For being Atrox's most accessible album, Orgasm is still pretty damn inaccessible. Listening to Monika sing is like being afflicted with A.D.D. and going through mood swings every 30 seconds, which actually comes across as a mostly tolerable and oddly enjoyable experience. Her voice twists and turns with the direction of the music, or a more accurate statement might be that the music flows around the erratic fluidity of her voice. She sings, shrieks, squeals, squeaks, wails, and hits all kinds of highs, lows, mids, lefts, and rights. She can be scary, soothing, tongue-in-cheek, dramatic, bipolar, melodic, chaotic… and sometimes all at once. Admittedly, Monika's vocal acrobatics are not quite as off the wall here as they are on albums like Contentum or Terrestrials, but they are sufficient to remove any doubts regarding her artistic state of mind.
