Apraxia - The Grid
New Wave, Synthpop I was not to impressed by the album 'Trite Permission', but Apraxia is back and give it another go with the album 'The Grid'. Are sparks flying?

The albums open up with the musically intense "Stop!", I think the voice is a bit low on this one and I would really like to hear the lyrics more. Luckily this get better throughout the album. The second track "Delicious Vixen" is actually pretty good and catchy even though I'm not too keen on the slower parts. The third track is my favourite and it's called "DNA Nanobots". It's melancholic and the lyrics are really smart.

Unfortunately, just like on the other album, things go haywire after a couple of tracks. With the fourth track "Fight" some basic guitar sounds are implemented and it simply is not working. We are also presented with a cover of Stooges old tune "I wanna be your dog", but this version simply cannot live up to the feeling of the original.

After this, the album is unable to get back on its feet again with one exception. The seventh track "Rabbits" is a good one and is up with "DNA Nanobots" and fighting for the first place. Still, the album is far from a favourite despite a few good tracks.
