- One Quick Twist
- Asleep at the Wheel

- Wheel D.V.
This release takes quite a few listens to appreciate the creative musical
elements. There is a slightly funky feel through some of the songs mainly due
to the way the bass is played during songs. The song 'Asleep at the Wheel'
includes some Mexican-influenced guitar, some be-boppy synth effects and some
synth notes that make it sound like a cello in the background. Overall, the
music is a combination of some original samples and some good programming,
along with some heavy guitar elements on some of the songs. While I like the
musical capabilities and the programming in this release, the vocals come off
too much as the metal-type for my taste on a few of the songs. You're afraid
he's going to start belting out one of those annoying high-pitched screams at
any moment, thankfully he never does. The last two tracks, which are remixes,
show some promise with a restrained atmosphere in the music while managing to
keep the songs rhythmic and beat-oriented, but not overwhelmingly so.
