The very best of Apraxia circa 1999-2006. Includes the Depeche Mode cover of Strangelove in the Bonus tracks! 2007 versions of Glass and Stranger as well as never before heard demo versions. Includes Apraxia Theme song CyberChrist.
A must have for fans of indy electronica, industrial, new wave and synthpop. Trite Permission was given 5 stars by Side Line Magazine and became Album of the Month on Radio Fabrik in Salzburg Austria.

The most impressive songs are ..."Strangelove" (a Depeche Mode cover) and "Stranger". Sounds are nice and well chosen, the singer has got a good voice. ...it can be appreciated by people who prefer introspective electronic music instead of ebm. Quite good.

Originally Detroit, now Minneapolis ... steht zu lesen auf der MySpace Seite von Apraxia aka Siren313.
Damit ist schon einiges gesagt, wenn man Detroit als referentielle Quelle für die Dunkelheit von elektronischen Sounds nimmt und Mineapolis als Reiseziel ohne Prince-schen Verklärtheit betrachtet sondern eher als "Gotham City wie diese Urlaubsbilder zeigen.
Apraxia hat aber weit mehr Einflüsse, sie reichen von Kraftwerk, Gary Numan, über Front 242 auf die unvermeidlichen Depeche Mode. Obwohl hier allerortens bekannte Sounds verwendet werden und auch die Stimme vertraut klingt hebt sich Apraxia klar von reinem Epigonentum der Vorbilder ab, sondern liefert einen futuristischen Entwurf mit eindeutigen Reminiszenzen an die 80'er, und die verschiedenen Geburtsstätten elektronischer Popmusik. Leeds, Detroit, Berlin, New York --- [the Age of Chance, 1987] wird ausgedehnt auf die ganze Welt und ab in den Orbit.
Die Radiofabrik findet Apraxia - Trite Permission "Hörenswert" und sendet das Album am Freitag 22. Februar um 15:00 h (Wiederholung am 28. Februar, 00:00 h)
...The sound of Apraxia is primarily industrial, to my ears anyway, but still quite addictive to synthpop-tinged ears like mine. The group also wears their hearts on their sleeves, one of a number of groups throughout history with a strong political view at their core.... As you would expect, some of these views work their way into the lyrical message the band is espousing.
The Apraxia musical manifesto seems to include good strong bass, some strong programming and heavy beats. Subtle samples are present in all the original tracks, although the instrumental Completely Operational is a bit sample heavy (which is not to it’s detriment by the way). Glass is the one track that differs from the rest in that it attempts to move away from the strong rhythm of its brethren and tries something a little different. It’s not as beat heavy and is clearly the most diverse track here sound-wise.... The band clearly don’t subscribe to the traditional verse-chorus-verse structure of songwriting.... The songs are strong currently, no fears on that score...."
It's a mixture of BiGod20, Front 242 and early NIN, with a huge dose of synth-future-pop....
...The album has its potential hit.... Cyberchrist, with it's dry, short bass, noisy keys, raging vocals with complimentary female comments, it can all be considered a big plus of whole production. Another strong point of the record is MetroSexual (Stranger) a dynamic piece in contrast to melancholic mood of other songs on the album.
...Another official release, which is coming back to the roots, but still almost completely unnoticed. This release is a strong, rhythmic dose of electro-future-pop/ebm with classic electronic influences.." (translated from Polish)
