Moby Blasts Journalists Over Similar Albums Criticism
Dance star MOBY has slammed music journalists who criticise his music for sounding the same when acclaimed acts like THE WHITE STRIPES don't attract the same negative write-ups. Moby came under fire in 2002 when music writers ridiculed his 18 album for sounding like its predecessor PLAY. He says, "It did seem funny when 18 was released and a lot of journalists - especially in the UK - criticised it for being similar to Play. "These are the same journalists who love OASIS - every record they make sounds the same. "They love The White Stripes, and apart from the last White Stripes record, their records sound the same."
