"X Wave take a more martial approach to punk/rock, coming over like The Afflicted Man playing Spacemen 3’s “Losing Touch With My Mind” while making with massively thuggish/F/X drenched jams that give the nod to Japan’s Minor scene (Rotting Telepathies/Gasaneta et al) while they attempt to rip “Teenage Kicks” from the hands of The Undertones with nothing but a buncha wrong notes. Indeed, this feels closer to the original breakout rock/roll urge than any generic pretender, freaking with it in an intuitive high-energy style that has few parallels."  Volcanic Tongue
