Moby fans can be divided into two camps: the masses who discovered him with last year's brilliant Play, and the dedicated ravers who idolized this techno kingpin as far back as his 1991 club hit "Go." For the newcomers, Moby's former label Elektra has compiled 16 tracks recorded from 1993 to 1998 as an introduction to the artist. Though it doesn't completely chronicle Moby's wild mood swings, Mobysongs does showcase his uncanny knack for reinventing himself -- whether he's appropriating tribal drums on "Alone," combining a sample of a rain shower with sparse piano on "The Rain Falls and the Sky Shudders," or busting out high-energy grooves with a dance track like "Feeling So Real." Several standouts also prove why Moby quickly set himself apart in clubland -- he brought a more organic feel to electronic music with soulful vocal parts ("First Cool Hive" and "Move"), inventive samples (the Twin Peaks theme wildly reinterpreted in "Go"), and funky/bluesy guitars ("I Like to Score"). Fans of Moby's ubiquitous party anthem "Bodyrock" may not appreciate the subtle, ambient atmospherics of the tracks featured here, but Mobysongs is a handy reminder of how Moby's genius can take many forms.
