All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
On Last Night, Moby is as blissfully out of touch with modern club music as he is current. As he explains of course in the album's liner notes, he has been in the thick of New York City club culture since the early '80s, and he takes the opportunity here to pay tribute to a number of dance music strains that have fallen in and out of fashion -- in a couple cases, they've recently fallen back into fashion -- including some angles he hasn't taken in well over a decade. The sturdiest, most appealing tracks tend to be where Moby breaks out with some highly energized combination of rollicking pianos, stabbing keyboards, and random divas, mixing and matching rave, Hi-NRG, and ...

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
On Last Night, Moby is as blissfully out of touch with modern club music as he is current. As he explains of course in the album's liner notes, he has been in the thick of New York City club culture since the early '80s, and he takes the opportunity here to pay tribute to a number of dance music strains that have fallen in and out of fashion -- in a couple cases, they've recently fallen back into fashion -- including some angles he hasn't taken in well over a decade. The sturdiest, most appealing tracks tend to be where Moby breaks out with some highly energized combination of rollicking pianos, stabbing keyboards, and random divas, mixing and matching rave, Hi-NRG, and disco: "Everyday It's 1989," "Stars," and "Disco Lies" featuring a vocalist who is nearly a dead ringer for a young Taylor Dayne would've had no place on any of the last five Moby albums. What is long maligned and what is trendy sometimes occurs simultaneously, as on "I Love to Move in Here" featuring Grandmaster Caz, a mid-tempo house track that can be sub-categorized as both hip-house inciting wicked flashbacks for most haters of either component and Balearic as it causes that loosey-goosey, anesthetized-but-still-beaming sensation, prevalent in several of the hippest dance tracks released during 2007 and 2008. The poorly timed, not-so-appealing moments -- "257.zero," "Alice" -- with their distant transmission spoken bits and droning raps, might sound in step whenever the Soul Jazz label gets around to releasing rarity compilations with contents resembling Astralwerks' late-'90s compilations for MTV's Amp program. The disc's latter 20 minutes, containing contemplative, string-laden tracks, would be as suited for the Pure Moods series i.e., beside Yanni, Dave Koz as past tracks "Porcelain" and "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters." A good number of Moby fans who began to follow the producer's moves well before Play will be inclined to think of Last Night as the best Moby album since Everything Is Wrong. That the album involves several unself-conscious, rush-inducing tracks rather than the once-expected token track or two is enough for that opinion to have validity. Ditto the sensible and drastic reduction of Moby's own vocals.
Rolling Stone - Caryn Ganz
A concept album about an all-night bender, Last Night solidifies Moby's link in the chain that binds DJ pioneers like Todd Terry to slinky futurists like Justice.
The Guardian
Moby's best album since the 10m-selling Play.

    Moby-us Strip

    Other reviews of this latest Moby album cite its 80s influences as a major component, and they're right. It's house, with definite tendencies -- unabashed ones, at that -- to reference the 80s with its beats and soaring female vocals. The vocals are a Moby constant, and they're just as good here as they have been on previous tracks. This is a fun album. Not necessarily essential listening, but fun nonetheless.
