The actual song doesn’t start until 5 minutes into the track. The first five minutes of the rack sound like the band is warming up and trying to remember what music is.

The musicians apparently fell asleep and left the loops running at the 13-minute mark. Then at 14 min 15 sec they snore themselves awake and try to make something danceable. For a whole four minutes. After that the musicians nod to the producer, and he remixes the hell out of whatever sounds he finds sitting around his hard drive.

I wouldn’t object if the title of the track were: “Here are a bunch of four-minute-long songs, in a variety of styles.”

But the title is “Orbital HALO Drop Over Caracas.”

It has nothing to do with violence, or military organization, or pride in any group that has any chance of doing an orbital HALO assault on Caracas. Each of the separate songs stands or falls on its own merits, and some are decent, but they don’t come together to form any kind of story or image. The Ring of the Nibelungen, it isn’t.

All of the existing “wave” labels were not NICHE enough, so this is “NRXWave.”
