Episode 29 - Animal Rights by Moby
Mark and Weaver were fairly sure that Chris was trolling with this selection, but they couldn't be sure until they gave Moby's wacky, idiosyncratic fifth album 'Animal Rights' a spin. Results are...varied.
To be sure, this is not like any other Moby album. There are guitars and shit. There's screaming. There's drums. It's like digital hardcore meets Nine Inch Nails with the occasional spattering of Moby's usual ambient self. This is a record that shouldn't exist. An oddity. A weird mole on the career of a guy is, by all accounts, a very nice man.
Chris loved it. Mark and Weaver weren't convinced. Chris gives us some deep insight's into the mans catalogue and tries to make a case for this recording going into the discography on Moby's nice guy credentials alone.
Regardless of whether or not you think this deserves a place in our discography, we all agree on one thing - you need to listen to this record. Because it's fascinating.
