4 stars Cats, robots, monkeys and tigers.

I am enthousiast about this album, really. 313 is at first a blend of this and that; mainly tiny songs that have no connections between them. But disliiking the album because of it's lack of 'progressive concept' is not listening with your ears correctly.

313 has the most potential in melodies of all Phideaux' albums. Why? Every song is so c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y crafted, they're just not stretched into an epic. Most of the songs have this Doomsday Afternoon quality and if you exploit them a bit, they would become epics easily.

I'd say 90% of this album is delightful, especially the robot song, the one about cats, Sick of Me and the track Never Gonna Go. The latter is extremely impressive, having such strengh and grandeur in only 3 minutes, it's majestic!

313 smashes into smithereens albums build on the same patron (later Pink Floyd for instance).

I discovered something great, and spread the word in all the land.
