Customer Review

on June 26, 2007
Thirteen Senses are relatively unheard-of - on the back of hearing 'Contact', this fact becomes a mystery.

Why can a band which produces material of higher personal esteem than Keane and Coldplay move about so quietly? An even greater shock will come when you realise that this is, in fact, Thirteen Senses' second album.

'Contact' is filled with gems, stretching from the attention-grasping 'Contact' to 'Ones and Zeroes', a song which must be the best album closer ever. 'Ones and Zeroes' is typical of the album - it starts off with heavy, melancholy guitars, then pauses, before erupting in a piano/voice section, which gathers more instruments towards the end - eminently surprising and entrancing.

These songs are truly beautiful, and while the sound may remind some of the aforementioned Brit bands, Thirteen Senses add their own personal spin on a well-trodden genre. As a consequence something exceptional and memorable is produced, in the shape of a well-rounded album with no weak lyrics or jarring melodies.
