Right now, this is the best album of the year. Almost every tune is crafted precisely and beautifully. Excellent musicians, interesting lyrics, and my girlfriend likes this. Any album my girlfriend likes is usually the next internet indie smash hit.
a wonderful album that's melodic and poppy, but at the same time is something totally different. from the three part harmonies, to the classical guitar licks, to thte power pipes from all four singers, to the unorthodoxly catchy and memorable songs, Bitte Orca stands as my absolute favorite record of 2009.
