ORGY Vapor Transmisson

If Trent Reznor was as prolific as the cure, there would be no room for the Orgy's, let alone the Limp Bizkit's of the world. But as we need to fill the angsty Goth part of the record store with some pretty faces which we don't get from NIN either, we have this quintet sporting the typical LA virtues of trashy allure, brain-melting hooks, Anglo inspirations and billboard-size ambition. They pillage rock's New Wave and glam past, and mostly succeed being catchy enough to embarrass. Strip the studio synth-candy away from 'Eva,'and the band's melodic skills remain as sharp as its rhythmic precision. Whether jack-hammering the double-time wallop of "The Odyssey" or riding the death-disco slick of "Opticon," Orgy is one great record away from the throne. FYI, there's a whole genre of strange dark funky house music called darkwave, they even have parties!
