After a string of successful house singles including "Feeling So Real" and "Every Time You Touch Me", both lifted from this album, you slap it in your CD player, listen to the first two songs and think, "Ah, I've got this pegged, this is a house act!" All of a sudden "All That I Need Is To Be Loved" explodes into the frenzied feedback of hardcore punk! Moby does not believe in musical boundaries, he listens to all sorts of music and has successfully produced an album which will please a wide spectrum of listeners whilst clinging in the main to its house roots. There are ambient passages such as "Hymn" and "God Moving Over The Face Of The Waters" and Celtic influences in "Into The Blue" and "When It's Cold I'd Like To Die". The accompanying free CD 'Underwater' is something akin to Tangerine Dream in their "Zeit" era, extremely sparse, meditational music not for your average clubber (maybe in the chill out room). Oh yeah, by the way, he's a Christian, check the liner notes.
