Porcelain by Moby
I kind of forgot how much I love this album. I never owned it when it was first released but my older brother did and I remember frequently hearing it around the turn of the millenium, so each song is etched in to my memory even though I was unaware who created the songs I was hearing.
While growing up my music taste was always semi-influenced by the people around me. I say “semi-influenced” because when me and my friends used to skateboard, only music that could be broadly labeled “rock” was able to be played, but I used to stray away and listen to Hip-Hop on my own, as a kind of, fuck you guy’s I’m sick of skating to Slipknot and AC/DC, or whatever band it was that I’ve now grown to despise.
Moby was one of those guys who always intrigued me, but I was put off from listening to his music because of the people around me. So I guess I’d grown up with this image that Moby made some kind of crappy techno that I’d hate, I honestly don’t know how I got it in my head. Maybe it was because I listened to Eminem, and he used to hate Moby??
For whatever reason, I didn’t ever listen to him, but recently I’ve been exploring music that I was aware I had brushed aside while growing up and I have to say, I’m so glad I went back and re-discovered a gem that brings backs so many childhood memories, thanks to my brother.
