The End of Civilization

According to the New York Times, Moby's new Album "Hotel" signals the end of civilization. Apparently the fact that Moby's "Play" achieved synergy by having it's songs licensed to commercials, and the fact that this reviewer didn't like it very much, makes some larger point about music as commodity which somehow signals the end of history.

Yeah, it's kind of confusing to me too.

But then I liked "Play." I liked "18" as well. Moby is not as good as, say, the Chemical Brothers or Underworld, and he is kind of on a high horse some of the time, but he's ok.
