Trivia Crack Answer: Moby
About the albums Play and 18
The albums Play and 18 were released by Moby. Moby, born Richard Melville Hall, is a musician and DJ. Moby typically makes electronic dance music. Play, released in 1999, was Moby’s first international hit. His next and sixth album, 18, sold over four million copies. Moby’s stage name was a childhood nickname. His parents say that the family is related to Herman Melville, hence the middle name of Melville and the nickname Moby, after the novel Moby Dick. Although Moby did not enjoy great commercial success until his fifth album, Play, he was receiving positive critical reviews as early as his first album, Everything is Wrong. Spin magazine even called Everything is Wrong their album of the year. A shift of interest toward electronic music would be instrumental in making Play and 18 hits. Moby is also a photographer and writes essays often included in his album liners. He is famously a vegan and works for many charities. He once donated over $75,000 to charities aiding those who are victims of domestic violence after California cut its funding for their domestic violence program. Moby is still writing music to this day, releasing his latest album in 2013. Innocents is his eleventh album.
