4 stars Thirteen of Everything (intristing name) is a relativly young progressive rock band from USA formed in late 1998 with only one album in their pockets so far, released at Musea records in 2005 named Welcome humans. I was very pleased what I heared here on this first offer of this texan band. Taken the influences from Genesis (Trick of the tail and Wind and wuthering era), Thirteen of everything manage to create a very solid and pleasent symphonic prog album, filled with excellent keyboards arrangements and some great guitar lines. The music is complex, beautifull arranged with some very memorable parts. The album is up tempo with little moments of respiro like Semprino, an acustic piece with nice keyboards in background . The voice is very good for this kind of music, he did a great job, nice passages from light voclas to more in vein just to come with the atmosphere of the piece, good voice. The main man of the band , is to me, Thad Miller - the keyboard player, who did a very strong and solid job here, the most intristing parts on this album come from this guy, who I must congratulated him because he done such a beautiful work with his instrument, from more balance moemnts with the guitar duo to amore solo effect, the keyboards always shine here, really some fantastic parts on Flying est, the dark Sleepdance and on The bird in hand. Well done guys overall, nice album, I like it a lot, with an excellent cover art a painting made by James Janknegt and inside booklet, with no more then 12 pages. So, I will give 4 stars easy, one of the most pleasent albums from progressive rock I've listen latley, with memorable and intricate arrangements and very good musicianship. Even in places the album has a touch of Genesis '76-77 era, Thirteen of Everything needs a better view, because they worth it evry push from us. Album available at Musea records.
