Moby Releases First Single From ‘Destroyed’

It’s easy to still root for Moby, but tough to expect to be surprised by him anymore.  “The Day” is the first single on Moby’s new album, Destroyed, out May 17th, and it’s an unbelievable bore.  If you want, you can listen here anyway.

The production, a homage to the Berlin Trilogy, has an emotionless gloss over it which gets further obscured by Moby’s flat vocal delivery.  Overall, the track is bogged down by sheer monotony; there’s no tonal shift, no significant tempo change, and nothing to hold on to.    Maybe he should have sang it in French.  No, that’s worse.
