    Many albums are constructed around a theme. Consequently, they can cater towards a certain group of people, connecting strangers together by linking a shared emotion or experience that is expressed via a compiled list of tracks. Moby's most recent album, Destroyed, takes this approach in a somewhat unique manner, as it is dedicated to all of the insomniacs out there. Though a seemingly obscure inspiration, if you have ever had trouble sleeping, you're aware that the feeling can be rather consuming and entrancing, as the lack of activity around you and resulting solitude warps the mind for a momentary reality shift and creates a world in which you are the only inhabitant. The building blocks of Destroyed were created in such a state. To capture this hidden world of nocturnal beings, Moby put together a multi-media experience in the form of a website that streamed the album along with photos of his late night observances, accessed by a map of his touring locations and corresponding images. The tracks themselves actually seem to encompass more than one would expect, considering the late night inspiration, but this does not cause too much of a hindering impact on the inescapable beauty that exists within the sounds of Destroyed.
