"Thirteen of Everything is a modern symphonic progressive rock band whose debut album, Welcome, Humans received wide acclaim. Their 2019 album Our Own Sad Fate and now 2023‘s Time and Other Delusions continue their penchant for adventurous arrangements with interesting rhythms, dramatic mood shifts, strong melodies and thematic development. Though largely informed by the pioneers of progressive rock, there are also other influences from modern prog and other genres. A melancholy ambience is a hallmark, but also subtle humor. Each song can be quite different from one to the next presenting a variety of moods, yet despite this scope, the music still retains an identifiable and unique style that is distinctly Thirteen of Everything.
“Thirteen of Everything has meticulously placed every instrument and note for an extremely mature sound. ..Lush Mellotron passages, beautiful keyboards and soaring prog guitar lines abound. ...the essence of 70s UK prog in a seemingly effortless manner. ...flows so smoothly that you do not immediately recognize its complexities, a testament to its excellent composition and orchestration.”
Henry Schneider, Exposé (expose.org)
"...formidable instrumental ease and a keen sense of musical composition. ...a superb album of symphonic prog, complex, sophisticated, and fascinating from start to finish."
Pierre, Prog Critique (progcritique.com)
"...expressive solo sections... sophisticated arrangements... quirky movements...A solid production that should find favor among many fans of both symphonic progressive rock and neo-progressive rock."
Olav "Progmessor" Björnsen, March 2023 (progressor-net.blogspot.com)
