Thirteen Of Everything - Our Own Sad Fate (2019)

The second album from this US band.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of Chapman stick, bass, drums, piano, synths, guitars, organ, percussion and vocals.
Guest musicians provides synths, guitars, violin and vocals.

This band is new to me. They released their debut album Welcome Humans back in 2005. They returned this year again with this album.

Their listing as a Symphonic Prog band in ProgArchives got my pulse going a bit..... until I heard the music.

Well, the music is not far off symphonic prog as there is a lot of US symphonic prog in their music. The music is also very ambient at times and got a lot of neo-prog influences too.

The problem with this album is that it is all over the place. From ambient to a bit more muscular prog. Then there is some Kansas like prog and.... well, the music on this album is all over the place.

This fifty minutes long album is incoherent, but most of the music on this album is good. It is still a mystery though and I am not sure what the band wanted.... but the album is here as it is and it is well worth checking out.
