Orphan Boy, Passion, Pain & Loyalty Album Review


There's something a touch old skool about Orphan Boy, they sound very 90s at times which differentiates them from many of their contempories. For example, an Oasis styled, feedback intro brings this album to life - the perfect foundation for any rock n roll band intent on blowing the roof off with a certain boyish swagger. While Letters for Annie has just that in abundance, a haze of guitars moaning and wailing their way into your consciousness.

Popsong is a different kettle of fish all together, the Oasis swagger is out the window and in its place is a sensitive and brooding track that's closer to James than the Gallagher's.
