January 2018 Vinyl Me, Please Review
The January shipment features a pressing of Moby’s Play.
Each delivery comes with a cocktail mix to accompany the music and a foreword from the Vinyl Me, Please team.
It’s also accompanied by an LP-size piece of artwork.
Moby – Play
Moby isn’t an artist that I really listen to or keep up on – so I was really interested to find out how I’d feel upon giving Play a spin for the first time – and hearing a few popular songs again for the first time in quite a while.
The exclusive pressing comes with two pieces of art from the Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? and Natural Blues singles.
Each is a glossy LP-sized print.
Play has quite the tracklist, with a number of hits on each side.
The record sleeve and the centerpiece of the record itself come together in one Moby picture.
Just a lot of little pieces of artwork to take in!
I really enjoyed the album – it was my first time listening to lay in its entirety – and, surprisingly, even the hits that I wasn’t really into at the time of release were really good on this spin nearly 20 years later! Listening to South Side really brought me back!
Verdict: I love that Vinyl Me, Please mixes it up with current, recent past, and classic albums – I like revisiting albums that I love(d) or that I may have dismissed at the time. On top of that, the exclusive pressings are typically beautiful as a piece of standalone art! This month was the perfect example – and I ended up loving it.
To Wrap Up:
