This album, following on from the band's earlier effort, Diesel and the power, has helped catapult them into the limelight they deserve. Far less cheezy, and more distictive than the first album, Total 13 adds a power and energy to the bands sound. Songs like Make me Madman, and Highlights are instant hits and others such as 8-balled and UFO Romeo are also superb. In fact few of the songs are bad, making for a truely classic album. Similar to the Supersuckers in many ways, yet more punchy and energised, this album has perhaps not yet gained the recognition it deserves. However still a work of immense talent and innovation. 5 stars by anybody's standards.
