Origin: Orphan is even more extraordinary; a howling, mechanistic piece of post-rock in the vein of Godspeed You Black Emperor!


Yeah another 100. Yeah i'm grading this on a letter scale. And yes, this totally earns it. Their opus. A culmination of everything they did before it and a little hint of what's to come in the almost-as-incredible AGE. If yr gay get it. If yr not, eh, you may still like it?
