AllMusic Review by

Go: The Very Best of Moby is not the career-spanning compilation implied by its title. Instead, it's based around 1999's Play, 2002's 18, and 2005's Hotel, and it adds a handful of tracks in an attempt to entice fans who couldn't otherwise justify the purchase of a disc that relies on very recent and readily available material. (Hotel had only been out a year and a half when Go was released.) With the exception of Everything Is Wrong's ambient epic "God Moving Over the Face of the Waters," Anders Trentemøller's fresh mix of "Go," and a rough-sounding live version of "Feeling So Real," nothing here references Moby's output prior to Play. The one new track, "New York, New York," is a fun Giorgio Moroder-inspired throwaway featuring Debbie Harry. A bonus disc compiles 11 remixes, most of which will be mere curiosities to the average person with an interest in the first disc.
