You can certainly tell that Waiting For God is has headed into new musical territory when the first track off "Desipramine" is three minutes of rhythmically constructed noise. With the recent success of such rhythmic noise acts such as Dive, Numb, P*A*L, and Noisex it seems that everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. As a result this has allowed artists like Waiting For God to push the envelope of their own music by incorporating noise concepts into their already unique pseudo-Darkwave style ultimately yielding another new hybrid sound. Causticity seems to be the musical element of predominance throughout the album, albeit is a variety of different forms. Most of the tracks on "Desipramine" are very stripped down with only minimal string arrangements coating a variety of minimalistic percussion elements all run through analog filters to give them a nice low-tech feel. The rest of the material remains well within the musical borders exhibited on the band's debut release "Quarter Inch Thick". In the end, it makes for a very well balanced album without creating a sharp contrast in musical styles thereby aligning Waiting For God in a strategic position for success.
