Bitte Orca is one of the more purely enjoyable indie-rock records in an awfully long time; remarkable by any means, but even moreso considering the source.

User Reviews

A pretty solid adaptation of 2000s experimental rock, but it borrows too heavily from other bands of the time, namely Animal Collective. Yet, it's still an enjoyable experience overall.

The instruments Bitte Orca are inexorably precise and tightly orchestrated, demonstrating sheer technicality. However, the vocals are what make the album.

Best Track: Temecula Sunrise
Worst Track: Remade Horizon
Most Underrated Track: Cannibal Resource

The mix between the two voices, and the diversity is impeccable.
