Overview

Considering that Moby's music is most effective in small doses, perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that the compilation I Like to Score is a strong record. However, it does come as a surprise, since Moby's music usually sounds too insular for the kind of shifting, provocative atmospherics needed for effective film music. Here, on this collection of cinematic instrumental work, Moby demonstrates that he can capture the mood and feeling of a film while retaining his musical identity. Nothing here is particularly complex, and not all of it works -- his reworking of John Barry's "James Bond Theme" sounds like a major studio's idea of what the kids are listening to these days -- but by and large, I Like to Score is every bit as effective as Moby's official releases.
