After
by Moby

Album: Destroyed (2011)
  • Moby sings here (with the help of a vocoder) about messed-up relationships that have stopped working. He said: "What I really wanted to do with this song is have a middle section that goes on way too long and I hope I have achieved that. The song starts quiet and strange and then gets propulsive and energetic. And then about half way through the song it sort of stops for about a minute and a half and then it all comes back in. Whether anyone will notice this or care I don't know."
  • Flatbush, Brooklyn native Inyang Bassey supplies the backing vocals. She was two years into a day job producing concerts for the renowned Carnegie Hall when Moby invited her to tour with him.

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
