13th Star belting out of first, my stereo, second the car stereo, and third the stereo again yesterday.... terrific!!!! As with all of the albums, it just depends on your own frame of mind, the circumstances you find yourself in, and of course, how wasted you are at the time. Whether you're angry about something, sad about something, laughing about something...

Without trying to sound to toooo sychophantic... All the albums are unique in their own way and different lines of the songs will mean different things at different times. 13th Star is no exception... :)

Well, I finally broke down and purchased 13th Star... Glad I did. See, I live in Bristol, TN USA and I refuse to purchase a Fish album from anywhere but directly from his site, because it is the only way I can support him. Being where I live, I will never get to see him live.

What a wonderful album. I love the guitar driven songs, it has been a while since Fish really rocked out. I have to say, this is now my third favorite album by him, just after the first two solo works. His lyrics have always touched me in some way and this is one of his strongest lyrical albums in quite a long time.

Thank you, Fish, for another great album.

I love this album. It's one that really resonates with my own experiences, thought they are pretty universal. It's enough to bring a tear to this cynics eye.

Indeed a great Fish cd, I have to confess I haven't spun it in a while as I was going back to the previous ones, but I am going start playing it again real soon & looking forward to re-visiting and re-discovering it. cheers

Hello all. First post on here (I think... :? )

Can anyone who has '13th Star' on vinyl answer a few questions for me?

1. How does it sound on vinyl compared to the CD?
2. What is the quality of vinyl itself like? 180gm or what? 33 rpm or 45rpm?
3. Would you recommend it to me, a vinyl aficionado, even though I have '13th Star' on CD?

ps. Fish - any chance of an EMI 180gm pressing of 'Vigil...'?

It's just a State of Mind...

1. Dont know as i dont have a turntable.

2. it is a thing od beauty, black, shiny, with a round lable and a wee hole perfectly placed in the dead centre. To save it getting dirty, it comes in a sleeve, and a cover, which has got a lovely doodle on it by some Mark Wilkinson, who have a great chain of discount stores and sells razors with more blades in than you actually need. Allegedly it goes at 33rpm, but on a good day with a tail wind it can go up to 45 rpm, if you hire Pinkie and Perky or the Stig to drive it.

3. Narurally, yes.

welcome to the forum......... :)

Have to say that I didn't realise that you could buy the new stuff on vinyl, would love to as I play all of mine quite regularly.

Listened to the album the other day for the first time in well over a year and '13th' still strikes me as a wonderful album. If anything I'd forgotten just how magnificent the production is on this- stunning.
