After several albums of introspective, rustic electronica melancholy, Moby returns to the dance floor in nearly full force with the Void Pacific Choir. Earlier they released the rocking, overdrive punk of The Lights Clear in My Eyes. Now there’s the dance floor anthem, “Almost Loved.” There’s no info, only this quote: “Normally when people refer to a void, it’s a big, dark, scary, thing – the dark, malicious, Nietzschean void, where if you stare too long into the it, it stares back into you. But we like the paradox of a pacific, peaceful void – a benign emptiness.” It’s interesting he’d come up with that concept to match some of his most aggressive music in years. But that’s what I love about Moby. He never meets an expectation he didn’t agree too. There is a path he sees and he follows it. Note that “Almost Loved” shares a bit of the sequencer energy of his collaboration with Jean-Michel Jarre from Electronica 1: The Time Machine. Here’s “Almost Loved” below.
