Go: The Very Best of Moby is not the career-spanning compilation implied by its title. Instead, it's based around 1999's Play, 2002's 18, and 2005's Hotel, and it adds a handful of tracks in an attempt to entice fans who couldn't otherwise justify the purchase of a disc that relies on very recent and readily available material. (Hotel had only been out a year and a half when Go was released.) With the exception of Everything Is Wrong's ambient epic "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters," Anders Trentemoller's fresh mix of "Go," and a rough-sounding live version of "Feeling So Real," nothing here references Moby's output prior to Play.
A collection of 20 CD, which includes all the studio albums by English rock band Blur at the moment, also 2 compilations, 1 live and 8 singles.
Like so much of Moby's earliest work, this isn't so much an album as a compilation via his original label, Instinct. Ambient influences in techno were all the rage in 1993 in terms of press and coverage (though jungle would swiftly eclipse both it and the progressive house genre), so it's no surprise Instinct wanted some of that action, right down to the says-it-all title. Motivations aside, Ambient is an enjoyable collection of experiments; if Aphex Twin's monumental Selected Ambient Works releases eclipse it in terms of both quality and sheer inventiveness, Moby's own efforts in the field are often quite pleasing. Those familiar with such later efforts as "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters" and "The Rain Falls and rhe Sky Shudders" can find their partial roots here, though the compositions are generally more formal and less-immediately noteworthy than what came next.
Collection includes: 'Solid Pleasure' (1980); 'Claro Que Si' (1981); 'You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess' (1983); 'Stella' (1985); '1980–1985 The New Mix In One Go' (1986); 'One Second' (1987); 'Flag' (1988); 'Baby' (1991).
