MOBY / Destroyed [2011]

After an album as amazing as Wait For Me it's a might bit disappointing to receive something as mediocre as Moby's 10th album Destroyed.
Not to say it's horrible but it's really only effective at certain times of the day and that being the wee hours of the morning. This is probably due to the recording process Moby endured while working on this album: at 2am isolated in hotel rooms while on tour in support of Wait For Me. There are a few very impressive bits here and there but clocking in at 71 minutes it would have benefited greatly with 20-25 minutes cut from it.
It's nice for writing or painting with but as a listening experience only it falls short mostly due to length. Oh well.
