Electro-savant Moby has spent two decades waking people up: from his hi-NRG techno beginnings through 1999's party starter Play up to 2008's funky, underrated Last Night. Wait for Me, however, seems primarily designed to put people to sleep. Reportedly inspired by oddball director David Lynch and his passion for Transcendental Meditation, the album collects 16 droopy, drowsy, mostly instrumental tracks of gauzy piano and somnambulant
 murmurings, only a very few of which (the mournful title track, the ominously lovely "Slow Light") exhibit a pulse. Our humble request for next time: more disco, less nap. C–
