A sort of treatise on the state of industrial rock, Onara’s Out of Print might be one of the most manic CDs ever recorded. Bad alt-rock songs like “Luv N’ Caress” and “Alyssa Virus” magically fade into less--bad songs like “Never Ask What You Don’t Want to Know,” but then grow into very bad songs like “Ringmaster,” “Sunset” and “Ugly Truth,” all while sharing little musical synchronicity. Still, the cover model is moderately hot, and one can sort of imagine “Fanatic Addict” playing as a lap-dance anthem at a local strip club someday.

The bottom line:**
