISS’ harking back to the early ‘Ambient’ album – not a bad thing.
