AllMusic Review by

Essentially a double-disc best-of compilation, Wave:CD assembles tracks culled from the two most recent albums in the Wave Function series and tracks from DMX Krew's first three LPs. It also adds vocals to some tunes previously only available as instrumentals. The second disc is a veritable delight for fans of DMX's earlier work, as it gathers greatest hits of DMX's productions on Rephlex, covering every phase of his ever evolving career from the Giorgio Moroder-inspired "17 Ways to Break My Heart" to the electro-heavy "Denki No Merodi" and back again. The only glaring omission preventing this from being a definitive look at Ed Upton's career would be "I Can't Forget" from the U.S. Spectral Sound imprint. Omissions aside, this is probably the best starting point to begin exploring his long and winding catalog, and is probably the most thorough survey of his finest moments ever committed to CD.
