5 stars This is the best Fish album to date, without a shadow of dubt. The sound is far from the previous work Field of Crows which was a collection of fine pop tunes, while here you can find the most rockiest songs Fish has ever sung. But at the same time there's a prog soul in every song of the concept, even in pop ones (which, after all, are the best pop songs by Fish from a long long time). The concept behing 13th star is about love relationship, the darkness, the rage after a break-up and finally the hope of finding the right way to happiness, the 13th star (a sort of "forgive, and love again, and again..."). It's hard to say what is the best song here, maybe Square Go or Manchmal, the rockest songs, or maybe Dark Star, where rock meets prog, or even the beautiful pop tunes of Miles De Besos, Zoe 25 and 13th Star (a new Sugar Mice after 20 years). Of course it's an album of 2007, if you're still serching for the progressive music of the old time with Marils this is not your cd. It's much more Porcupine Tree of the last 10 years than Marillion. And the cover... it's maybe the best from the genius Mark Wilkinson... Buy it (better in the fantastic packaging of the limited edition form the Fish site), 13th Star can't let you down.
