Orphans & Vandals: I Am Alive and You Are Dead

And there it is, that feeling of discovery, of genius borne, genius devouring the fuse of its namelessness. Music has its geniuses, of course, most of whom are dead or lost it eons ago. I can't recall being alive for an explosion like Al Joshua, the creative force behind Orphans & Vandals. Maybe it's his urgency, his honesty, his sexuality . . . whatever his stuffing is made of, the musical result is daggers scalding, impaling you with the gloriously ugly series of events that is Life. It's chaotic, offensive, feverish, addictive. It's pretentious. It's affected. That's the only way it could be so blisteringly real.

5/5 - Easily one of the best albums of the year so far.
