"It's all as subtle as a flurry of punches in the face, but utterly uplifting." — Mojo, December 2016
Moby and the Void Pacific Choir's debut album, These Systems Are Failing is a passionate protest against the status quo. Fully energized and tightly concentrated, the producer's first studio album in three years is a concise and infrequently relenting set of nine songs that rail against those who have caused emotional and planetary harm, writes AllMusic.
The video for the lead single, "Are You Lost in the World Like Me?" is is "about our increasing dependence on technology and about human interaction today, or a certain lack of it," Moby says. "It focuses on the way tech is changing us - how we have become desensitized."
Indeed These Systems Are Failing has as its central premise that mankind largely has become a victim of our own successes and unrestrained impulses. "Our ancestors died of rotten teeth and disease — our ancestors pushed back and they won," Moby intones, in a video manifesto. "BUT WE KEPT GOING. We kept eating as if we were about to starve, we kept fighting even though the old enemies were gone ... we built great cities, great industries, great systems. These systems were supposed to feed us, but instead they've killed the animals, the land and us. These systems were supposed to protect us, but instead they've poisoned our air and our water.
"These systems were supposed to serve us, but instead they're killing us."
