The Knife does science

Alright guys. Get ready for your minds to be completely blown:
As some of you may already know, The Knife and Mt. Sims were commissioned over a year ago by some Danes to write an opera about Charles Darwin.

About a week ago, it seemed like a couple versions of the soundtrack/album were surfacing, but these were all bunk (not surprising since their studio version isn't slated to arrive until March). Talk about disappointment. However, I have an 11-minute taste tester for you guys.

I love The Knife dearly and sincerely, but i've also seen a lot of operas, so I was a little skeptical about how this beast would turn out. However, I feel pretty confident saying... this is rad.
