  • Summary: 13+God is a collaboration between German rocktronica outfit The Notwist and American indie-rappers Themselves. Also guesting are members of Ms. John Soda, Lali Puna, and cLOUDDEAD; basically, if they're on Morr Music or Anticon, you'll find them here.

    A true supergroup -- a set of songs that might be superior to either group's work separately.
  2. The members of 13 & God have created a genuinely rewarding record that is better than the sum of its parts.

    It's an unusual back-and-forth that delivers rapturous results on the seven piece band's sophomore record Own Your Ghost.
  4. It wouldn't be inconceivable to describe 13 & God as the predictable outcome of a Notwist/Themselves collaboration, but, considering the degree of originality demonstrated, this is by no means a shortcoming.
  5. In execution, 13&God is a surprisingly sombre album that'll appeal to fans of forward-thinking hip-hop and beyond.
  6. This is the kind of one-off collaboration that will have fans hoping for a follow-up, because you get the feeling these highly talented musicians have barely scratched the surface.
  7. This is an awkward pairing -- there are a number of nice moments, but many haven't been fully developed, and seams divide them.

    This in amazingly beautiful CD, spare and gorgeous, is filled with stream of consciousness lyrics that will appeal mostly to other artists, This in amazingly beautiful CD, spare and gorgeous, is filled with stream of consciousness lyrics that will appeal mostly to other artists, intellectuals and literary types. If you think P. Diddy and Lil Jon are the best thing in hiphop this is not for you. But then again, if you like P. Diddy you probably don't read much either. Expand
