  1. Vapor Transmissions is a hymnal for brave new citizens who have adopted The Matrix as a religion while using artifice as deception for their sinister subtexts. [#146, p.81]
  2. With their second album Vapor Transmission, they return to deliver another set of electronic-laden rockers, but this time out they do so with slicker production and improved songwriting.
  3. This is gloriously trashy glam-rock with an updated cybernetic edge.

    They're an American band that sound like British Francophiles, right down to the pip-pip accent in leader Jay Gordon's Gary Numan pout. [12/2000, p.223]
  5. Marilyn Manson-isms still haunt singer Jay Gordon, but this time he binds his secondhand poetics to a forward-looking glam too catchy to be denied.
  6. 60
    But just as a couple of cool originals on its debut distinguished Orgy from the Antichrist Superstar cover bands current working the bar circuit, if only slightly, so too do a clutch of strong tunes on this, its second album.
  7. Singer Jay Gordon spends much of the record predictably preening his way through third-hand Bowie and third-rate Simon LeBon impressions while the band labour on a set of half-baked electro-metal...

    I LOVE THIS CD!!!!!!!!!! Orgy is probably the best group ever!!!!!!! Candyass is still a great cd but Vapor Transmissions is better. I kinda agree with Ashley R, Jay Gordon does NOT sound like Marilyn Manson, the only song where he kinda sounds like Marilyn Manson is Dizzy (which is on Candyass). I love Orgy. I just wish Bobby didnt leave and they would come out with another CD. Expand

    This is a great CD. Orgy shows that they matured during the 2 years they took to make this record. Candyass is a bit more raw, while Vapor Transmission maintains that while sounding a lot more electronic. Every track is good, you can listen to the whole cd without skipping any tracks. Outstanding tracks are "Fiction(Dreams in Digital)", "Eva", "Eyes Radio-Lies", and "Re-Creation". Expand

    Although orgy isnt a technically great band, and they do remind me of the worst of marilyn manson and static x group of bands, they more than make that up with one of the greatest science fiction themed atmospheres ever. definitely one of the greatest numetal albums ever. Expand
